Last night I phoned Jon Toigo because of the search storage article and we chatted about it at length. This morning I read his blog. It seems that the press and the competition is now starting to ask the same questions that Jon, Zerowait, and our customers have been asking for a couple of years now.
When is NetApp going to provide reliable, repeatable and verifiable performance numbers? Competition in storage is strong and growing, and I predict that NetApp’s well funded competitors will soon start to push for Verification of NetApp’s claims.
It is not only Zerowait and our customers who are looking for real numbers, but also the trade press.
