What a week! No-one that we can find is getting stuck into NetApp and the company has backed off its usual aggression.
But there is other aggro out there this week as HDS' Michael Hay decides EMC's product range is a bit light on. IBM is not happy with EMC either, but EMC has no response we can see. Chuck Hollis does have a little anger for those who offer narrow definitions of the cloud. (He also wants a personal cloud - doesn't everyone? - adopting a theme from StorageZilla.
Mike Worrkman of Pillar data is a bit grumpy too, because people keep saying silly things about SSDs. Scott Lowe finds FcoE's lack of multi-hop fabrics annoying and About restore labels CommVault “possibly misleading.”
There is also a bit of argy-bargy about on the subject of storage virtualisation, which StorageBod finds is not used as accurately as he would like. HP goes all corporate with its look at the subject.
Oldies but goodies
Everyone knows the “If Microsoft made cars” gag, and this week new versions get an airing as Steve Foskett gives a reboot a whirl and Steve Duplessie does the same with some toaster gags. 3Par wants in on the joke, declaring itself a Mini.
Lastly, we've spotted a new storage blog: Grumpy Storage. Check it out here.
