Finally…A pissing match!

There is a little Storage Pissing match in progress between a couple of storage vendors…It’s kind of interesting to watch!

Netapp:  sponsored a report by Veritest in which NetApp’s performance was far greater then that of the Clariion

Chuck Hollis (EMC): responded on his blog to dispell the claims and included a link to EMC’s own test of the same thing

Chuck Hollis (EMC): ensure’s his point is clear in a follow up to his first post

Chris Evans: points out Netapp’s response to EMC where NetApp is again purported to have better performance over EMC

So it looks like the ball is in EMC’s court again, I hope the conversation is kept in the open so that we can all benefit. I am not going to weigh in though (I am a little biased), if you really are interested and can’t afford the gear to test it yourself, ask for demo gear you should show your interest in this kind of information!

For more details on these systems performance (specifically for Exchange), the ESRP reports by these vendors may be a good starting place….
