Wow - great review. Thanks for taking the time to leave it and really glad to hear that 3PAR and Synergy is a great fit for you. As for Nimble Storage, you can bet we are working hard to develop our roadmap and our engineers will be working hard to include Nimble where it…

Actually there's a difference and I'd suggest what you need to look at is the integration between SRM and storage. Storage integration with SRM is key and if you look on the VMware Compatibility Guide for SRM, storage is all that is listed, not servers. Last I checked…

Riza - trying to give you an accurate answer is kind of like asking "who much will dinner cost"? To get a quote that is in the ballpark, you need to work with either an HPE rep to get you a quote based on the details of what you want (capacity, performance, features, etc.)…

Ozgur Bulent Koza - I am not speaking for Gary but your conclusion that NetApp is better if you need local snapshots and 3PAR for remote replication is inaccurate. 3PAR has more than adequate snapshot capabilities and has advantages over NetApp. And in fact with 3PAR and…

@Peter Fairclough - if you have a 3PAR 7450, the full name is HPE 3PAR StoreServ 7450. Some people use just 3PAR, some just StoreServ but they are the same thing.

Answered a question: Pure Storage or NetApp for VDI?
Anil - I don't disagree with your perspective but if someone posts content questioning viability of HP Storage or FUD, I will respond. People are influenced by opinions and given the nature of Martin's comment, I think it was appropriate for me to respond.

Martin - Yes, I still work at HP and don't expect that to change. The announcement of layoffs as I understood it (I don't speak for HP in this case because I don't know details) is related to Enterprise Services. It's never good news when people lose their jobs but I'm very…

Joe - so much of what you said is inaccurate. My colleague John already corrected you on your 3PAR misinformation/FUD. Your information about how analyst track midrange SAN arrays is also incorrect. Vendors like HP have to separate spindles sold inside a server from…
