I thought this is an interesting development because NetApp, HP, and IBM are all partners of this company that former Dell CEO Kevin Rollins is running. See here
"Qlusters, the Linux-based clustering operating systems start-up, has raised $10.36 million in Series C funding from NetApp, Benchmark Capital, Charles River Ventures, DAG Ventures and Israel Seed Partners. That makes $33 million. NetApp is a new investor."
I wonder how much longer it will be before Hitachi and EMC invest? : )
