I have been traveling over the last few weeks visiting customers around the Northwest. The story is the same pretty much everywhere... Budgets are tight, and our customers are looking for value in their storage support services. The tough economy causes a lot of customers to try new and creative things to keep their costs down.
The supercomputer show in Portland was well attended and their were a lot of our customers there, I was able to catch up with many folks that I have not seen in a while.
