Yesterday I traveled to Philadelphia to visit the AIIM show, I saw the folks from EMC, Sony, NetApp, IBM and HDS. The showfloor was not very well attended and so I got a chance too talk to the folks manning the booths when they were not just talking to each other. Neither the IBM folks nor the NetApp folks I spoke to knew anything much about the new IBM & NetApp Alliance. I guess it takes a while for reality and the press releases to merge.

After I came back from the show I spoke to a customer about some transferable licensed NetApp F840's with Cluster and NFS licenses. It seems that NetApp was offering him a price of over $120,000 for a clustered pair of FAS 270C's. I told him to go to SPEC.org and check out the performance of the FAS 270 before buying one.

Zerowait has a large stock of Transferable Licensed NetApp filers in stock and ready to ship, we can configure them to meet your requirements. We look forward to having you join the Zerowait family of satisfied customers.
