Nice NetApp, voodoo HDS, cloudy EMC, virtual HP and IBM attacks!

Just another week in the storage blogosphere as HDS sticks a pin into EMC's enterprise strategy, IBM and HP get narky, CommVault cops criticism and everyone loves NetApp – for once.

What a week! No-one that we can find is getting stuck into NetApp and the company has backed off its usual aggression.

There's even some love for the company out there, with Storage Anarchist admiring the book written by NetApp's Dave Hitz. StorageBod likes the book too.


But there is other aggro out there this week as HDS' Michael Hay decides EMC's product range is a bit light on. IBM is not happy with EMC either, but EMC has no response we can see. Chuck Hollis does have a little anger for those who offer narrow definitions of the cloud. (He also wants a personal cloud - doesn't everyone? - adopting a theme from StorageZilla.


Mike Worrkman of Pillar data is a bit grumpy too, because people keep saying silly things about SSDs. Scott Lowe finds FcoE's lack of multi-hop fabrics annoying and About restore labels CommVault “possibly misleading.


There is also a bit of argy-bargy about on the subject of storage virtualisation, which StorageBod finds is not used as accurately as he would like. HP goes all corporate with its look at the subject.


Oldies but goodies


Everyone knows the “If Microsoft made cars” gag, and this week new versions get an airing as Steve Foskett gives a reboot a whirl and Steve Duplessie does the same with some toaster gags. 3Par wants in on the joke, declaring itself a Mini.


Storagezilla gets back to basics and HDS' Hu Yoshida visits the (storage) pyramids. 


Lastly, we've spotted a new storage blog: Grumpy Storage. Check it out here.
