EMC, We Challenge You!

EMC, we're once again throwing down the gauntlet.  Today the XP24000 put up the highest SPC-2 benchmark result in the world.  The top spot for such demanding workloads as video streaming goes to the XP.  Once again, your DMX is a no show.  And once again we challenge you, this time to put up an SPC-2 number.  Every other major storage vendor is now posting SPC results.  Every other major storage vendor is now starting to give customers standard, open, audited performance results to show what they've got.  You remain the only vendor keeping your product performance behind a smoke screen of mysterious numbers and internal testing.  We challenge you join us in the world of openness and let customers quit guessing at how low the DMX's performance really is!

Craig, Marc Farley from 3Par here.  It's pretty clear that EMC can't beat the benchmarks that HP/Hitachi (SPC-2) and 3PAR (SPC-1) just posted.  If they could win, they would participate. They certainly have enough people to do the work.

Thanks for the comment Marc.  If EMC could keep up there's no question they'd be publishing numbers.  Clearly DMX can't keep up!
