HP 3PAR SPC-1 results put to rest!

Greg Schulz is an analyst/author and I got to do a podcast with him a couple of months ago at SNW where we talked about a session he had focused on cloud computing.  He has a new blog he's writing for InfoStor that he's calling Storage Metrics and Measurements that matter.  In his latest post, he takes up the HP 3PAR SPC-1 benchmark results and addresses the question of "did HP short-stroke the SPC-1 results".

NetApp spins their SPC-1 results

I just finished watching the exciting conclusion of the Euro2012 semifinal match between Spain and Portugal.  Call me weird but I couldn't help think about NetApp and their new SPC-1 results.  If you missed the game, it went to penalty kicks (PK) to decide who would move on to the Euro2012 championship game.  Both goalies made excellent diving saves to start things off but then Portugal drew first blood scoring on their second PK. 


What does the game have to do with NetApp SPC-1 results?

After Portugal scored first, I thought they should "pull a NetApp" and just leave the field and claim victory. That's what NetApp is doing with their latest SPC results. Here's what I mean.

NetApp CEO Tom Georgens made some comments today about "Big tech companies" compared to storage only vendors that need to be addressed because of course Mr. Georgens will not give the rest of the story.  Read today's post from Lee Johns to get the rest of the story.
