Re: Is SolidFire out in Left Field, or Are They Playing a Whole New Ballgame? -
"Cool things SolidFire is doing: - The scale-out architecture for iSCSI is unusual in storage generally and SSD specifically - Global dedupe across all nodes if very, very cool (if this works!) - QoS per LUN is super nifty too - Multi-tenant reporting, monitoring, config (REST!) is useful to the target market In other words, SolidFire would be cool WITHOUT being in the service provider space. The fact that they've focused on a needy niche is doubly cool." - Stephen Foskett
