I want to open the way I will close: this title above applies to us at EMC (me too!) - frankly anyone.
I also don't want to "bury the lead" (as I tend to do in longwided posts), so here's the lead:
- AFAs are the way to go for most transactional workloads - and this is more true every day.
- XtremIO 3.x is doing great!
- XtremIO 4.0 is coming, it's making something that is already incredible even better, and it's 100% non-disruptive.
- "Xpect" :-) to see lots of poop flinging - stand clear, and try to avoid it at all cost.
Read on for more details (and to find out what the heck triggered this post :-)
