EMC and the 7 Dwarves

Good wrap up of the big iron storage industry.

EMC and the 7 dwarves – part 1 and EMC and the 7 dwarves – pt 2:

EMC has been gaining marketshare over the last several years. The world’s largest data storage company is getting larger. […] EMC’s position is analogous to IBM’s in the 70s: EMC has the most successful scale-up OLTP arrays; offers better support; and keeps adding useful features. […] Expect to see a several of the dwarves leave the big iron storage array business. Let’s look at each of the competitors in turn.

EMC vs. Oracle, Hitachi, Dell, NetApp, HP, IBM and Fujitsu.
