No EMC effect

The graph of isilon clearly shows EMC had little or no effect on it's numbers. It seems like a regular EMC marketing campaign to show NetApp in negative light. Truth to be known is EMC is rattled by NetApp in core SAN accounts and EMC will do anything to keep NetApp down. Remember painting pavements, SPEC glory with 3000 SSDs ...

NetApp on the other hand is very quiet chipping bits of core SAN accounts. NetApp stand-up and TALK.

There is no way Isilon would have almost doubled their revenue in 3 quarters without EMC. Sure, they would have increased it like any growing company, but almost doubled it? No.

Get past the blind fanboi-ism!!
