Amazing. As a data center architect I am impressed.

Way to go 3PAR! Great investment protection for your customers. I hope you have a big update to your vCenter plug-in coming too..could use some feature enhancements to keep up with your competition.

In Chad's article he shows in green all of the EMC integration points with the vSphere stack. Can you comment on where all 3PAR integrates? For example, I think only EMC had a multi-pathing plug-in. It would be sweet if 3PAR matched EMC one for one.

Thanks for this, nice write up, any chance of a video preview before September?

Nicely done guys! I haven't researched your major competitors on these features yet but it's nice to see the industry is getting it. I've whined for years on the importance of reclamation with thin provisioning (I'm sure I'm not alone) and this zero block detection and dynamic reclamation for VMware is huge. Is there a road map for extending this concept to general storage volumes?

Think about it: Any volume with dynamic inline zero block management/reclamation in the hardware coupled with seamless caching, tiering and deduplication... it's almost sexual.
