Surprise, surprise. After months after bad-mouthing their competitors for their capacity guarantee programs, EMC has done an about face and has announced their own, very restricted, guarantee program.
EMC offers a 20% capacity guarantee, as opposed to 50% from 3PAR's Get Thin Guarantee program. (FWIW, other vendors have also made 50% guarantees) I guess EMC must be concerned they won't really be able to do it. Also, 3PAR's capacity guarantee applies to EMC customers, but EMC's program does not apply to 3PAR customers. What does that say?(Video note: For readers unfamiliar with #storagebeers, it was an event that started in the UK, by the blogger Storagebod and it has become a meme in the online storage community.)
