Thanks Tinker and everyone for starting and pursuing this very useful thread.
I have a related quetion / thought:
I was under the impression that there is a benefit to each NAS and SAN, according to the specific needs of the customer, and that, in fact, for many enterprises, their requirements can be best met with a mix of SAN and NAS. Maybe in some sense, some NAS becomes subsystems for the enterprise SAN. Or NAS is used for more departmental, localized kinds of storage, where SAN is really needed for enterprise-scope data.
If this is true, I would think that offering both would give EMC some real advantage as a one-stop shop for all of your storage requirements.
My understanding of how the two are used together or not is pretty limited, but this idea is one of the things that's keeping me long EMC as well as NTAP.
Comments? Is this a valid concept, or not?
