To BruceBrown and other GGers. I wish to clarify my question.I don't see BRCD as a goriila. I'll admit I have looked well at EMC and NTAP and know a little of BRCD., but it seems BRCD would compete with EMC and NTAP to some extent.Why wouldn't it be a Royalty game and not a GG.

Where is BRCD's gorilla advantage.

1 What is it's Discontinous innovation?

2 What is is Proprietary architecture?

3 What are the barrriars to entry into it's market?

4 What are the switching costs away from it?

5 What is its value chain? Who are its allies?

6 I'll give you the Torando market exists for Braocade now.

But how can Brocade hang on to this Torando market?

Granted I maybe ignorant but I don't see Brocade as a Gollia but it appears to me as a prince, in a Royalty game.

Please enlighten me and reccomend sources to show the gollira atributes of Brocade.I don't see them.

Thanks in advance. Ed
