Chuck, I certainly agree with your statement "Simply put: you can't get this level of storage integration in any other operating system or hypervisor today, and it's unlikely you'll see something similar from anyone else for a very long time." Very true.

I also agree with your comment about how VMware works with its partner ecosystem - including 3PAR. Yes, we are smaller than EMC and Netapp but definitely in some very large key accounts for VMware where we work with them diligently to keep the customer satisfied. We had a very good day today with the announcement of vSphere 4.1.

Many times we are odds but this time, I believe you have nailed it. Well said sir.
