Dell in 2nd and last Place :) Is that what happens when you OEM?

As you know we know got Dell EqualLogic PS boxs, but back in 2004 we ordered Dell CX700 to run microsoft dynamics ax 3.0 (Axapta 3.0). We are still running them today and moving to Dell EqualLogic PS with Dell R900.

I found this review "Diogenes Labs Storage Magazine Quality Survey" and it shows the following...

1. Compellent Storage Center
2. EqualLogic PS Series
3. Hitachi Data Systems Thunder 9500 V Series or AMS Series
4. Network Appliance FAS200/FAS900/FAS2000
5. Hp StorageWorks EVA
6. Sun StorageTek 6000
7. IBM FAStT and DS4000/DS6000
8. EMC Clariion CX
9. Dell CX Series

its funny how a company can have a 2nd place product and 9th place OEM product when the real version is 8th place.

I feel we have made the correct choice after reading this, I might have gone for Compellent but.. I dont know if the company will be around for next 5 years. One thing is for sure (well maybe) Dell should be around for the next 5 years.
