I don't think the so-called FUD was inaccurate at the time.<div>&nbsp;</div> My understanding, gleaned from IBM customers I spoke with, was that back when IBM was only offering the 15-module configuration under the Pay-Grow plan, customers were required to agree to pay for/purchase the entire capacity of the array within 12 months.<div>&nbsp;</div> Good to see IBM finally reacting to the "one size fits all" issue that was raised over a year ago...

Barry,Correct, originally IBM offered only a Capacity-on-Demand feature to pay for less than a full box, but then you had to commit to purchasing the full frame capacity within 12 months. We IBM also offers partial configurations, but some people were still under the impression the entire frame had to be paid for within 12 months, and that is not the case on the partial frame configurations.-- Tony
