Anil,Yes, Invista is new technology it that it uses intelligent SAN switches to crack open FCP packets, inspect their contents, and depending on the Invista mapping tables, modify their contents and passes the new FCP packet to the target physical device. No other storage virtualization system does this.<div>&nbsp;</div> A customer is a "technology enthusiast" if it is willing to be the first on its block to purchase based on the promise of new technology, rather than based on references from others.<div>&nbsp;</div> A company can be a "technology enthusiast" for some areas, and pragmatist or conservative in others. Often companies are "technology enthusiasts" already for other technologies, and are willing to try out products that make use of a new technology.
