Looking back through my posts its been some months since I last opened the floor to you all, so here is you chance, a free floor. Ask anything you like, about SVC of course, but if I don't know I'm sure I know someone that will.
Recently I've heard some quite elaborate FUD from the usual suspects, but also recently from some Oracle folks too... bleading edge technology (hardly true as we've been shipping SVC for seven years now!)
The recent SSD addition to SVC has also lead to a lot of questions, and I've come to understand the current NAND based technology pretty well, its good to see that end users are understanding the value proposition of SVC + SSD, and things should start to get interesting later this year as we introduce smart tiering solutions - have a read over Hu's recent post - and in particular my comments at the end...
Anyway, feel free to ask your questions and I'll do what I can to answer, even if it's issues over access to the My developerWorks site itself - although I understand the login / commenting problems should have been resolved :) - if not barry.whyte ( at ) uk.ibm.com
