@chuck Chuck you are probably the last one to accuse anyone else of FUD. I feel secure about the comments I have made over the last few months, can you say the same thing? Also worth noting that pointing out benefits of another vendor product, other than EMC, is not FUD it is just the distribution of information. @Jerimiah I thought you were pushing the standard marketing line and I didn't realise you were truly surprised. If you look at a lot of the interaction between a lot of vendors and partners, at least in Australia, there is a lot of civil interaction and mutual respect (including storagebeers, vbeers and more)
Wow! you better make sure you and the VCE boys don't fall off that high horse, it is a hell of a fall!! While I disagree with FUD (twitpiss is fud) I find it a bit funny that you are complaining about it. When I was an EMC partner, and as a SNIA member on a blogging tour of different vendors, I have walked out of many EMC presentations where EMC spent at least 20% of the time talking (incorrectly) about issues with the opposing vendors solutions (IBM, NetApp and others), rather than the benefits of their own. I know that there was a large number of EMC reps in Australia presenting FUD documents and info to customers regarding an outage at a major domestic airline; even after accenture noted that the hardware vendor EMC was pointing the finger at was not at fault. I heard a rumour that legal action may be pending regarding this now disinformation spreading now. If that is all you can talk about you need to work on your product offering and/or your messaging and use cases. quick disclousre - I'm a reseller/integrator employee that is a partner with quite a few different vendors - EMC is not one of them. I have previousuly worked with an EMC partner in a pre-sales capacity.
