Posted by: Craig Nunes

  When good companies get acquired, it always inspires a lot of discussion about the investors and employees. Was it good or bad for the shareholders?

Posted by: Ganesh Venkitachalam

  Customers care about data reduction, especially on flash, because pure and simple, it saves money. Data reduction comes from compression and deduplication.
