Yoshida: We now have the opportunity to virtualize across boxes, not just vertical virtualization, but horizontal virtualization too. We can have LUN (logical unit number) that can spread across multiple systems through dynamic provisioning in a vertical way. But we can do it horizontally. We will take virtualization to another dimension.
CW: Do you think that only handful of the big, multi-technology companies will be left in five years?
Yoshida: It maybe the other way round. Some big companies will not be around. There would be more start ups. This is a very technology intensive industry. Technology innovation and its reliability has been a high point for us. Analysts and competitors appreciate our technology, eventhough they may criticize our marketing at times.
For partners, customers and employees, we are an easy company to work with.
