Srivastava: Scale itself is a very big differentiator. How much does ONTP scale? On a closer look, we can see that it's very limited. The very reason why NetApp is facing this scale issue is, they designed this solution for a scenario that existed many years ago. EMC developed it in 2011 and hence we designed the product for platform 3. NetApp may address the scale part of it, but their design base is such that they cannot address the 'Platform 3' challenge. Their solutions are not designed to handle today's public clouds.
