Very interesting and good post that clears up some of the confusion between these!
On theregister there was recently a post that maybe HP will announce the new EVA’s in Vegas in June – the P6000.
I just opened a discussion on the ITRC forum, maybe we’ll see some more posts there. I myself am hoping for some thin provisioning or why not SAS backends instead of the quite notorious FC loops. How about native iSCSI or FCoE?
*** 2011-05-05 Update, HP has now officially announced some information about it. For example that it will have the SAS-backend! Whoop! No more loop problems :)
*** 2011-05-05 Another one! Now it came – Thin Provisioning!
