Compellent spokesperson Rob Davis provided the following comment:
Compellent could have provided an interesting angle to your Fibre Channel/iSCSI story:-
- Compellent was the first midrange SAN firm to support both Fibre Channel and iSCSI server connectivity in a single system.
- 3PAR and Xiotech have only had this functionality for a few months, but Compellent's customers have had it for a year or more.
- We have several customers who are using both Fibre Channel and iSCSI, and several more who chose Compellent because they didn't have to choose either FC or iSCSI. System admins deserve this flexibility, the vast majority of vendors simply haven't been able to meet the need."
Point taken. thanks for the note.
