Now that you mention it, I do recall a bit about Equalogic in the Dell
pitch. It didn't really stand out in my mind and a lot of the
technical details were similar enough to the EMC details that they
just melded in my mind.

If you think Equalogic is slick, check out 3par. They've got a lot of
very cool features and concepts. Unfortunately, this comes at a higher
price. To each his own, I guess.

Our meetings didn't focus a lot on scalability of capacity, as we just
didn't think to ask. I think the basic pitch was "it scales well"
without any real hard data.
