Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated EMC and HPE. We looked at and considered Nimble, before it became HPE, and we looked for an IBM solution. When I looked for other vendors I found their… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Pure was on our shortlist. There are not a whole lot of other competitors that do what Pure does. They architected their own SAND right from scratch and it's a versatile product.
