Netapp! Welcome to the HCI Party!

As if the hyper converged market wasn’t already crowded enough with offerings from EMC, Cisco, Nutanix, and Simplivity, NetApp has finally thrown their hat into the ring today with a SolidFire based solution.  In my opinion SolidFire is an awesome product and I am happy to see NetApp finally doing more with it post-acquisition.  Based on the messaging and configuration options it is apparent they are targeting enterprise-scale workloads instead of edge use cases.
