How will the HPE product stack up against the Dell OEM partnership with Nutanix?

I think it will stack up very well. One choice is to do an OEM relationship like they did with Nutanix. The other is to actually have home-grown proprietary IP [intellectual property] that actually works incredibly well on our DL380 [ProLiant servers]. That is the biggest concern we heard from the channel -- they said Nutanix would love to figure out how to make Nutanix work on a DL380. Well, actually, I would rather have our hyper-converged solution on the largest installed base of servers in the market. So that is the direction we decided to go in.

Kudos to our R&D team. From beginning to end, version 1.0 took four months. We are on it and I think the channel is going to be pretty pleased.
