8 Biggest Partner Takeaways From Dell's Q1 Earnings Report
Transition For Storage Customers
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Chief Sales Office Phil Davis last week slammed Dell EMC's new storage product roadmap, claiming it raises questions about which products will survive. Although not directly naming HPE, Clarke said, "despite what may be being said by others, our products on the roadmap today are supported throughout their lifetime, period. And we will provide a non-disruptive migration from the old product to the new product."
Clarke said he doesn't "spend time thinking about how my competitors are responding to" the new storage roadmap. He said partners and customers are asking, "Jeff, we can buy what we're buying today, and when Dell has the new thing ready, we can seamlessly migrate to the new thing?' [My answer is,] 'Yes sir, that's correct."
