Do you see hyper-scalers as the primary market for the new higher-capacity enterprise drives going forward?

For big data in general, the place where that’s growing the fastest is the hyper-scale community. But we do see on-prem use cases and applications expanding and growing there. So, it’s really anything [related to] storage deployed at scale you’ll see this benefit. You also see, just to go off on a tangent for a second to support our argument, we are investing heavily in our ActiveScale line.
