  4. Citrix Puts Storage ‘On Notice’!

    That's right - we just put storage throughput and IOPS officially "on notice"!  And in turn (whether we really meant to or not), we made every storage company that got into business over the last ~6 years (since we introduced VDI) to solve the dreaded IOPS problem think twice.  Citrix just threw down the gauntlet and it means we can finally stop talking about IOPS. ...

    FamilyGuy-PeterSoccer

    I was 17. The field was damp. The last defender didn’t notice me, my teammate did. The pass was perfect.
