Two weeks after XtremIO Gotcha

17th Sept update:  I’ve been contacted directly by EMC, and they say they’ll work through this with us. Sounds promising. There’s been a lot of coverage on the topic. I’ve provided additional links at the end of the post.The funniest comment I’ve read so far is “More like Xtrem uh-oh”. 16th Sept update: here’s an official response from Chad Sakac http://virtualgeek.typepad.com/virtual_geek/2014/09/on-disruptive-upgrades.html While at VMworld last month, I was networking with attendees when I mentioned my current employer purchased an XtremIO half X-Brick for a VDI project.
