It's an amazing piece of technology that somehow is able to be big (in storage capacity), fast (in data rate), and simple (to use). We really couldn't believe it until we were able to see it in person a few months before the conference. The first time we saw it, we knew that Flashblade was going to be huge, and that we were responsible for introducing this incredible product to the world.
Highlighted during the keynote presentation, this product announcement could not have pumped up an auditorium of tech nerds any more. Believe us. It was awesome.
