    What I wonder is what this means for Dell's relationship with EMC. For a long time now, Dell has been reselling the Clariion line from EMC (often significantly cheaper than EMC Direct). With the purchase of EqualLogic, it makes an interesting relationship. Granted, EMC/Dell Clariion will still be the choice in the fiber world when purchasing a fiber san, but EMC has been pushing the iSCSI capabilities in the CX3 series where EqualLogic has made it's name (in the iSCSI world).
