To the Editor:
to Jim Hawkins July article concerning SCSI and the HP 3000 (Non-HP disks may cause risks, HP
reports), I am curious as to how he would address the SCSI
interfaces between the 3000 and the EMC Symmetrix disc storage arrays
which my HP 3000s have been using since 1996. I do not believe EMC
utilizes HPs firmware, although it will, and it certainly does
recognize the HP 3000 host driver, SYMMETRIX, for effective
communications between host and disc.
In the almost eight
years of being on EMCs here at HNS and utilizing Symmetrix storage
for user volume sets, I have not experienced a single disc-related
failure. In my opinion, thats damn good engineering on both
sides of the equation!
