Is NetApp the only player in File Systems & Storage?

If you read September/October 2007 issue of ACM Queue, you may get that impression.

Recently, I read this issue and interestingly all three articles in Q focus on File Systems and Storage covering pNFS, Hard Disk Drives and Storage Virtualization topics are authored by people from Network Appliance.

Though, these articles are worth the read, it most probably is the oversight of ACM Queue editors that focus on File Systems and Storage became focus for Network Appliance.

Only saving grace for the editors is the Interview with SUN engineers who created ZFS else NetApp marketing will be distributing reprints of whole issue.
