    Thanks for the prompt reply but the issues which come across for storage solutions providers who are not products centric is the custom application development cost is always going to be more then the popular products which they buy but they end up paying more when they need to scale that product or customize it according to their needs......

    Hardware is a different story - loads of options

    Hope this helps...
