Curt Monash posted the following after meeting the folks at both EMC and Greenplum:


We've been fans of Greenplum since meeting Luke and Scott whilst still in pre-Greenplum 'Metapa' days at a Teradata Partners show in Seattle. It is an MPP play after all, how could we not like it!

Good luck chaps!

P.S. For anyone that wants to try Greenplum we has a demo MPP system at VLDB Solutions.
