For first release SCALE wont even have basic compute clustering features. So nothing "HCI" to see here. I also already came accross a lot of complaints about the HCI marketing when SCALE isn't even going to be a HCI solution at first release yet.

So forrester seems to just be either:
A. "blog for higher" PR stunt
B. Not doing it's research.

I think it's time for at least two people calling themselves "senior analyst" to get the sack.

To be clear:
This is not meant to be "****ting" on SCALE (it's an awesome product), but if this is the quality of forrester research I think investors should REALLY need to run away from them quickly. Before they buy into some piramidscheme doing the same "quality research" by their "senior analists". :')
