Hello,
I was discussing an opportunity(Storage/VirtualSAN) with our Sales Contact at SUSE, and the guy at SUSE advised me



Suse enterprise storage positioning is for cost/gb of use cases - data retention, archival, backup etc. If this is not the case, you may not want to push for this customer



Do you agree with the statement, that SES is a tier 3 storage(for backup and archival etc) ? is not meant to replace the tier 1 Storage.

No I don't agree with the above statement and I don't think it's
SUSE's aim for the SUSE Enterprise Storage (SES) product. You may

Thanks for your very input/feedback. I checked the URL(https://www.linux.com/news/featured-blogs/200-libby-clark/815268-suse-explains-why-the-future-of-enterprise-storage-is-open-source) you shared and there I found a response from Mr. Jason Phippen, SUSE's head of global product marketing. as:


SUSE is building our technology on top of Ceph and deploying our engineering resources to build and deliver storage solutions. Initial use cases will target archive, object and bulk (block) solutions.


don't you think it sounds pretty close to:
