|FAQs about the iSCSI Buyer
|Q. Can I contribute questions which will be asked in the survey?|
Yes. We can't guarantee that all questions (or any particular question) will be
used. But the survey design will seek to get answers which answers which benefit
the iSCSI industry (both buyers and vendors).
Q. My company is
not an advertiser on STORAGEsearch. How does that limit my ability to
participate in the survey?
A. That's not a restrictive factor
for contributing questions. Or commenting on the draft survey design.
Are you looking for sponsors?
N. Yes. But we will run the
survey anyway with or without them. Sponsors will get access to more of the
results than will be published in our follow up articles.
Will all the results be published on the STORAGEsearch web site?
We will extract results which are of interest to readers and publish them in
later articles. But not everything will be of interest to our readers.
