    Just learned about the platforms that will be able to be analyzed with LiveOptics on November 16th, when Mitrends isn't supported any longer. With the exception of Netbackup, all of the platforms that will be able to be analyzed are Dell/EMC platforms.  I've used Mitrends very recently on competitive takeouts of IBM TSM.  I've also used Mitrends for analysis of Exchange.  Centera is going EOL.  Need Centera now, too.  All of those assessments within Mitrends were valuable to the entire community.  Hopefully, Dell/EMC will be able to rapidly re-create what we had with Mitrends.
