I should ask for royalties 😉
More seriously, this is very interesting and a win-win. Getting real customer data is always difficult and Chad has got it figured out. Customers on the other hand are assured that their data is anonymized (besides, vscsiStats doesn’t capture any real customer data anyway, just the workload characteristics) and get a cool, super-useful tool in return.
Look forward to more vendors trying this … 🙂
