If you are investing or thinking in investing in HILL go to the dot hill website and bring yourself up to speed on products offered. Listen to the archived investor conference presentations as well as earnings updates....call in this Thurs after the bell for the earnings presentation. Listen to what they have to say. I have been calling into every presentation they have had in the last year or 2 and am pretty darn impressed as to how they are turning this company around (servers---> software). They have alreay said in conf. calls the software stacks up nicely with ISLN and even 3PAR although they are more large company geared. Kammersgard also mentioned that they were working on an Assureed UVS type of software that is geared toward larger companies. One would have to think that Dot Hill will be well off with just a minute fraction of this virtual Cloud market. Only question is will they be able to gain sufficient edge/traction with the VAR distribution model. HP having 60% of Dot Hill sales is also a bit concerning but everything that I hear is that they have a great working relationship.
My guess is that earnings will be on high end of range given with a slight increase in earnings estimates. HILL is conservative on estimates.
So listen to the calls...it is the only way you will get info on company.
