Credit where credit is due

I was reading your book on "Building Storage Networks" and it is like a journey from SCSI to FC or direct attached to networked storage. Thanks for writing such a wonderful book. However, there is one point where I felt the credit for NAS was wrongly given to NetApps. It should have been Auspex Systems since the foundation for NAS appliance/server was first laid down by late the Bruce Nelson of Auspex.

Yes, you are correct. Auspex was the pioneer in NAS. Network Appliance was a spin-off that developed different NAS technology and greatly expanded the market.
