Is HP's Left-hand SAN based on Dot-Hill?

I'm doing some researcs of Midrange storage and have read (somewhere in the forum)that the Left-hand SAN is a Dot-Hill OEM solution.
I want to have correct information when asked to brief it by my manager.

Not at all!

The P4000 is based on Lefthand Networks Inc. technology. HP bought that company a while ago and integrated it.

The MSA2000/P2000 product line is the result of a development partnership with DotHill. It means that HP does not simply buy hardware from DH and stamps a "HP" label on the box.

Thanks Uwe. My confusion was thinking the P4000 was same product line as p2000, just a newer more capacity and improved model.

Thanks for your response..
