You may have missed it, but EqualLogic released thin provisioning the same day HDS did. Its a very well thought out implementation that does not have the array limitations you describe, provides multiple levels of alerts and thresholds, throttles performance for rogue applications AND allows the function to be turned on and off.

Thanks Mark, actually Equalogic was one fo the companies that I was thinking about when I wrote the entry. Good to hear that you can span an allocation pool across more than one array as that does answer my primary concern about array-based thin-provisioning.
