The Register understands that an all-hands email landed today, August 25, detailing a 5.5 per cent cut to the company’s 11,000-ish-strong workforce. Employees were swiftly informed if their roles were deemed redundant, and that this would be their last day. Cuts seem to have been heaviest among marketing staff – including technical marketers – and engineers and developers acquired with all-flash array vendor SolidFire in 2015. Comments in public-but-anonymous forums suggest remaining staff see the cuts as something of an admission that the SolidFire acquisition has run its course.
