I've opened the lowest-severity cases and generally can express the
same frustration.  I have also opened a high-severity case and talked
to a very knowledgeable engineer with all kinds of cross-functional
storage experience.

My biggest frustration is they are very aggressive at triaging our
cases (we are an academic subscription customer, we pay much less but
only a few machines are covered by the commercial SLAs) down to the
lowest severity possible unless we yell loudly that we are down.

But, fwiw, I've had the above experience with IBM, HDS, and Cisco.
It's a script that we follow until we yell loud enough at the right
people.  IBM probably being the worst.
