EMC VxRack thrown on the review rack

píru

Re: Not really a VxRack test

Every node in VxRack contributes compute, memory and storage to the overall cluster..... if your saying to separate out compute by itself in VxRack, that's not really HCI. Am I not understanding your point?

Yawn

FusionIO is a cool, cool, COOL product BUT I dont see enterprises adopting it.

From a consumer point of view, I'd have one please...... if it didnt cost me a few limbs...

NetApp snoozing at the wheel of incumbency juggernaut, says chap

Re: Interesting that this gets posted during NetApp's fiscal year end

Dimitri - That graph does make me laugh... if you combined EMC's storage products together it would be way above NetApp.

I like NetApp dont get me wrong but it will be interesting to see how long the one box for all approach lasts.

Re: Okay, I'll bite, Chris

Dear AC from Dell,

Ex VNX customer? that's pretty short term then as VNX hasn't even been on market for 2 years yet.

Re: The market doesn't want unified storage? Really?

Lets see what turns out best, storage that presents itself as a jack of all trades or purpose built storage for specific application and workload needs :-)

I mean, NetApp started off as a filer for a reason right?

Backups? Use disk. Archives? Disk. Particle accelerators? Fine, tape

Re: Praise tapes

Clueless CIOS buy disk backup? what a bold statement.

So many inaccuracies in your post I've got my hand over my face like the Captain of the Star Trek Enterprise.

Surprise......

No not really, people were quick to slate EMC for being the first to announce a price increase as a result of the Thai floods.... O look so are other vendors.

*EMC Employee*

Psiren - I would love to see that quote for £1000 :-) the price I see is vastly different to that, even with the price hike.

Time will tell but I expect this price hike to be the case for everyone..
