Today at VMware’s Partner Exchange, we launched one of the coolest things I’ve seen in storage – VMAX Cloud Edition. Is it just another storage product in the VMAX family? Nope – rather it’s a bigger idea..
Not everyone quite gets it at first – and frankly some people won’t get it, but you can tell immediately when it finally sinks in (the expressions are priceless). It’s the first piece of IT infrastructure that looks like it was designed for cloud model from the ground up. That’s probably because it was.
Judging by the interest here at VMware PEX and at the EMC Partner Bootcamp where we dove deeper, and talked about where we’re taking the ideas behind VMAX Cloud Edition next, it’s going to make quite an impact on how private IT and service providers build clouds with VMware, Openstack or any other cloud orchestration stack for that matter.
Here’s link to the launch video and a lot of other content if you want to go straight to the details.
Ok, so what’s so different? Read on for more!
