Good work from EMC, Chuck - this is demonstrating a qualified infrastructure, but integrated? I'm not sure I would refer to something with 5 separate management GUI's as integrated.

Avamar GUI
Celerra GUI (+ Navi GUI)
VMWare VirtualCenter
Dell Open Manage GUI

Ah, the inevitable "well, where's the single pane of glass that does everything I want?" "therefore you can't possible call it integrated!" line ...

Sure -- we all want that, no argument.

But in the meantime, maybe what we've done will be useful?

(BTW, you forgot the Cisco GUI and a few others :-)

    Chuck now works for Oracle, and is now deeply embroiled in IT infrastructure.

    Previously, he was with VMware for 2 years, and EMC for 18 years before that, most of them great.

    He enjoys speaking to customer and industry audiences about a variety of technology topics, and -- of course -- enjoys blogging.

    Chuck lives in Vero Beach, FL with his wife and four dogs when he's not traveling. In his spare time, Chuck is working on his second career as an aging rock musician.

    Warning: do not ever buy him a drink when there is a piano nearby.

  • Frequency of Updates
    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
