VMware’s software-led approach supports multiple hardware consumption options: from mild to wild — you’re not limited to someone else’s idea of an appliance if that’s not your thing.
And I’m really enjoying seeing the creativity from our hardware partners in coming up with clever and unique configurations. The more the better!
At EMC World, the Intel team certainly raised the bar on impressive off-the-shelf Virtual SAN configuration — a 32-node all-flash NVMe-capable VSAN configuration that delivers both outrageous performance and substantial capacity in a slick single-rack footprint.
Better yet, they splurged for some very cool custom bezel graphics. After all, it’s all about how your equipment looks, right?
I tweeted out a picture and a brief description from the show floor. My twitter gang went so crazy commenting and retweeting, I thought I should loop back and share more detail.
In particular, I wanted to interview John Hubbard — the cool cat at Intel that put this impressive rig together in very short order.
