Gay Watson, CTO Nexsan Technologies, Inc.

Chuck, are you coming down to the VMware gig in Orlando? I'd like to buy you an ale.

Chuck Hollis

Hi Gary -- no, won't be making that one -- but I think you'll be seeing many of my EMC compatriots down there.

If you want, you can drop me an email at hollis (underscore) chuck (at) emc (dot) com if you'd like to compare travel schedules.

as the V-Max is tightly integrated into the virtualisation layer this will be the system for the Enterprise cloud architecture - right ? Now how would the Atmos fit into that Architecture and how would you position ATmos next to the new symmetrix ?


Chuck Hollis

Hi Michael

Atmos is great for large amounts of content in multiple locations. V-Max is great for consolidated workloads at scale. They're very different scenarios, no?

You will find some similarities, however, in a few architectural constructs.

Hope this helps?

    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!
