Chuck, Thanks for the great info! Do you know if the VMAX SP includes a Storage On Demand model for hardware and software?

Chuck Hollis

By "on demand", I trust you're talking about a pure OPEX model vs. the more traditional CAPEX one?

The answer is "sort of". We're experimenting with a few SP partners around this. If you're interested, ask your EMC representative.


This is Very interesting,beneficial and the educational process for those people who wants to learn about VMAX SP. Thank you Very much for sharing this one.
