This morning, EMC introduced VSPEX: a partner-centric pre-configured and pre-integrated infrastructure stack.
Yes, we're pretty excited.
Some will inevitably classify this announcement as yet another variation on a popular theme in the IT infrastructure marketplace.
I mean, isn't every IT vendor packaging up infrastructure in new ways?
Yes, somewhat true -- but many of us believe that there's plenty of room left for innovation and differentiation in this category.
VSPEX is not only interesting in what it does on its own, but how it nicely fits in to other things EMC is investing in -- like VCE and Vblocks.
