To this day, too many people still get hung up over the word "cloud" -- they dismiss it as merely marketing fluff, or an unpleasant flavor of vendor hype. To each their own, I say.
Collectively, we've thankfully moved beyond debating definitions, and started on the more challenging work of embracing the new models.
But just because the model changes doesn't mean the core requirements change.
Critical IT services still need to be highly available, performant, secure, recoverable, efficient, etc. -- irregardless of whether we're talking about cloud or a more traditional IT delivery model. And that discussion applies to enterprise-class storage as well.
That's the core essence of the new VMAX Cloud Edition.
It still delivers on the core values a VMAX is known for -- but it now fully embraces the newer as-a-service model behind cloud. And I think it's clear proof that an even an older dog can learn some impressive new tricks -- if it's smart enough!
