Last year, Calvin Zito did a good overview on VMware Virtual Volumes or vVols.
This is game changing in my opinion, this essentially means the virtual machines will be able to leverage the 3PAR for ANY operation – when you throw an ASIC in the mix and our wide striping and you will have a solution that will simply leave the competition for dead in my opinion. Cloud Computing and time to market to provision or to complete day-to-day tasks will become unreal.
At the moment, this is still in development mode so I am limited to what I am allowed to share, but stay tuned folks – seriously this is going to rock.
