vExpert Weekly Digest – March 6th 2014 – And Then God Created VSAN Edition

3-6-2014 11-27-59 AMNew edition up and ready to roll, so go check it out.

Today marks the launch of VSAN, and it looks like by all accounts its going to be a very interesting year from a server and storage perspective. Obviously I work in a space where converged infrastructure plays a part in how storage is created and provisioned in the datacenter. In my view VSAN will be a great product for some organizations but not all and really that’s what most product are. They have their fit and niche that they address best, and some will be a better fit than others. With that said, I think its probably the most relevant announcement to come out of ¬†VMware in the last two years. Hats off to the guys running the VSAN product and marketing group, they have done a great job at priming the pump and setting up expectations. The only thing missing from today’s announcement was the pricing, once again, good marketing.
