Capellas Talks VCE
Michael Capellas, chairman of VCE, the EMC, Cisco and VMware joint-venture developer of Vblock converged infrastructure solutions, used his time on-stage to introduce the new VCE Vblock Series 700 Model LX system, based on EMC's new entry-level VMAX 10K enterprise-class storage array. It features Cisco UCS blade servers, Nexus networking technology and support for VMware vSphere 5, and it can run over 2,000 simultaneous virtual machines.
VCE is now adding EMC data protection technologies for Vblock backup, recovery, replication, business continuity and data mobility for virtualized environments.
"It shows you the power of what we can do," Capellas said. "We are natively integrated to the road maps of our parents. ... You can adopt new technology through Vblock faster than you can do on your own."
