Stirring The Pot

Chuck Hollis, chief strategist for VMware's storage and availability business, is once again stirring things up with Nutanix, the hyper-converged startup that's trying to take a bite out of its data center business.

In a series of blog posts earlier this month, Hollis published details of head-to-head performance testing VMware conducted recently comparing its VSAN storage virtualization technology and the storage technology Nutanix uses in its hyper-converged offering.

According to VMware's data, VSAN is cheaper, better-performing and better-equipped to handle heavy workloads than Nutanix's technology,Hollis said in the blog posts.

Hollis said he's not sharing this information to antagonize Nutanix, and merely wishes to help customers make informed decisions. And yet, his flurry of blog posts -- two of which were posted during Nutanix's user conference in Miami last week -- show that the startup is very much in VMware's head these days.

Here are six key points Hollis raised in the blog posts. (Nutanix declined to comment on the points Hollis raised.)
