ISILON is a (very) good scale-out solution and EMC has done a good move buying it. without considering the cost, weighting near 2.2B$, I’m sure EMC will do very well in this market (IMHO, this is the future). My only concern go to the Celerra Offering: will be the two products integrated? Will Celerra die? it’s too early to imagine a roadmap but I’m sure that customers will ask for it very soon.
Instead of writing a post I prefer to attach a bunch of links about the first impressions from analysts, bloggers and journalists. Enjoy!
