One year on, the Cisco Systems- and EMC-funded venture, which is focused on integrated computing "stacks" called Vblocks, reports progress to date.
Are we ready to add EMC to a list of comprehensive systems and platform vendors that now includes Dell, HP, IBM, and Oracle/Sun?
IBM has developed and private cloud for its own Business Intelligence consumers. Is it one you want to copy?
EMC and Cisco have Vblocks. HP has Consolidated Infrastructure. Is the world changing for enterprise IT storage professionals?
EMC has acquired Greenplum and is building a Data Computing Products Division around it. Is this move purely opportunistic or part of a grander strategy?
EMC has made VMware an integral part of its story in a dramatic departure from years past.
