VBlock 0 : Want a Vblock ? Don’t need to support 1000’s of Virtual machines though ?

So, with all the hype of Vblock and VCE, we have marveled at the integration between the 3 vendors of VCE and slick positioning of vBlock…     but..   what if a vBlock 1 or 2 is going to break the bank and you need something scaled down a touch, but with the benefits of single support across the 3 vendor components ?

Now EMC have released the VBlock 0, things are looking more compelling for aspirations to the private cloud, who may not want to invest in vBlock 1 or 2 and geared to support thousands of Virtual Machines.

In the below video, Scott Lowe and Mike Foley from the VCE team  talk through what the vBlock 0 consists of for the techhead.co.uk site

The reference architecture for vBlock 0 can be found here.
