Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
Designed for v-curious (virtualization-curious) users, the new configurations link VMware's ESX and/or ESXi hypervisors with Iomega's 1TB and 2TB storage boxes for the first time. VMware made the announcement at its VMWorld Europe 2009 expo and conference in Cannes.
VMware and Iomega, cousins to each other under mothership EMC, co-launched a new shared-storage system Feb. 24 for small businesses and remote corporate offices and/or workgroups.
The new configurations link VMware's ESX and/or ESXi hypervisors with Iomega's newest 1TB and 2TB spinning-disk storage systems for the first time.
The new configurations, which will be sold through the Iomega channels and the EMC Velocity program, are designed for "virtualization-curious" SMBs and midrange companies, as well as remote offices of larger corporations, Huberman said.
