AX4-5


I’m typically in the position of designing storage solutions for external customers based upon established protocols and best practices here at EMC.  We design based on our work with Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, etc. and the solutions development that happens with these partners.  It’s definitely an exciting challenge to take a customer’s needs and wrap them into a solution set that allows for performance, capacity, and future growth.  What’s even more exciting, however, is getting the chance to design and implement a storage solution for an internal “customer.”  I figured this would be a good chance to lay out the work that goes on in designing a storage solution coupled with a VMware host solution as well.

I’ll break this journey into several parts and include the appropriate Visios (as permitted).  So, without further ado, let’s get started!!!

May 27, 2008

This is the second edition of the same post. Evidently, WordPress doesn’t like it when I fat-finger in Firefox 3.0 Beta 5. Grrrrr…..
So, what is “Search Term Tuesday” (or any other day of the week, even)? The principle of it is this: grab some of the focused searches out there that land on […]

Why the AX4-5 matters….

April 25, 2008

In my previous post, I discussed the reasons why EMC needed to spent a little more quality time with the SMB market at large. Today, in the course of several back-to-back design calls with various level SMB customers, I was struck by a couple of things.
