Another debated presentation by Cisco Engineer Chris Naddeo. Though the title of the presentation is quite Secure, the proposed model in the presentation seems to be very insecured. Please listen to the attached video, quite interesting.
This was surely the most debated discussion – presentation at the GestaltIT Tech Field Day 2010 in Boston, MA. Both the rock stars from the VCE team (Scott Lowe and Ed Saipetch) did the presentation and did an amazing job presenting on this topic.
Though I see a lot of value with the whole concept of VBlocks (VCE) towards the journey to the private cloud and means to compete with the Oracle’s, Dell’s, IBM’s and HP’s of the world, many in the crowd did not buy into this and thought was more of a marketing package without the necessary meat in it….
I am composing a post on VCE – Vblocks for release later this week, where will highlight many pros and cons of this technology based on what we heard and where we see the Vblocks architecture going.
Asked this same question to both Cisco and EMC during the UCS and VBlocks presentation as to how many customers are running UCS and VBlocks in production environments today, unfortunately got no answers. Three large customers I know of today, are practically using it in pre-production / test / development environments.
Here is the reaction from twitterville during and after this presentation.
