Hello VMworld 2009 Infrastructure – Cisco UCS and EMC V-Max
Chad’s post title indicates the VMworld 2009 datacenters are using EMC’s Symmetrix V-Max for storage.
Some links for EMC V-Max

On Run-Virtual.com, Richard provides some additional details about the VMworld servers:
“This year there will be 3 ‘datacenters’ at the event where VMware is placing all its kit to support all the hands-on labs, email stations, booths, etc. The biggest datacenter is showing 16 Racks with each 4 Cisco UCS blade chasis, with each 8 blades = 512 Blades! WOW!!”
Looks like the bottom of the main escalators at the Moscone Center will be a great spot to get warm if needed!
