A closer look at EMC ScaleIO

Thanks to our friends at EMC, I was recently given the chance to attend a session on EMC’s new storage acquisition, ScaleIO. This acquisition generated a lot of interest (and perhaps some confusion) as VMware Virtual SAN product seemed to play in that same storage area. My good friend Chad Sakac over at EMC wrote about this some 6 months ago in his evocatively titled blog post VSAN vs. ScaleIO fight! Chad explains where, in his opinion, each product can be positioned and how EMC/VMware customers have a choice of storage options. His article is definitely worth a read.  I wanted to learn more about the ScaleIO product and share this with you.

Introduction

Boaz Palgi and Erez Webman, two of the original team who founded ScaleIO, delivered the presentation I received from ScaleIO. ScaleIO’s initial research found that many companies who had multiple data centers distributed around the globe are now starting to consolidate into a few mega data-centers. Also, they found that many small to midsized businesses (SMB) do not want to run their own data-centers anymore. They either want to outsource or run their business in hosted/cloud environments. ScaleIO spotted an opportunity to build a converged, scale-out solution that would run both virtual and bare metal on the converged storage & compute tier, and scale to hundreds or thousands of nodes to meet those new customers requirements.
