HP hops aboard VMware’s hyper-converged EVO:RAIL bandwagon
The VMworld roadshow has moved to Europe this week, where VMware Inc. has introduced Hewlett-Packard Company and Hitachi Data Systems Ltd. (HDS) as new hardware partner for its hyper-converged EVO:RAIL appliance.
Launched at last month’s VMWorld event in San Francisco, EVO:RAIL was born out of VMware’s Project Mystic, and combines four servers, direct-attached storage, vSphere, VSAN around a discrete package of commodity hardware from its manufacturing partners.
Described as “VMware’s play at mid-market converged infrastructure” by Wikibon analyst Dave Vellante, the EVO:RAIL software allows new virtual machines to be created within minutes of switching on the machine. Other advantages include simple patching, automatic scaling and easy scale out.
