Sun: Our virtualization outclasses VMware

The mainframe battle begins...


Of course, Sun isn’t the only vendor with converged server/storage on its mind. IBM just released a new BladeCenter S system, a six-bladed system with on-board storage, which in itself was a response to HP’s c3000 BladeSystem.

But all three of these heavyweights might want to keep an eye on tiny Verari Systems, which recently introduced the SB5255 DataServer that combines a dual-quad Xeon 5300-based server with a pair of disk blades that top out at 24 TB of storage. GRIDToday says the company’s BladeRack 2 platform then holds up to 22 DataServers delivering 176 processor cores and more than half a petabyte of storage.

So far, server/storage convergence has largely been seen as a quick solution for small businesses. But with numbers like those, it’s hard to see why top-tier enterprise wouldn’t be interested.
