Two good articles were published today. The first, from ZD Net, is titled, Enterprise tech vendors: Sizing up the next gen field. The article talks about the upcoming reshuffling of the enterprise stack. While tech buyers named VMware, Cisco and Microsoft as the three most important vendors over the next three years, EMC was ranked second to last.
Nutanix got a mention, along with “Pure Storage and/or Tintri” as one of the “key vendors that are likely to get some play as the next-gen tech pecking order forms in the next two to three years.”
The second article worth reading is Top technological trends hitting the datacenter soon in SearchDataCenter. Slide #3 is titled, “Web-scale IT evolves data centers”. While the slide disappointingly doesn’t discuss web-scale converged infrastructure, it does highlight the importance of adopting cloud-like technologies to the datacenter.
