What do you think of EMC VMAX?

PART I EMC has announced an upgrade, refresh or new version of their previously announced Virtual matrix (VMAX) 10,000 (10K), part of the VMAX family of enterprise class storage systems formerly known as DMX (Direct Matrix) and Symmetrix. I will get back to more coverage on the VMAX 10K and other EMC enhancements in a few moments in part two and three of this series.

We used to use CLARiiON then VNX arrays. VMAX is more scalable and has better performance (gives more IOPS, more front end ports...)
