It's difficult to think of anything that needs to be improved because it's a good stable system, but paid support is expensive so the cost of operation could be lowered. In the next release, I would like to see a smaller footprint in the data center and have improvements to disk performance.

The user control could be more advanced. They should work to improve this in future releases. I'd like a hypervisor to be added to the solution. Upgrading should be easier. It should just be a click of a button to upload, enter calls or enter systems.

* The infrastructure is converged, but the teams, not so much. It is so complex that the converged infrastructure needs converged management. * While most public clouds are deployed on Linux, there is current no certified Vblock working on KVM hypervisors.

The integration with other vendors' products needs to be looked at. It's not as flexible as we would like it to be.

Currently, there is some uncertainty about the future of the product line with regards to Dell's takeover of EMC. Because VBlock is so closely wrapped around the Cisco Blade converged infrastructure environment, I am concerned that Dell may end the relationship and kill the VBlock line, pushing their other VCE products that can run on Dell servers. Initial indications from VCE were that this was not going to happen, but I am concerned that Dell may not really know what they have taken on when they took over the EMC / VCE / VMware companies.
