62 is the number of the vblocks (CISCO+EMC+VMWARE preconfigured and integrated stacks) customers world wide!
To me, 62, is a very (very) little number, what do you think?
My concerns aren’t about the stack itself and his quality but on the customers perception: are we sure that customers want integrated stacks? Probably customers like end-to-end certified solutions and CISCO+VMWARE+EMC is one of these but they refuse to have a single vendor to avoid the lock-in!
I’m sure that there are many more customers than those 62 who buy certified and integrated VMware+EMC+CISCO stacks but not vBlocks.
*This figure of course is not coming from an official press release but from a Tweet coming from @vStewedthat I saw today on my Twitter stream.
