There’s been a bit of conversation recently on the intention of EMC to put drivers for their ScaleIO platform into the VMware ESXi hypervisor kernel.

It implied that VMware and EMC were working together to integrate ScaleIO into ESXi. Naturally the discussion turned to ongoing friction and competition between ScaleIO and VMware Virtual SAN.
