EMC’s Project Liberty — Hints of Things to Come?

Dave Henry of GeekFluent comments:

Today, in addition to announcing a new model VNXe, EMC announced their Project Liberty as part of the pre-EMC World build-up.

What’s Project Liberty? EMC is calling it a “virtualized storage software technology based on VNX”.

What does that mean? Project Liberty is essentially a virtual appliance version of EMC’s VNX.

But, wait, I can hear you thinking this one:

Doesn’t EMC already make a VNX virtual appliance available?

Yes. Yes, they do.

So what’s the big deal?

For me, the big deal is two-fold.

Virtualized appliances are the key for existing vendors to push into the SDN space. Having a virtual storage appliance will shift the game significantly. Read on for Dave’s take on EMC’s upcoming offering.
