back to article NetApp and Fujitsu NFLEX: More details emerge about European HCI tryst

More details have emerged about the Fujitsu NetApp NFLEX converged system and about Fujitsu's HCI strategy, which might preclude it selling the NetApp HCI. Fujitsu has agreed it has no deal planned in that direction. NFLEX is a converged infrastructure (CI) system with pre-integrated and tested Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers, …

      It's challenging if you can't copy-paste Nutanix press releases ...

    Indeed, the only thing anyone can think more boring than a new Converged Infrastructure is...

    ...a Converged Infrastructure based on Fujitsu!

    OMG: what's next on their roadmap? An HCI solution aimed for 2025?

      Boring or not boring - that‘s not the question. It is about the fitting scalability model. If your usage scenario requires no synchronous scalability of storage capacity and compute power, then converged IT is the better choice. If both goes hand in hand then HCI makes a lot of sense. Using hyperconverged for the hype‘s sake mabe the reason why it‘s called HYPErconverged. Ha,ha !

      Being boringly reliable is also not a bad thing.

      Yours truly, Frank from Fujitsu

      Fujitsu is huge outside the US. There is more to the world than commodity pizza boxes and Cisco UCS. Its actually a very smart move to partner with a large vendor in Asia and EMEA. NetApp is making some seriously smart moves. This forum is used to bashing them for their period of stagnation. They are coming out the other side. They are coming for your lunch.. and they are going to get it if they keep focused, remain disciplined and continue to solve customer problems...

    Netapp does not offer HCI, how much they try to spin it that way. Its complete separation of storage an compute. So together with Fujitsu its nothing more than a glorified Flexpod.

    The only serious play is the Nutanix solution on Fujitsu's servers, with the VSAN ready nodes a distant second.

    NetApp is getting more desperate by the day.
