Oh, "composable". I thought it said "compostable"... instead of upgrading, just toss it out back with yesterday's veggies.
After some engineering soul searching, Dell EMC has finally arrived late to the composable system market with a box comprised of OME-M software and an MX7000 chassis for servers, storage and networking. This long-awaited tech joins HPE's pioneering Synergy – mooted in late 2015 – along with competing systems from DriveScale, …

I have to admit that The Cloud (TM) has been good for one thing
It seems clear that all this cloudy stuff has pushed server management into the stratosphere.
That has to be a good thing.
It has also created entirely new failure situations, which vendors are learning to cope with. A bad thing, but overall probably good in the long run - it'll just cost millions of companies tens or hundreds of millions of dollars in lost sales or lost data, but hey, you can't make an omlette without breaking a few eggs, right ?

It's basically a catch up play for EMC to compete against UCS. Lot of good in the platform, but as a network company Cisco shines in the unified fabric dept. The MX FC and Ethernet connectivity is separate all the way down to the sleds (blades). In a multi-chassis configuration, every chassis must have FC connectivity as opposed to only the FI pair with UCS. Given the drive density is really good on these sleds I expect vxRail to be layed down on it which would be interesting.
