EMC gets into Server Vendor Knickers with ScaleIO Acquisition

EMC bought ScaleIO last week for an undisclosed price. What is EMC doing with flash in the server? Didn’t they already do a deal with Virident and others for PCIe flash products recently? And, of course, they have already announced the all-flash array, based on the XtremIO acquisition. How many flash products do they want to offer? And what is EMC’s Flash Division doing buying a product that works with both flash and HDDs? These are all good questions that deserve good answers. Here is the way I see it.

A new gen for NexGen?

NexGen was one of the first real flash/hybrid with QoS storage solutions, and it leveraged PCIe flash (i.e. Fusion-IO cards) to great effect. Which we suppose had something to do with why Fusion-IO bought them up a couple of years ago. But whatever plans were in the works were likely messed up when SanDisk in-turn bought Fusion-IO because we haven't heard form NexGen folks in awhile - not a good sign for a storage solution. Well, SanDisk has now spun NexGen back out on its own. While it may be sink or swim time for the NexGen team, we think it's a good opportunity for all involved.
