That's A Lot of Hardware!

Just a quick post today.  As some saw on Twitter yesterday I will be getting my hands on some pretty impressive hardware.  My company has decided to move our customer demo lab to our office and all the gear arrived yesterday.  Here's a few pictures for now but we will be setting all of this up over the next few weeks.  I will be posting some impressions and tips as I go.  With my HP and IBM Blade background I am hoping to write a good bit on the UCS experience.  In addition to the EMC NS-120, I am hoping to integrate our existing EMC NS-960 for some experience with that hardware as well.  Should be interesting!!

Picture #1 - 2x Cisco UCS Chassis each with 4 blades, 2x Cisco 6120 Nexus, 1x Cisco Nexus 5020


Picture #2 - A LOT of NetApp disk shelves (NetApp controller not pictured)


Picture #3 - EMC NS-120 still in the box (but not for long!)

Just curious....with Scott Lowe moving over to EMC, is your role at ePlus changing at all?

That's a good question... that's all I'm gonna say about that right now ;)

How are the twins?
