Dell VRTX — A Nice Package for SMBs, Remote Offices (SiliconANGLE)
Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL) has introduced a nice converged system for the SMB and remote office marketplaces in the VRTX, writes Wikibon Analyst, Founder, and Managing Consultant of the 1610 Group, and former CIO Scott Lowe in his latest Wikibon Alert. The VRTX is unusual in its size — it is limited to four servers and 48 TB of storage. “And that’s it,” he writes. “There is no ‘expansion pack’ or ‘scalability cable’ that magically expands the VRTX beyond these walls.” Physically it is a small box that can fit under a desk or in a corner of the otherwise empty office or closet that serves as the data center for many SMBs and remote offices.
