When the VCE coalition first formed in late 2009 their product, the Vblock, was the industry’s first serious attempt at delivering converged IT systems. The first models were the Vblocks 0, 1, and 2, addressing the small, medium, and larger enterprise IT use cases. Over time, these evolved into the Vblock 300 and Vblock 700, relatively high-end computing options. On February 21, 2013 VCE announced the re-addition of smaller Vblock models, Vblock 100 and Vblock 200, once again allowing the product line to cover the small & medium-sized opportunities in the market. It’s been a bit over a month since VCE announced these changes to their product line, and with the products becoming generally available let’s look at some of the technical details, then use those details to make some conclusions about these products.
