SearchStorage.com just published an interview with Symantec CEO about the new Veritas Virtual Infrastructure platform launched Wednesday.
The interviewer mentions an interesting rumor:
SearchStorage: There is talk that VMware might be looking to replace VMFS with a different clustered file system. Is Symantec working with them on that?
Thompson: If they’re looking for that, we’re all ears.
If true this will imply a major change in the VMware strategy and its relationship with storage vendors.
