I saw them talk about Iomega’s ix2, and how it was HCL certified. ( http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?action=search&deviceCategory=san&productId=1&keyBasic=iomega&maxDisplayRows=50&key=&release=-1&datePosted=-1 )
I thought this was interesting, as it indicates that you could get a very low cost VMware supported NAS device for under $500.
From VMware’s HCL.
Here is EMC’s Press Release on the device.
I Would love to hear if anyone has tried this device on ESX or ESXi, and what type of results they have gotten.
