vBlock: a VMware, EMC & Cisco alliance

The 3 IT giants are forming a shared-equity company named Acadia which will handle the new vBlock concept.

What is vBlock?
vBlock is the name they gave to a cloud producing computing system which integrates their respective hardware and software.

so the "vBlocks" are preintegrated, preconfigured computing systems consisting of networkware from Cisco, storage/security/system management from EMC, and virtualization software from VMware.

These cloud computing systems will produce environments ranging from hundreds of VM's to more than 6000 VM's.
Of course, as always, it's the budget you are willing to spend that will size up your new vBlock environment, but you can imaging prices for the 'cheapest' vBlocks will start at 100k.
