EMC Greenplum Data Computing Appliance

So, EMC have rolled their recent Greenplum buy through the marketing department and come up with the 'EMC Greenplum Data Coumputing Appliance'.

The biggest casualty looks like the Greenplum logo, which is now blue...well it is in the marketing email anyway ;-)

There's also plenty of nice content over at Chuck Hollis' blog.

Clearly a man after my own heart: "From a pure technology architecture perspective, the path ahead seems clear: MPP shared-nothing models that scale out in linear fashion that exploit the mainstream of industry standard technology."

Wise words indeed.
