ScaleIO software no longer available for download

I saw an article in The Register that Dell EMC will discontinue the software-only version of ScaleIO and you can only get it if you buy it together with hardware (VxRack Flex). Today I tried searching Dell EMC website for ScaleIO downloads but all the links redirected to Dell EMC’s Converged Infrastructure homepage. Seems Dell EMC has removed the possibility download ScaleIO from their website.

ScaleIO is a software-defined storage product. It converts direct-attached storage into shared block storage over LAN.

  1. I am incredibly sad about this. I’ve built 8-node infiniband cluster in the basement to poke around, had fun with half million IOPS beast so I can advise clients on how to tune it for SQL server and stuff….had great hope for ScaleIO but DELL kinda killed it.
