Is VMware looking to replace VMFS? 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.
