EMC brings major new platforms for CIOs

EMC Corporation today announced major new platforms and enhancements for EMC XtremIO, EMC VMAX3, VCE, EMC VNX, EMC Data Domain and EMC Data Protection Suite products.

Since more than 7 billion people will connect to the Internet using 30 billion devices by 2020, the challenge for CIOs is two-fold. First they must start by driving out cost from existing IT without compromising service levels, while secondly using those savings to deliver new, transformative applications optimized for the digital world.

EMC is introducing major updates to its XtremIO all-flash array and the VMAX3 Enterprise Data Service Platform.

VCE is announcing a new family of Hyper-Converged RackScale Systems that enable enterprises to simplify the deployment of next-generation scale-out Mobile, Cloud and distributed Tier 2 applications.

The VxRack System enables customers to start from dozens of servers and scaling to many thousands of servers — tens of petabytes of storage capacity while guaranteeing the highest performance and $/IOPS.

VCE brings its methodology of pre-engineered factory built infrastructure with single call life cycle support to deliver a massively scaled out Hyper-Converged VxRack with the same unmatched VCE customer experience.

EMC is announcing the first fully virtualized EMC VNXe software stack (formerly known as Project Liberty).

The EMC vVNX Community Edition software stack is designed to provide customers with the ability to create test and development environments based on VNXe storage without a dedicated storage hardware system and stand up multiple virtual VNXe instances cost effectively, using industry-standard server hardware.

Additionally for the VNX family, EMC is releasing a new VNXe3200 all-flash variant. The 3 TB VNXe3200 is one of the most affordable unified all flash arrays on the market with a starting price of under $25,000.

Jeremy Burton, president, Products and Marketing, EMC Corp, said: “IT must transform, but a large part of their investment is tied up in legacy infrastructure and applications. EMC is leading our customers in this transformation by helping them optimize today’s data center so they can achieve efficiencies that lower cost and increase service levels.”
