We’re pleased to announce that the latest version of RSA Via Lifecycle and Governance completes the RSA Via portfolio of Smart Identity solutions, giving organizations an end-to-end solution designed to manage user access to resources from the endpoint to the cloud. We have some great new IAM capabilities in store with RSA Via Lifecycle and Governance but before I dive into them, I want to talk about how we’re not just managing identities, we’re helping both to lock down one of the primary attack vectors of advanced threats today and make our customers more secure in the process.
Most non-mainframe IT professionals are surprised when they hear stories about how critical the mainframe still is to running business applications around the world. What really knocks their socks off is when they learn that mainframes – which some consider out of place in IT today – are being heavily relied upon for certain Third Platform workloads. Outside of mainframe operators, few people using enterprise applications today have even a vague idea that mobile applications drive enormous amounts of data back to mainframes, increasing demands on storage as well as pushing the limits of physical tape systems that tie back to mainframes. The link between First Platform infrastructure and Third Platform applications is important to a myriad of enterprise applications.
Today, NetWorker turns 25 years old. To put that in perspective, NetWorker was released a few months before the test of the World Wide Web’s first website! And, NetWorker is not only still relevant, it’s gaining in momentum with new and life-long customers.
We took a quick poll and discovered that 46% of our customers have used NetWorker for 10 or more years. This is an indication of just how many enterprises have partnered with EMC to achieve a transformation of their backup from simple backup-to-tape, to disk-centric backup, to Protection-as-a-Service and now cloud data protection.
Hello from DockerCon! New today, EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) 2.0 is now generally available, breaking new ground in Software-Defined Storage with a range of new features and functionality, designed to improve the user experience. EMC is also making ECS available as a fully containerized download for test and development. ECS now joins ScaleIO, ViPR Controller and CoprHD as free & frictionless software-defined storage downloads.
There is more to software than its processing speed; architecture can now be a key to success. Commodity hardware doesn’t vary much—that’s the point—but storage software differs greatly. The right software architecture and features can transform commodity components into a resilient, exabyte-scale cloud storage platform. The architecture matters—and we’re delivering on that philosophy with ECS 2.0.
