EMC Sets Sights On Having #1 HCIA Offering – VCE VxRail Positioned as a “Strong Performer” in Forrester Wave Report

Gil Shneorson

Vice President and General manager, VxRail, VCE, the EMC Converged Platforms Division

When EMC launched the VCE VxRail Appliance Family I spoke to journalists, analysts and customers passionately about how this turnkey hyper-converged infrastructure appliance (HCIA) would extend and simplify VMware environments. Today, five months later and with sales of 1700 nodes — which translates to 25000 cores, 400TB RAM and 16PB of storage — in more than 90 countries, I am even more confident that we will have the #1 HCIA offering sooner than later.  When I meet with customers and potential customers, that’s when I truly experience their enthusiastic response to VxRail Appliances. They’re amazed by all the ways VxRail Appliances can help achieve their IT and business outcomes. Examples include Convergys, Dimension Data, Fujifilm Medical Systems, and Land Rover BAR.
