SAP is familiar territory for EMC, as proven by the recent IDC Storage Users Demand Study, which named EMC #1 in storage for major applications, including SAP. And because we’re never one to rest on our laurels, I’m proud to announce that our revolutionary new VMAX3 is now certified for the SAP HANA Tailored Data Center Integration (TDI) solution, supporting up to 104 HANA nodes in a single VMAX.
Working with SAP to Build the Next Generation Analytics and ERP Platform
A founding member of the HPI FutureSoc Lab, EMC has been involved in this innovation hub from the early beginnings. SAP HANA was created with the goal to empower real-time decision making by moving the database in memory and improving query performance by 100-1000x.
Today, EMC is announcing a new version its Avamar Virtual Edition, which integrates with Microsoft Azure and can help make those first steps to the cloud just a little bit easier for users.
“The cloud– it’s all fun and games until somebody loses a job.” – IT administrator at a large financial institution.
IT teams struggle with finding the right first step to the cloud. Management tells them to “buy some cloud for data protection,” without specifying which cloud, how to protect the data, or what workload to move. Unfortunately, some teams make their best guess… and guess wrong. What should you do?
It’s no secret that the influx of mobile devices and cloud-based technologies have created an explosive growth of enterprise content, as well as multiple silos of content across numerous content repositories and applications. However, the real challenge is empowering the workforce to deliver mobile access across all the different content via data stores without jeopardizing security, violating governance or requiring mobile users to learn/work in different user interfaces.

EMC has been recognized as a “Leader” in the 2014 Gartner Magic Quadrant for General Purpose Disk Array Storage. We believe this means that we’re effectively executing against our vision today, and well prepared for tomorrow.
The state of today’s disk array market is highly competitive, but EMC maintains its leadership due to heavy investment in our vision and close iteration with our customers. With the pace of innovation accelerating across a wide variety of industries it is crucial for storage infrastructure to enable growth within these industries by supporting existing workloads as well as new and emerging workloads.
EMC recently acquired Spanning Cloud Apps as part of an overall goal to protect all data, whether it lives on-premises, in the cloud, or somewhere in between. Since 2010, Spanning has provided cloud backup for SaaS applications like Google Apps and Salesforce, and now Spanning will be offering data protection for Microsoft’s rapidly growing cloud platform, Office 365. The product is available through an exclusive beta program and we expect it to be generally available in the first half of 2015.
Office 365 makes it easy to work anywhere on any device and to facilitate real-time collaboration. This has made Office 365 an attractive prospect for companies looking to harness the benefits of the cloud without starting from scratch. According to EMC’s recent Global Data Protection Index report, 30% of all primary data is now located in cloud applications like Office 365.
