Dell EMC Recognized by Gartner as a Leader in 2016 Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays… Why This Really Matters

Dell EMC is certainly proud to once again be recognized by Gartner as a leader in the recently published “2016 Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays”, but to look at this MQ in isolation would be missing the forest for the trees.  Instead, it’s important to interpret Dell EMC’s placement in the larger context of our customer’s transformation journey.


Dell EMC and VMware – Better Together for Virtual SAN

As customers move rapidly to realize the benefits of a true software-defined data center, huge numbers of businesses look to VMware-based solutions, and products that offer tight integration and support with VMware. For storage, many VMware users leverage VMware Virtual SAN, a storage feature integrated in vSphere that pools disk space from multiple vSphere hosts and provides administration of a cluster and implementation of storage policies natively via vSphere.

VMware today announced a new VMware Ready for vSAN program to provide customers with the confidence that file services and data protection partner solutions will seamlessly deploy, run and interoperate with Virtual SAN. The goal of the program is to accelerate customer time-to-value by helping them to quickly find a qualified solution partner. Within the program there are two specific focus areas: File Services partners with Virtual SAN, and Data Protection partner solutions for Virtual SAN.


Protection Storage Modernized: Introducing Data Domain Virtual Edition

At EMC, we are focused on delivering data protection everywhere for the modern data center – enabling customers to protect all data no matter where it lives and no matter what happens. Now, we’re continuing to push the boundaries of data protection with the introduction of Data Domain Virtual Edition (DD VE), which uncouples Data Domain hardware from its software platform to deliver industry-leading protection storage in a software-only solution. This will enable Data Domain to address new markets and a variety of deployment options including cloud and hyper-converged solutions.


EMC Recognized as a Clear Leader in Gartner’s 2015 Deduplication Backup Target Appliance Magic Quadrant

For years, industry analysts have recognized Data Domain as a leader for backup deduplication – and, to help ensure this continues, we’ve remained focused on innovation in our products and continuous improvement on delivering a great experience for our customers. Since last year, Gartner has been tracking vendors in its Magic Quadrant for Deduplication Backup Target Appliances and we believe its second report validates our position as the leader in this space.

New EMC SourceOne Goes Global To Help Organizations Drowning In Data

The truth is, most companies are drowning in unstructured data. Industry experts say that unstructured data now accounts for 70 – 80% of all new data growth, requiring a transformational archiving strategy.  Archiving email is a good start, but a truly comprehensive archiving strategy goes beyond email management and addresses critical storage growth challenges presented by all forms of unstructured content, wherever it resides.

Today, EMC is announcing SourceOne 7.1 – an archiving solution capable of spanning multiple geographies with a single archive instance, and new abilities to support global data centers and archive storage.  By dramatically enhancing cloud, application and storage support, the new SourceOne product helps companies to seamlessly manage archives – globally and locally.  SourceOne 7.1 also supports the latest Microsoft software solutions including Exchange 2013, Outlook 2013 and SharePoint 2013.
