During 2016, the “Year of All Flash”, Dell EMC shipped more than an Exabyte of all-flash array capacity[i]. As a market and innovation leader in enterprise storage for decades – Dell EMC ironically was considered to be a bit late to the ‘All Flash’ storage market. Today we’re taking share from our competitors and growing revenues faster than the all-flash storage market according to IDC. Dell Technologies’ all-flash revenue growth is 72.1%, versus the 61.2% growth for the overall all-flash storage market[ii].
In fact, this month marks the one-year anniversary of Dell EMC’s VMAX All Flash array. In 2016, we introduced the VMAX 450F and VMAX 850F then the VMAX 250F, inline compression and non-disruptive migration. During this transformative year, the VMAX business grew bookings of VMAX All Flash from 21% in Q1 2016 to approximately 70% in Q3, 2016 with continued progress in Q4.[iii]
Flash is now a standard enterprise storage option in the block world. That’s certainly not news. But did you know that block only represents 20% of all data, and the other 80% is unstructured or file data that doubles every 2-3 years?
Naturally, Dell EMC has a fix for that.
New today, Isilon All-Flash storage (formerly “Project Nitro”) will ignite the Isilon data lake for storing and managing unstructured data in the core data center. With 6X more IOPS, 8X more aggregate throughput, 47% more capacity, the blazing performance of Isilon All-Flash is sure to accelerate demanding and business critical workloads to new levels.
