As Strata + Hadoop World kicks off in San Jose this week, the Dell EMC team will be there in full force. In addition to our long history supporting Cloudera Hadoop with Dell EMC solutions, we’re also broadening our support with a new, open-standards based Dell EMC Ready Bundle for Hortonworks Hadoop offering.
There is clearly growing interest in this area, but during my five years managing Hadoop products for Dell EMC, I frequently hear prospective customers say, “I understand the value of Hadoop, but I don’t know where to start.” They know Hadoop is an innovative technology that offers unique opportunities as a foundation for capitalizing on the untapped values of big data; however, customers say that one or more of the following blockers are getting in the way of a successful project launch:
We don’t have the skill set in my organization to pull it off
We’ve spent a lot of time and effort on the front-end work and don’t have much to show for it
We’re not sure what else we are going to need beside HDFS and MapReduce
Communications Service Providers (CSPs) must adapt to a rapidly changing digital world. And many seek an architectural change away from proprietary and towards open systems to do so. Dell EMC has been leading the Open Networking charge, enabling this strategic shift by providing a path to greater service agility combined with break-through economics.
ACG Research published a report today validating a new breed of infrastructure rollouts and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) modernization projects.
Today, Dell EMC VxRail Appliance is celebrating its first anniversary in the market. Since the initial launch, we’ve sold 8,000 VxRail nodes to customers in 78 countries. This makes VxRail the industry’s most rapidly adopted hyper-converged infrastructure appliance.
I’m pleased to announce that Dell EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud is now available on VxRail. That’s right. Our industry leading, turnkey hybrid cloud platform is now available on the only HCI appliance jointly developed with VMware and specifically optimized for VMware environments.
On the heels of completing its historic merger as well as a successful Dell EMC World event held last week in Austin, Dell EMC is breaking records in Barcelona. With its largest show presence to date, Dell EMC is showcasing its unrivaled collection of products and solutions for OpenStack customers.
As a premier sponsor of this event, Dell EMC will spotlight its commitment to the OpenStack community with a suite of offerings tailored to meet customers wherever they are on their OpenStack journey and its strong partner ecosystem. These will be showcased in multiple breakout sessions and product demonstrations.
Big data analytics powers new possibilities for businesses of all kinds, which is why Dell EMC is announcing the Analytic Insights Module. We’re helping customers break down the barriers they often experience between the business and IT to help both sides work better together, while providing the tools needed to achieve business outcomes faster and more efficiently.
