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.
While our Dell EMC HPC team spends this busy week meeting with countless customers, partners and fellow industry leaders at SC16, I think back to our participation at SC15 last year and how much we’ve accomplished in one lightning fast year.
At last year’s annual HPC industry conference, we said we were going to disrupt, democratize and drive industry differentiation in a way that takes what we’ve learned from the most sophisticated research institutions and government agency supercomputers, and making it easier for a broader set of organizations and businesses to benefit and transform from HPC systems in this digital world.
Based on that declaration, we have significantly grown our business. In fact, leading HPC market firm Intersect360 Research just declared that Dell EMC holds THE #1 position in total HPC revenue share heading into 2017.
Today we announced the inclusion of Dell EMC PowerEdge servers into our hyper-converged infrastructure portfolio (HCI). Incorporating the world’s number one server platform into our already market leading portfolio is testament to our vision of Dell EMC being stronger, and better together. We have used the combined power of the two companies to vertically integrate all the critical ingredients of the hyper-converged infrastructure stack, from hyper-converged software to the latest innovations in x86 hardware in order to deliver increased choice, wider use cases, lower entry price points, and improved all-flash economics for our customers. There could be no better validation of how Dell EMC is helping customers move forward by incorporating the technology they want and need to become more agile, flexible and competitive.
While we’ve been busy working with our customers to modernize their data centers, we’ve also been busy modernizing EMC World, preparing to make 2016 the best event to date! This year we’re delivering an exciting lineup of educational tracks, sessions, speakers, and events to help turn plans into actions. In addition, we will be setting the vision for the new company we will become in combination with Dell.
The theme of our 16th annual EMC World is Modernize and we can’t wait to join customers, partners, media and analysts over an exciting four days in Las Vegas.

IT decision makers are increasingly asking the simple question, “Why build what you can buy?” as they seek to modernize data center environments. For many, this means a shift of some workloads to public cloud offerings, and a thoughtful IT transformation path for on-premise infrastructure. With a broad portfolio of converged and hyper-converged infrastructure platforms – VCE Vblock, VxBlock and VxRack Systems, and VxRail Appliances – EMC enables customers to optimize a hybrid cloud to achieve better business outcomes. Today I am pleased to announce the availability of a new study conducted by Forrester Consulting, commissioned by VCE, the Converged Platforms Division of EMC. This study provides insight on how customers can evaluate converged or hyper-converged infrastructure from financial and business perspectives.
