Hadoop Product Management and Planning at Dell EMC Converged Platforms and Solutions Division

Latest posts by Armando Acosta (see all)

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

Dell EMC’s Rocket Ship in All Flash: Dell EMC Shipped Over an Exabyte of All Flash in 2016 – 2x Share of the Closest Competitor

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]

Dell EMC Helps Service Providers Modernize

SVP Dell EMC Networking, Service Provider and Enterprise Infrastructure at Dell EMC

As traditional enterprises shift investments to enable their Digital Transformation and cloud delivery models, they increasingly rely on modernized, flexible and agile service providers. When I say service providers, I mean all types: communications service providers; cable multiple system operators; hosting/co-location providers; public cloud providers; vertical market cloud specialists; and consumer webtech providers.

To adapt to this shift, most service providers already are embarking on a transformation journey requiring new architectures and technologies. They are building differentiation into how they manage and operate the cloud services sold to their customers and how they interface with upstream services, partners, advertisers and digital content. This change is rich with opportunity.
