Whew…It’s time to take a deep breath.  We just completed the largest merger in the history of technology by combining Dell and EMC.  We couldn’t be more enthusiastic about helping our customers take advantage of our better together strategy and we have some exciting news on that front.

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.

Trey Layton

SVP & Chief Technology Officer, Converged Platforms and Solutions Division at Dell EMC

Today, as it did in 2015 and 2014, the Gartner Magic Quadrant report on Integrated Systems clearly positions EMC, now Dell EMC, as a leader in the category because of its combined vision and execution score. We have played a critical role in making it possible to deploy converged (Vblock and VxBlock Systems) and hyper-converged (VxRack Systems and VxRail Appliances) infrastructure throughout the enterprise.

This year marks the beginning of a great relationship between two awesome tech businesses: Dell EMC and Splunk.  We joined forces through a formal strategic alliance that started in February. This alliance enables Dell EMC and its partners to sell Splunk’s industry leading platform. And, it allows Dell EMC unique access to Splunk technical resources for solution design, testing, and validation.  Most importantly, it creates a framework for these two technology powerhouses to collaborate more effectively for customer success.
