Oracle Open World is an important time of year for Oracle customers to learn about everything Oracle. This year’s buzz is heavily focused on cloud. What is often overlooked is not all the cool tech, but how it will impact IT peoples’ day-jobs.
Let's talk about your consulting and IT service needs.

You wouldn’t drive a racecar without a helmet and you shouldn’t buy an all-flash array without data protection. Organizations usually want flash to accelerate workloads and to support workloads that sometimes require hundreds of thousands of IOPS with sub-millisecond latency. But most traditional backup can’t meet the performance or efficiency demands of mission-critical applications on flash. An all-flash array demands protection without compromise with the performance to meet strict SLAs – including backup windows, RPO and recovery time. Also, the efficiency of flash storage arrays and the applications stored on them should not be impacted by protection. That’s why today we’re excited to announce EMC ProtectPoint for XtremIO – a flash-optimized data protection solution – providing backup directly from EMC XtremIO all-flash arrays to EMC Data Domain protection storage systems.
This week at Oracle OpenWorld, DBAs, data center admins and application owners are flocking into sessions for new insights on ways to get more business value out of their Oracle applications and databases. Unfortunately, missing from the agenda this year are specific sessions on database sprawl and how to manage it. That is why we feel there’s no better time to take the wraps off a unique, killer feature built into EMC XtremIO all-flash arrays that, until now, hasn’t been widely promoted. XtremIO is the first all-flash array (AFA) product to offer in-memory copy data management (CDM) at the storage layer. We call it integrated Copy Data Management (iCDM), and it’s baked into XtremIO’s core architecture.
Vince Lombardi, widely considered the greatest American football coach of all time, said, “Leaders are made; they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.”
This rang true as I was looking back at the 2015 analyst firm reporting season for the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) market, which has reached its culmination with the recent release of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management. Gartner has once again placed EMC in the Leader quadrant of its report.
The next wave of IT is upon us and it’s transforming everything in its path – how customers buy, build, consume, operate, and manage IT. EMC has started down the path of Gartner’s projection that the “3rd Platform” will drive nearly all IT growth over the next 20 years. Everything is being done differently, including how EMC is addressing this tectonic shift. A core component of this is EMC’s commitment and approach to Open Source and its focus on OpenStack.

EMC is participating in its fourth consecutive OpenStack Summit this week in Tokyo. EMC’s investments in acquiring Cloud leaders (Cloudscaling, Maginatics, and Spanning) combined with closely engaging key industry leaders, and continued community contributions have resulted in a rich set of OpenStack products, solutions, and services – all tailored to provide choice, simplicity, and flexibility at affordable costs.
