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.
As Guy previously mentioned in his midrange blog, we are fully committed to our SC Series and Unity Systems entry & midrange solutions, and for our customers a big part of our value is in providing them with a common software experience.
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.
Integrated systems based on converged and hyper-converged infrastructure have come a long way in a few short years. There are now instances of these systems spanning everything from appliances designed to be deployed primarily in remote offices with minimal IT intervention to full blown block systems running mission critical workloads in data centers made up of thousands of nodes.
New today: Dell EMC DSSD D5/PowerEdge R730 servers delivers record-breaking performance on benchmark for tick data analytics and delivers third major software release.
Organizations today face many challenges and conflicting priorities including data growth and data variety, supporting an increasing number of users and devices, navigating a fiercely competitive landscape and continuously shrinking budgets. Pressure continues to mount for organizations to use data strategically to improve decision-making and deliver next-generation business services. Enterprise analytics at scale are increasingly becoming a linchpin for organizations to survive and flourish in a data-driven, real-time digital world.
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.
