Today, NetWorker turns 25 years old. To put that in perspective, NetWorker was released a few months before the test of the World Wide Web’s first website! And, NetWorker is not only still relevant, it’s gaining in momentum with new and life-long customers.
We took a quick poll and discovered that 46% of our customers have used NetWorker for 10 or more years. This is an indication of just how many enterprises have partnered with EMC to achieve a transformation of their backup from simple backup-to-tape, to disk-centric backup, to Protection-as-a-Service and now cloud data protection.
Hello from DockerCon! New today, EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) 2.0 is now generally available, breaking new ground in Software-Defined Storage with a range of new features and functionality, designed to improve the user experience. EMC is also making ECS available as a fully containerized download for test and development. ECS now joins ScaleIO, ViPR Controller and CoprHD as free & frictionless software-defined storage downloads.
There is more to software than its processing speed; architecture can now be a key to success. Commodity hardware doesn’t vary much—that’s the point—but storage software differs greatly. The right software architecture and features can transform commodity components into a resilient, exabyte-scale cloud storage platform. The architecture matters—and we’re delivering on that philosophy with ECS 2.0.
For maritime shipping, profitability makes a ticking sound. When ships aren’t moving, money isn’t being made. That means containers have to move in and out of port quickly, flawlessly and as inexpensively as possible. Today, much of the equipment that moves those containers is automated and robotic, driven by a range of Internet-enabled sensors and other devices. The systems that control all those vehicles and machinery and devices are the Terminal Operating Systems (TOS) that Navis builds.
Speed is critical too. In our case, it’s speed to market.
Every port has a unique fleet of equipment, weather patterns, physical configurations and more. Our job is to simulate those unique environments and then create a TOS build that matches the footprint for each port as quickly as possible; we run those builds all day. My organization builds the IT infrastructure that lets Navis do that.
What a difference a year makes! EMC as a bystander in Atlanta to an Event Sponsor in Paris and today a Premier Sponsor in Vancouver. Crawling, walking, and now running!
This week, EMC is announcing the availability of two new OpenStack solutions as part of the Reference Architecture Program announced last November in Paris. The solutions were built in close collaboration with key partners Canonical and Mirantis in EMC labs then tested, optimized, and certified.
