Transforming Formula 1—Why Lotus F1 Team Is Partnering With EMC

I’ve been involved in Formula 1 Racing since 2010. There’s nothing more exhilarating that the start of a Grand Prix… the revving of engines, the strategy and science behind each race, the necessity for precision, the flawless choreography of today’s modern pit stop and, of course, the sleek elegance and aerodynamics of the cars’ bodywork. Formula 1 is about precision, speed, efficiency, and leaving absolutely no room for error.


In 2014, the sport is undergoing the most disruptive rule changes in its history. New mandates include smaller engines—a move from V-8 engines to “greener” 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 engines. In other words, Lotus F1 Team needs to redesign everything to be smaller and more efficient—yet equally powerful.  These rules require we leverage every single bit of intelligence we have in order to identify and uncover new opportunities for design breakthroughs.

“The partnership between EMC and Lotus F1 Team provides us the IT technology we need to become world champion.”  Patrick Louis, CEO of Lotus F1 Team, on today’s announcement of a technology partnership including EMC, VCE and Lotus F1 Team.

Formula One racing remains on the rise as a true global sporting phenomenon. Its appeal draws millions across the world who marvel at its speed, precision, efficiency and razor-thin tolerance for error. These characteristics define the sport itself; they also define the technology that stands behind it. Enter EMC and VCE.

Formula One racing is in the midst of the most transformative and disruptive series of rules changes in the sport’s history. These changes introduce radical disruption and equally radical opportunity. The winning teams will be those that adapt by transforming themselves and emerging as the most adept at generating competitive advantage through technology.


VSPEX Says Hello to Continuous Availability, Tells Complexity to Take a Hike (Again)

Chad Dunn

Senior Director, VSPEX Product Management at EMC

We’re always keeping our ear to the ground over here at VSPEX HQ — and by this I mean we keep a very strong and open dialogue with EMC’s VSPEX-enabled channel partners.  They’ve been telling us lately that their customers are becoming interested in moving from high availability environments to Continuously Available environments for their mission-critical applications. Downtime means SLAs aren’t met, and that can mean lost revenue…and while high availability is good, Continuous Availability is better. But that means two different infrastructures are needed, maybe in two different data centers, both active, completely synchronized. There is effectively a zero RPO and RTO: Continuous Availability.  The new VSPEX with EMC VPLEX (say that three times fast) that we’re announcing today does just this.



VMAX, VPLEX, and RecoverPoint — Driving More Trust for Mission-Critical Data Centers

Peter C. Conway

VP and COO, Product Operations & Marketing, Enterprise Storage Group at EMC

As we finalize preparations for EMC World 2013 starting next Monday in Las Vegas, we cap an intense year of innovation at EMC’s Enterprise Storage Division by launching new VMAX and VPLEX features, with a powerful new RecoverPoint 4.0 (see my separate Pulse post).

Storage launches traditionally focus on bigger, faster, and the latest whizbang technology. In the past 12 months we have certainly announced faster VMAX platforms (twice), the biggest Tier 1 array (VMAX 40K) and the game-changing VMAX Cloud Edition.

But there’s another important area we’ve been working on: TRUST. For mission-critical storage, big and fast are not enough. Customers need Tier 1 Reliability with >99.999% uptime plus protection against disasters and data corruption. They want continuous availability and predictable, reliable, performance.
