Eleven Years Strong: EMC Strengthens Object Strategy with New Atmos Compliance, Security and Flexibility Options

Mark O'Connell

Atmos Chief Technology Officer at EMC

Object storage is the standard for managing today’s explosive growth in unstructured content.  EMC knows this best – pioneering object storage over a decade ago with the release of EMC Centera, the enduring leader in compliance archiving. In 2008, EMC broadened its portfolio in object storage with the introduction of EMC Atmos — an industry leader for cloud storage and next-generation Web, mobile and REST-based applications. However, object storage is more than just scalable storage. What truly differentiates object storage is that its core strengths of simplicity, scalability and efficiency can be optimized for specific use cases – and that’s exactly what today’s Atmos announcement brings to the table.

Gartner Recognizes EMC as #1 NAS and Unified Storage, Worldwide Market Leader in 2012

Eric Herzog

SVP, Product Management and Product Marketing, Unified Storage Division at EMC

In March 2013 Jeremy Burton wrote about Gartner’s release of an all-new “General Purpose Disk Array” Magic Quadrant. It took a new, consolidated view of vendors’ storage lines— evaluating mid-range storage, scale-out NAS, and enterprise storage offerings holistically.  For EMC, that means the VNX, Isilon, and VMAX solutions. EMC was positioned in the leaders quadrant.

Gartner, again, named EMC the leader in storage market share — achieving the #1 in unified (with VNX unified solutions) and #1 in NAS (with VNX and Isilon).

Lafarge Cuts Costs to Cement Strategy for Growth

EMC Pulse

When the global economy hit the skids a few years ago, many companies responded instinctually: aggressively and sometimes haphazardly slashing expenses. Looking back, however, drastic and across-the-board financial pruning may not have been the right move.  Organizations that invested through the downturn in order to create longer-term efficiencies and drive innovation have emerged fiscally stronger and in better position for continued growth.

Lafarge is a perfect example of such a company. With business units in 64 countries and €15.8 billion ($20.3B) in sales, the company is a worldwide leader in building materials — principally cement, aggregates and concrete.

VSPEX Sprouts Fresh Exotic Produce, And So Much More

Jen Sorenson

To get the tastiest, healthiest produce, it’s imperative that fruits and vegetables arrive at their final destination without delay. As one of the UK’s largest distributors of fresh produce, Minor, Weir & Willis (MWW) knows this like no other. So when Rajinder Gill, Chief Financial Officer at MWW, concluded that an unreliable IT infrastructure was hampering productivity and efficiency, delay was not an option.

“Every time our system went down, we were forced to process every sales order and every receipt manually. Productivity suffered.” Rajinder told us in a recent interview.

Upon close inspection, MWW concluded that its ERP infrastructure — comprising disparate servers and direct-attached storage that lacked a centralized view of logistics and distribution data — was unreliable and simply could not scale.  As a result, downtime and data duplication were common and business users were making distribution decisions with information that wasn’t always current or consistent across the company.

New Gartner Research Positions EMC in Leaders Quadrant for New General Purpose Disk Array Magic Quadrant

Jeremy Burton

EVP, Product Operations and Marketing at EMC

Over the years, Gartner Magic Quadrants have become iconic in the IT industry. A place where vendors are evaluated together with long-time competitors, as well as smaller up-and-coming startups.

In the storage market, the magic quadrants have traditionally had long-standing, very clearly defined swim lanes – high-end storage in one quadrant, mid-range storage in another, and so on.

For the longest time, this made perfect sense.  After all, why would you compare a heavyweight boxer to a middleweight?  They’re not going to end up in the ring together, so why bother?

But the storage landscape is changing and, to their credit, Gartner has responded with an all-new “General Purpose Disk Array” Magic Quadrant, which was released earlier today.  This new quadrant takes a consolidated view of vendors’ storage lines, evaluating mid-range storage, scale-out NAS, and enterprise storage offerings holistically.  For EMC, that means our VNX, Isilon, and VMAX lines.
