Having reached the rank of second-degree black belt in Shukokai Karate, I’m acutely aware that martial arts excellence requires an all-in commitment by students to master strength, flexibility, discipline and harmony across both body and mind. Like any worthwhile training, students benefit greatly from a teacher, a sensei, to impart experience, skill and wisdom. The same holds true in software and application development. Pupils learn from masters and advance to create new innovations through the art of code writing. It is through this timeless method that EMC is helping develop the next generation of coding black belts and sensei through the opening of the first Cloud Foundry “Dojo”. For the uninitiated, dojo means “the place of the way” and is a word commonly used to describe a martial arts training facility.
Brian Gallagher takes Dojo training seriously, even in the data center! @BGallagher32 #CloudFoundry #epicsplits
Just a few months ago, EMC, Cisco and VCE announced that VCE will become an EMC business with the charter to focus on simplifying the deployment of hybrid clouds, including a full range of converged infrastructure offerings for enterprises and service providers. Today, VCE took another step to advance simplicity for customers as it launches a new architecture and solutions aimed to take it to new heights.
Simplicity.Next represents the next stage in VCE’s evolution, offering more hyper and hybrid innovation, more flexibility, more productivity, and the power to deliver more of what customers need most — simplicity, scalability and efficiency.
Truth be told, EMC has had a different attitude about IP storage networks than FC SANs. Although we have tested FC SAN technologies for 15+ years, like the rest of the industry, we assumed IP ‘just works’. For the most part that statement is true. Now we have a new perspective. Growth in IP storage technologies is putting old ideas to the test. Traditional shared networks weren’t designed for today’s IP storage workloads.
To help our customers design and deploy high-performance, highly-available and scalable Enterprise Hybrid Clouds, EMC is introducing the new Connectrix VDX-6740B IP Storage Switch. With this introduction, EMC now offers an additional option for customers to enhance their IP storage experience for systems, including EMC’s Data Domain, Isilon, VMAX, VNX and XtremIO.
EMC is paving the way to the 3rd Platform of computing by focusing on the growing momentum in the OpenStack market. Recently IDC projected that by 2020, 3rd platform applications will be driving nearly 100% of IT growth, with many new workloads running on and leveraging Open Source technologies. As a result, we are seeing tremendous growth in OpenStack occurring in the Private and Hybrid Cloud spaces. There are several reasons for this including tangible customer benefits like flexibility, modularity, and reduced costs – all backed by a broad community.
EMC is committed to helping customers with their OpenStack deployments and is increasing investments in OpenStack through two exciting new offerings – an OpenStack Reference Architecture Program and an EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud OpenStack® Edition.
Most IT organizations today are embracing capabilities in the public cloud, and building their own private cloud. This combination of public and private capabilities IS a hybrid cloud and it’s where leading IT organizations are going so they can fully redefine themselves, delivering today’s applications at the lowest possible cost and enabling new applications and data-driven insights to differentiate their business.
Unfortunately, building a hybrid cloud has not been easy for many organizations. Even building an on-premises private cloud with virtualized infrastructure, automation and self-service can become a project that fails to deliver on the vision, despite investing millions of dollars and thousands of personnel hours. If you were around for an ERP implementation in the late 90’s this probably sounds familiar.
