EMC’s XtremIO all-flash array has had a blockbuster year by all measures. While celebrating the fact that the XtremIO product line not only leads the industry in revenue and market share, it also is the fastest-growing storage array in EMC history. XtremIO array sales rocketed to a $500 million annualized demand run-rate in its first three complete quarters, with about 30% of systems being sold to net-new EMC customers. Why? XtremIO all-flash arrays deliver transformational simplicity, acceleration, consolidation, and agility for databases, analytics, business applications, private/hybrid cloud, and VDI.
This week from Milan Italy, EMC announced new storage, software and partner solutions that we believe will unleash the power of flash and revolutionize midrange storage.
Not coincidentally, the 2013 Formula One Gran Premio D’Italia is happening this weekend at the Autodromo di Monza near Milan. So, in the spirit of the race, EMC’s Flash Products Division is excited to announce that we are “turbocharging” applications with the release of XtremSW Cache 2.0.
Hear Dave Nicholson and Sam Marracini talk about XtremSW Cache 2.0 and why customers are excited.
As the CTO of EMC’s Flash Products Division, I’m proud to say that over the past five years EMC has set the pace in Flash innovation. Quick flashback…
EMC defined a new tier of storage in 2008 with the first enterprise “Flash-enabled” storage array (EMC VMAX).
EMC then revolutionized the way storage is automatically managed in 2010 with the introduction of FAST (Fully Automated Storage Tiering).
In 2012 we unleashed the power of Flash in the server with VFCache.
As you can see, EMC has a calculated and methodical cadence of Flash hardware and software breakthroughs that deliver capabilities to satisfy every customer use case.
And what’s next?
Today we are continuing to set the pace by rounding out our Flash hardware portfolio and further establishing EMC’s leadership in the market with the new Xtrem Family of Flash products, including the introduction of the new EMC XtremSF (here’s the press release). XtremSF is our new family of PCIe Flash cards deployed in the server to accelerate workload performance. This new line of cost-effective eMLC Flash cards, ranging in capacity from 550 GB to 2.2 TB, delivers unprecedented performance (with a screaming 1.13 million IOPS) and efficiency for applications that need the absolute best performance and lowest latency (think scale-out Web applications). XtremSF can be used as local storage or as the foundation for EMC’s server Flash caching software, XtremSW Cache (formerly VFCache).
