Project Liberty Comes To Life: Introducing Software-Defined vVNX Community Edition

Today’s IT deployment model is different.  It’s less about racking and stacking, and more about virtualized deployments and the agile movement of virtualized containers within and between physical equipment, like a virtualization-optimized hybrid flash VNX storage array.   We see a bright future in the virtualization of not only servers but also storage, which provides businesses with the agility to rapidly deploy test and development environments.

That’s why today we are bringing Project Liberty to market and offering a free downloadable version of our trusted VNX array, vVNX Community Edition. vVNX is a software-only instantiation of EMC’s VNX storage that can be easily deployed on a VMware ESX server, providing a consistent management interface, support for NAS and SAN storage protocols and data services familiar to VNX users such as snapshots and remote replication.

Jason Hepp

General Manager of the Global Microsoft Solutions Business Unit at EMC

We’ve said it a number of times and it bears repeating – EMC is excited about cloud computing – it’s all about enabling flexible deployment options and providing our customers with Choice.   With our commitment as a foundation, I’m thrilled to share what we’re doing with Microsoft around private cloud and application environments.

EMC Technology Boosts Performance, Becomes An Enabler For Business Growth For RegEd

Jim Olevano

Principal Architect at RegEd

For companies doing business online, client experience is critical. In fact, industry studies have shown that if the online experience is not optimal in performance and usability, the outcome is dissatisfied clients.

As a Principal Architect for RegEd, a provider of professional licensing and compliance management solutions, I understand this all too well. As a company, we hold a substantial market share among the top 1,000 financial services firms, and we didn’t get there without delivering an outstanding client experience. This is where EMC enters the picture.


EMC VNX Helps Van Meter Bust Through Cloud Roadblock, Transform Productivity

EMC Pulse

The housing market at times can be ruthless; the economic downturn in early 2013 was exhibit number one. Those companies serving this market that made some tough, but smart decisions emerged the victors.  Others, not so much. Enter Van Meter Inc. (VMI), a supplier of electrical and mechanical products, services and solutions. VMI took control of their own destiny, made strategic alliances and acquisitions and, if that wasn’t enough, undertook a complete transformation of their IT infrastructure.

Jason Sinclair, a systems engineer at VMI, recently spoke to us about the impact on VMI’s IT infrastructure once the company decided to turbo-charge sales growth, acquire new companies and expand into new markets. The VMI IT team faced serious challenges associated with data growth in their IBM storage environment. “Our IBM storage was running short on performance and capacity. Even more challenging was that our private cloud and virtualization strategy was held back—we couldn’t get beyond 20% virtualization.”


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.

EMC VNXRecently, Gartner released a follow-on Market Share Analysis report that focuses on the worldwide consolidated NAS/unified storage market in its “Market Share Analysis: Network-Attached Storage and Unified Storage, Worldwide, 2012”. 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).
