At the ongoing EMC World 2016 forum holding in Las Vegas, the United States of America, EMC Corporation has released multiple new modern data centre products and services that are fundamental to customers’ modern data centre transformation initiatives.
The forum is an annual gathering of EMC customers, partners, industry analysts and members of the global media.
The announcements span major new all flash storage, cloud storage, copy data management, software-defined storage, and service and support capabilities.
EMC Corporation is a global leader in enabling businesses and service providers to transform their operations and deliver information technology, IT, as a service. Fundamental to this transformation is cloud computing.
The new development is expected to lead to complex data centre priorities, while maintaining traditional business applications as efficiently and in a low-cost manner as possible without compromising service integrity, and using those savings to support next-generation application development needs.
The new wave of solutions including new EMC Unity family of all-flash storage, Virtustream Storage Cloud platform; EMC MyService360 service-centric online dashboard, EMC Enterprise Copy Data Management, eCDM, and ViPR Controller 3.0 announced at the forum is the first step toward balancing these conflicted IT priorities, to modernize the infrastructure on which IT is built.
Speaking on the new development, David Goulden, EMC Information Infrastructure, Chief Executive Officer said that, “the IT industry is in a state of massive transformation, resulting in both disruption and great opportunity.
“Every business leader, across every industry, is facing the dilemma of how to support and grow traditional IT infrastructure while modernizing the data centre in order to support the development of new applications and advance their digital agenda. Some are doing all of this simultaneously.
“The products and services announced today will help advance the customer’s journey to build a modern data centre in order to thrive as a digital business.”
