A 4:1 Guarantee with 4 Winning Storage Arrays  

So how is your business meaningfully dealing with storage efficiency in the face of flat or declining IT budgets? Or are you? If you’re not, then you may be confronted with wasted disk space, higher storage/management costs, time-consuming storage provisioning – or more. These are exactly the types of storage inefficiencies that can significantly impact your ability to meet SLAs and rapidly provision key IT applications.

As aggressive data growth continues in small/medium to enterprise size businesses, IT is required to deal with and manage it much more cost–storage efficiency guaranteeeffectively. This means it’s about applying the right technologies to increase the efficiency of your storage infrastructure. But how storage efficiency is ultimately achieved and measured becomes a matter of how confident you are about selecting and implementing the best combination of storage arrays and efficiency features that are simple to deploy and use. And when a convincing storage efficiency guarantee comes along with the technology, then you really know you have the right combination. That’s what the new Dell EMC Flash Storage Efficiency Guarantee is all about – delivering meaningful and measurable storage efficiency when deploying any Dell EMC Unity, VMAX All Flash Arrays, or XtremIO Arrays and any SC Series* All-Flash or hybrid configuration.

The new Efficiency Guarantee promises Dell EMC will provide a logical storage capacity at least four times (4:1) the usable physical capacity of your purchased configuration. Powerful efficiency features such as compression, deduplication, thin provisioning, and snapshots will aggressively reduce startup and lifecycle costs, helping you squeeze more valuable data into less space with less management effort.

At Dell EMC, we understand the pressures on today’s IT buyers to stretch every budget dollar, while delivering the consistent performance your business stakeholders expect.  New workloads demand the high IOPs and low latency that flash storage solutions can provide – but if the capacity you need is too expensive, your users will miss out on the technology’s transformational benefits that help reduce complexity and costs while simplifying management.

So simply pick the Dell EMC storage solution that’s right for you and let Dell EMC start proving how efficient it can make your data center – and your business.

Here at Dell EMC, we’re always trying to utilize the breadth of our product portfolio to maximize the synergies between products and deliver the best solutions for our customers. With market-leading storage and data protection options, ensuring that customers can use them together is critical to transforming the data center and getting the most out of their investment. One such product is Dell EMC ScaleIO, our software-defined block storage offering.

When we talk to customers, protection of ScaleIO data is always a hot topic. With six 9’s availability, ScaleIO provides excellent peace of mind for customers storing their most critical production data on the platform. However, there are some customers who want to go above and beyond and use data protection tools, such as replication, to provide multi-site business continuity in case of a disaster. Recently, there has been some great collaboration between our ScaleIO and RecoverPoint teams which we’re excited to share with you today.

On February 22, 2017 Dell EMC announced RecoverPoint 5.0.1 general availability. This announcement includes the release of a new RecoverPoint service pack which provides physical RecoverPoint appliance (RPA) support for ScaleIO 2.0.1. There are a ton of features in this release for ScaleIO which we are excited to share with you!

First, with this new integration we can not only provide ScaleIO / ScaleIO replication support, but also ScaleIO / VNX replication support. This is a game changer! It enables customers to use ScaleIO as a source and target cluster for ScaleIO AND VNX workloads, providing yet another way for customers to take advantage of the simplified storage lifecycle management and business value benefits of ScaleIO. It gets even more exciting as there are plans to incorporate other Dell EMC platforms into the mix!

You may have heard in the news that a little merger happened  a few weeks ago between Dell and EMC.  Of course I say that kiddingly.  This was the biggest merge to take place in technological history.  A major transformation has been taking place to bring these two technology power houses together as the newly formed Dell EMC.  I, for one, could not be more excited to be a part of making history as an employee of this amazing new company.

So why am I telling you all this? I want to invite you to also be a part of history in the making by getting a first-hand -view of the transformation.  How you ask? Join us for an exclusive Dell EMC event this week in San Francisco.  A three day event starting today is being hosted at 839 Howard Street right across from Moscone Center West.  My suspicion is many of you reading this are at Oracle Open World…so why not stop by?  Here are a few reasons why you should:

  • You’ve heard a lot about Dell EMC – Find out directly from the experts what that means to you
  • Dell EMC Oracle Solutions experts will be onsite conducting 1×1 demos and answering all of your questions
  • Technical experts will be running engaging sessions that will showcase Dell EMC solutions for Oracle Applications
  • Breakfast and lunch will be served AND it will be amazing! If you joined us last year you know this is no average conference food
  • Dell EMC knows how to throw a party! This Tuesday night will be one you won’t want to miss

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to be a part of the EMC Rocks Oracle Open World event out in San Francisco.  We took over the elan Events Center on Howard Street to create a venue that acted as a genius bar and haven for those attending Oracle Open World.  I say haven because, if you’ve been to a large conference, you know the biggest complaints you hear are always “I couldn’t get a seat at the keynote”, “I missed the lunch hour”, “it’s too crowded”, or “the booths were so busy I did not get enough 1×1 time with the experts”.
banner1We wanted to take a different approach.  Our idea was to provide the following:

  • A space that people would have plenty of room to watch the keynote streaming live while they were enjoying a great breakfast
  • EMC and Oracle Solutions Experts available all day long for that intimate conversation
  • Small sessions on topics Oracle DBAs would need to be more successful in their roles while serving healthy and hearty meals in a laid back space
  • An amazing customer appreciate party at the end of it all

So how did we do?  Let’s see the reviews on Twitter:
