My name is Howard and I’m a marketing guy. There I said it! Admitting to it is the first step right?
Truth be known, I started “life” as a phone support guy then got promoted to Sales Engineer due to my good looks. That role dragged on far too long. Hanging out in data centers at 3am installing and troubleshooting ATM and Frame Relay gear got old; just like that technology.
When I’m not marketing tech stuff, I’m either playing with my own tech gear at home or travelling to some exotic destination with my incredible wife, Mary. Fifty/Fifty chance it’s a shopping or exotic beach destination next time you get my out-of-office message.
As we transition to a new year many people will make a resolution to do things better in life; to transform the way they live and interact in the world. Some get a new job to increase life satisfaction, to make more money or quite simply live a healthier lifestyle. As a legacy EMC employee, we, as a company are transitioning to Dell EMC for the better. And to do that, we must continue to operate flawlessly into 2017 and beyond for our customers. We here at Dell EMC also want to see. our customers flawlessly transform their data center for the better.
For our customers running VMAX 1 and VMAX 2 (10/20/40K) platforms, refreshing to a new VMAX All Flash delivers incredible operational and TCO benefits. We created VMAX All Flash to allow you run your business more effectively. Not only is it easy to purchase, migrate to and grow, but it’s so much simpler to manage. Add to that the cost savings in footprint and consolidation and a storage managers life couldn’t get much better.
Here’s a quick example of a customer that did a VMAX 20K refresh to a new VMAX 450F. This customer had a 9-Bay VMAX 20K with 800TB of usable capacity. We transformed them from a 9 rack VMAX 20K to a single bay/single floor tile VMAX 450F. This new model delivered 6x more performance, 87% less energy, 92% less footprint with a whopping 40% lower TCO.
