"EMC's multifaceted enhancements to its VNX unified storage family hit on many different, crucial storage pain points experienced by IT generalists. EMC's transformation of its midrange storage offerings — for example, focusing on FLASH 1st ' single-click application protection and analytics in VMware environments — demonstrates its deep understanding of its target customers. Simplicity, cost-effectiveness, efficiency and automation are all paramount in these IT environments, and EMC is clearly a leader in providing effective unified storage solutions."
Helder Rebelo, SAN, Backup and Storage Consultant Manager, Portugal Telecom
" Since deploying the VNX with the FAST Suite and Flash drives, we've seen a great performance increase on our applications. Besides being the most efficient way for us to handle data as it moves from hot to cold, the FLASH 1st strategy is important for our environment because of the performance that our enterprise applications demand. EMC has key differentiating features that allow us to execute this strategy, which enable us to run applications faster and manage our data more cost-effectively. We're also looking forward to upgrading to the new VNX efficiency features, particularly mixing RAID types per pool, which will allow us to save money."
Patrick Williams, Systems Specialist, North Carolina State University
"With just 5% of our capacity in Flash drives, we've been able to double our performance and reduce costs by 30%. Additionally, the new features on our VNX will enable the team to be more efficient. For example, we will be able to save 8-10 hours per week of administration time by automatically rebalancing storage pools when new data is added. Whether it's automatically allocating hot and cold data with FLASH 1st or ratcheting down our power costs by running more efficiently, EMC's VNX products effectively meet both our budget and our performance needs.
Rich Napolitano, President, EMC Unified Storage Division
