HOPKINTON, Mass. - October 04, 2012 -
EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), has assembled and will announce a lineup of products and technologies designed to transform IT and business at the VMworld® 2012 conference on October 9-11 at the Fira Gran Via Barcelona in Barcelona, Spain. EMC® will highlight broad technology integration with the industry's most advanced cloud infrastructure suite, VMware vSphere®, further enabling the transformation of IT. The combination of EMC's industry-leading information infrastructure products, solutions and services with VMware virtualization and cloud infrastructure technologies accelerates the customer journey to the cloud — lowering IT costs and improving business agility.
Delivering IT as a service requires a shift of focus along with new technologies, products, solutions, services, processes and staff certifications to support this transformation. With opportunities to provide a hands-on experience to learn and acquire practical guidance, attendees will develop skills from EMC’s vSpecialists and their peers to experience the benefits of EMC with VMware virtualization and cloud infrastructure technologies.
This August, EMC announced it captured the #1 position in leading industry analyst Wikibon’s1 annual virtualization study: "vSphere 5 Storage Integration Chips Away at Management Overhead." When asked which vendor offers the best solution for VMware environments, 49% of all respondents named EMC® named as #1, nearly 3X more than the nearest competitor and more than the combined scores of the six other remaining storage vendors. EMC VNX® and EMC VMAX® were the two EMC storage systems included among the twelve products in the survey. Customers singled out EMC storage systems as the best in each of the three survey categories – general, block-only and unified storage.
Show attendees will gain a deeper understanding of how to secure, backup and protect their EMC and VMware virtualized and cloud environments featuring EMC Avamar®, RSA® and EMC VPLEX®. On full display will be EMC and EMC partner technologies offering end- user customers and service providers “three paths to the cloud” choice and flexibility — best-of-breed cloud infrastructure products for customer implementation, VCE Vblock Systems for converged infrastructure and the channel-only EMC VSPEX™ Proven Infrastructure.
