    EMC WORLD, LAS VEGAS - May 02, 2016 -

    EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC) today announced multiple new modern data center products and services fundamental to customers' modern data center transformation initiatives. This transformation is leading to complex data center priorities: 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-gen application development needs. Each requires different investments, which largely come from the same (typically flat) IT budget. The first step toward balancing these conflicted IT priorities is to modernize the infrastructure on which IT is built.

    Today EMC introduced the 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.

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 center in order to thrive as a digital business."
