Industry Analyst Quote:
Mark Peters, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group
"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
"EMC's VNX and EMC FAST Suite allow us to execute an effective FLASH 1st strategy for faster application and cost-effective data management. With just 5% of our capacity in Flash drives, we've doubled our performance and reduced costs 30%. We're also looking forward to upgrading to the new VNX efficiency features, particularly mixing RAID types per pool for additional cost savings. We anticipate the new VNX features to save our team approximately 8-10 hours per week of administration time by automatically rebalancing storage pools when new data is added."
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
"EMC unified storage has leapfrogged to the top of the midrange storage market thanks to relentless innovation, simplicity, efficiency and performance. EMC continues to develop new, industry-leading solutions to enable customers to build, maintain and manage virtual and cloud apps, and the storage essential to both."
All of these enhancements and new offerings are expected to be available in the second half of 2012.
