When visiting the Solutions Exchange at VMworld it was nearly impossible to miss the EMC booth.
They had an impressive exhibition booth, that was well visited, too.
This year they presented their EMC Hybrid Cloud solutions and products with a mini-theater session and cloud experts gave visitors a deep insight in personal discussions about eg:
- ViPR Software Defined Storage
- ViPR SRM
- ECS Appliance
Another topic was EMC XtremIO – an all-flash scale-out enterprise storage array.
EMC XtremIO is for example used in the VMware Hands-on-Labs datacenter in Amsterdam. A 12U EMC XtremeIO box replaced the previous used storage infrastructure solution that required five complete racks (this info came from a HOL architect during the VMUG HOL VIP Tour).
But EMC also supported community events at VMworld – this year for example they were so kind to be a sponsor of the vRockstar VMworld Kick-off party. The event took place in the Hard Rock Cafe at Sunday, October 12 and was a great success.
Another event at VMworld from EMC was the EMC TEEAM and Avnet Welcome Reception at Camp Nou inclusive a guided stadium tour. Thank you David (@SD_Cloudy) for the invitation!
