Yesterday’s launch of VxRail represents a historic moment in EMC history.  Together with VMware the introduction of the VCE VxRail appliance family marks the first joint product announcement, where EMC and VMware engineers have worked side by side developing, testing and validation a fully integrated hyper converged appliance.

IT infrastructure is no longer just supporting the business; it is the business enabler. Infrastructure must support constant business demands for new applications and services with limited budgets and resources. Yet there is limited time to constantly evaluate and integrate hardware, software and networking solutions to meet continuously evolving requirements. Create an automated, dynamic infrastructure that adapts to your business demands with the VCE VxRail Appliance Family.

Introducing VxRail

Introducing VxRail – Featured on EMC The Source Podcast Episode #30

The VxRail appliance family offers Massive scalability, Simplified management, Simplified IT and Industry-leading data services that extend beyond the traditional appliance model including: deduplication, compression, replication, backup, and cloud tiering to public clouds, such as VMware vCloud Air, Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure.

The official launch replay can be found here, along with links to anything you need to know about the launch and VxRail.

This week on EMC The Source Podcast I sat down with Colin Galagher (@WorldC3), Sr. Director, Hyper Converged infrastructure Marketing.  We recorded immediately after the launch, to say he was fired up would be an understatement.  Thanks for listening.

EMC Video Surveillance Solutions

EMCTheSource Podcast Episode #29: EMC Video Surveillance Solutions

EMC teams with industry-leading video surveillance partners to provide proven, end-to-end video surveillance solutions.  Back in Episode #7, I spoke to Ken Mills (@OtherKen) and Terry Gainer, former law enforcement officer with over 30 years experience on the force.   Terry outlined the rapid growth and challenges faced by law enforcement offices in connecting, storing and managing massive amounts of data in a Video Surveillance Data Lake.

Continuing that conversation, I’m once again joined by Ken Mills (@OtherKen) to review some of EMCs joint solutions; Solutions tested and certified at the EMC Surveillance Validation Labs, renowned for conducting rigorous interoperability testing and optimized storage configuration models.

EMCs extensive partner community allows for simple and efficient Plug and Play solutions, requiring little technical configuration during deployment and operation.  Joining Ken and I this week is Steve Teitelbaum (@STeitelbaum).  Steve is the Solution Manager for Surveillance Solutions at Avnet Embedded, where he is responsible for building end to end Video Surveillance Solutions.

This week we dig into Avnet Enabled Video Surveillance Solutions.
