Digital Transformation is here, and Dell EMC is leading the way. Dell EMC World in Austin provided the perfect opportunity for the very first “Dell EMC World”.  A unique setting to highlight the power of Dell Technologies, Dell EMC and the entire family of companies.  Bigger and better than ever, Dell EMC World included a full array of technical and strategy breakout sessions along with a CxO event for both commercial and enterprise size businesses.

With insights across cloud, mobility, big data, IoT security and storage, Dell EMC World offered something for everyone. From product announcements to workshops and labs, it was a great opportunity to learn from the best in the business.

I spent some time with Adeel Omer (@GeeekInAustin), we talked about Dell EMC World, the differences from prior years and what we found most interesting about the show and Dell Technologies!

Didn’t get a chance to visit Austin? You can check out all the keynotes and select breakouts sessions in the “Live” library here and don’t forget to mark your calendars for Dell EMC World Las Vegas, May 8th – 11tt, 2016 at The Las Vegas Venetian.

The rapid growth of unstructured data represents a significant challenge for many enterprises across industries. As the volume and sources of data have expanded dramatically, traditional techniques to store and analyze information have proved to be too expensive and too slow to handle the massive data volumes modern enterprise product and manage.  Dell EMC Isilon is designed to directly address that challenge, taking your data lake strategy to the next level with new scale-out offerings providing breakthrough efficiency, scale and agility from edge to core to cloud.

Earlier this week at Dell EMC World, Isilon became the latest member of the Dell EMC All-Flash Portfolio. This week on Dell EMC The Source, Ed Beauvais (@EdBeauvais), Director Isilon Product Marketing stops by to talk Isilon and the impact of All-Flash for density (68 PB) and performance (25 Million IOPS). How does that translate to your workloads?  Find out this week on Dell EMC The Source.  For more visit www.emc.com/isilon

Cloud. Cloud is everywhere. Cloud is fueling the transformation of technology, so what is Dell EMC doing? Who are the other players in the industry and how are we working together?  Dorian Naveh (@DorianNaveh), Sr. Director Technology Alliances joins me this week as we talk open source, cloud consumption models and the vast Dell EMC Cloud ecosystem and most important, how our customers are using Dell EMC technologies as a fundamental part of their cloud deployments.

Earlier today, DELL EMC introduced the latest All-Flash offering in the VMAX All-Flash family. Now with three distinct models- the VMAX 250F, the VMAX 450F, and the VMAX 850F, the VMAX All Flash Arrays all share the trusted Dynamic Virtual Matrix architecture and HYPERMAX OS. The VMAX All-Flash products are specifically architected to meet the storage capacity and performance requirements of the All Flash Enterprise Data Center. The VMAX All Flash products are feature-rich All Flash offerings with specific capabilities designed to take advantage of the new higher capacity flash drives used in the densest configuration possible. The VMAX All Flash Arrays offer enterprise customers the trusted VMAX data services, the improved simplicity, capacity, and performance which their highly virtualized environments demand, while still meeting the economics of the more traditional storage workloads.

While the VMAX 250F was introduced October 10th, I was able to get a preview of the technology back at VMWorld 2016. I sat down in a highly secure room with Scott Delandy (@ScottDelandy) and Melissa Gurney (@SolutionGeek) to get the details.
