Dell EMC The Source Podcast Episode 80 - Sam Marraccini Jeff Smith Patrick Harkins

Dell EMC The Source Podcast Episode 80

The Dell EMC Hockey Tour recently concluded its regular season in home of the Hockey Hall of Fame, Toronto, Ontario. I had the pleasure of presenting the Dell EMC IT Transformation Story as part of the program. I spent some time with Jeff Smith (@JeffSmithVCE), Dell EMC CPSD CTO between the presentations and faceoff. Converged Platforms are enabling our customers to address both IT and Digital Transformation. Jeff talks Converged and Hyper-Converged and how our customer conversations have evolved since the early days (2009) and how Hyper-Converged conversations are redefining what customers can expect from Dell EMC.

After that, I had the opportunity to talk to Patrick Harkins, CTO Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre. Patrick found himself facing poor application performance and unhappy doctors, specifically related to a Medatech application. The answer? XtremIO – While the All-Flash Performance provided 60-70% performance gains, he found the real value in the in-line data services and scale-out architecture all at lower cost than his previous solution.
