Dell EMC The Source Podcast Episode #92 - The Great Xcape

Dell EMC The Source Podcast Episode #92 – The Great Xcape

Dell EMC World provided a great opportunity to showcase everything that is happening here at Dell Technologies. If you made it to the back of the solutions expo, you couldn’t miss the Virtual Converged Tour and “The Great Xcape Room”.   A hands-on escape room focused on the simplicity of deploying the Dell EMC VxRail platform. The Xscape Room was one of the biggest hits of the expo.

The man behind the experience? None other than Colin Galagher (@WorldC3), Sr. Director, Hyper Converged Infrastructure Marketing.

Dell EMC The Source Podcast Episode 89: Introducing Dell EMC XtremIO X2

Dell EMC World 2017 included over a dozen major product announcements, and as always, Dell EMC The Source podcast is here to get the details.   This week we take a closer look at “Dell EMC XtremIO X2 All-Flash Array

Sure, XtremIO X2 is an “All-Flash Storage Array” but like the original, Flash is just the storage media. XtremIO and now X2 are all about software. Software that provided consistent performance and efficiency to address your VDI and large scale workload needs. XtremIO X2 delivers 3x the capacity, 25% more efficiency all at 1/3rd the price per GB.

I sat down with XtremIO CTO, Itzik Reich (@itzikr) to get the details. You can find more X2 details here Direct2DellEMC Next Gen All-Flash Blog and be sure to check out Itzik’s blog www.xtremio.me

Dell EMC The Source Podcast #87: New Media with Danny Cobb

Media impacts everything, from end user devices to enterprise storage platforms and everything in-between. Moore’s Law continues to drive the media evolution along with von Neumann’s Law or Memory Design, basically stating that the fastest memory will always be as close to the CPU as possible while memory size will increase, along with latency, but cost will be reduced. That theory is as true today as it was in the 1940s.

At Dell EMC World, I sat down with Danny Cobb (@Dcobbweb), Dell EMC Fellow and VP of Emerging Media, and we talked NVHMCI, NVMe, M.2, 14G, new form factors and the ultimate question, what’s next?   But I feel like every time I talk to Danny, it’s the same conclusion. From the original NVMHCI (Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Interface Specification) created by Dell, Microsoft and Intel in 2008, NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Extension), NVMe represents the next step in that evolution. But like traditional Flash, it’s not NVMe that unlocks customer value, it’s the software and architecture.

Software Enables Media, from the Client to the Cloud.
