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

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.

2016 is the Year of Flash!  The last few episodes of EMC the Source Podcast covered the latest All-Flash Storage offerings here at EMC.  DSSD D5 and VMAX All-Flash represent a quantum leap in enterprise Flash storage offering.  While 2016 represents a monumental year for Flash, the cost tipping point, technology will continue to evolve.

So what’s next?  What can we expect beyond 2016?  I sat down with Dan Cobb, Vice President of EMC Flash and Non-Volatile Strategy.  We talk skyscrapers, Jetsons, silicon and the blurring line between storage, memory and CPU.
