Dell EMC The Source Podcast #61 - ScaleIo and ScaleIo Ready node

Software Defined Storage (SDS) is defined as: An approach to data storage in which programming the controls storage-related tasks is decoupled from the physical storage hardware, providing the ability to manage policy-based provisioning and management of data storage independent of the underlying hardware.

Dell EMC ScaleIO is a scalable and performant Software-Defined Storage (SDS) Solution for block storage which delivers public cloud agility with private cloud resiliency. It creates a server SAN from local server storage to deliver flexible, elastic and scalable performance and capacity on demand. ScaleIO is software, software that has been available as a free download since EMC World, May 2015 without capacity restrictions.  ScaleIO is an easy download for VMware, Linux and Windows here www.emc.com/getScaleIO.

While ScaleIO software solutions have been helping Dell EMC Customers deliver scalable, flexible block storage for traditional and cloud native workloads, combining the power of Dell EMC Scale IO software and Dell PowerEdge Server platform is an obvious next step.

The Dell EMC ScaleIO Ready Node is pre-configured and pre-qualified to run ScaleIO Software providing a software defined, all-flash storage foundation for your modern datacenter.

I sat down with Jyothi Swaroop (@jswaroop) and Jason Brown (@FelixNU98), Principal Product Marketing Manager, ScaleIO to get the latest on ScaleIO and the newly released Dell EMC ScaleIO ready node.

EMC The Source Podcast #53 - The Other CI with Natalie Corridan-Gregg

Talk CI in the tech industry today, and most people think Converged Infrastructure, and rightfully so.  There is, however, a minority that immediately think Competitive Intelligence–the other CI.

While most associate Competitive Intelligence with Secret Agents and Espionage, that stereotype couldn’t be further from the truth.

In fact, there are professional organizations like SCIP “Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professional” dedicated to providing a platform for strategic intelligence, research decision-support tools process and analytics.

At EMC World 2016, Business Intelligence was a breakout session, the cross road of Competitive Intelligence and Market Intelligence.  That breakout session was in part delivered by Natalie Corridan-Gregg, Sr. Director of EMC Competitive Intelligence Team.  Natalie is also extremely active in EMC Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF), cofounder of Women of World and creator behind “The Working Mother Experience
