Dell EMC has been helping enterprise solve mainframe storage problems for decades and is now redefining the traditional storage array; morphing it into a “Data Services Platform” that will become the bridge between the 1st and 3rd platforms to modernize and deliver the next generation of Hybrid Cloud computing and storage with the ultimate in availability, data integrity, and TCO management.

In select cities, the Dell EMC Forum event series featured a Mainframe breakout track. I caught up with an old friend, Robin Fromm (@rlfromm) CTO Dell EMC Mainframe Solutions, to get the latest. For the latest mainframe developments, be sure to visit the ECN community page at www.emc.com/mainframe

The recent EMC Forum events in both New York and Dallas featured a mainframe breakout track.  That’s right, mainframe is back; actually, it never went away.  The breakout track included:  “Mainframe: EMC Storage Solutions Vision and Strategy for z Systems”, “VMAX Mainframe Performance Update: Turbocharging Your Mission-Critical infrastructure with zBoost and zBoost PAV Optimizer”, ‘FAST: Game-Changing Storage Tiering for the Mainframe, “Disk Library for Mainframe (DLm) Concepts, Product and Performance Update”, and “Mainframe Birds of a Feather Discusses EMC Storage”

I tracked down one of the masterminds behind the highly successful track, a longtime friend of mine, David Kipp.  David is the Go-To-Market Lead for EMC Mainframe Solutions.  We spent some time talking about the track at the Dallas EMC Forum.
