So we’ve returned fresh from the long holiday weekend, and spent part of today talking about EMC World.
Our senior news director, Dave Raffo, tackled live reporting from the event, filing stories from the conference that covered when EMC CEO Joe Tucci talked about the futures of hybrid SSD and cloud storage, as well as what EMC mentioned – and left out – during its announced upgrades for Data Domain and Avamar 6.1, and even some of EMC’s upcoming projects, such the flash card-equipped Project Thunder appliance and XtremIO’s all-flash array. And Dave talked with executive editor Ellen O’Brien about the conference in the latest episode of our Storage Radio podcast.
Meanwhile, site editor Andrew Burton was in the trenches with conference attendees and experts, and filmed interviews with IT pros about their concerns about SSDs and cloud, experts’ thoughts on EMC’s “flash everywhere” SSD strategy and the latest news involving VCE’s Vblock infrastructure package as reported by executive director Rich Castagna.
But what did you learn? What was surprising about EMC’s announcements, and what was expected? Doesn’t matter if you attended EMC World or kept up with the latest news on SearchStorage.com – let us know what you thought of this year’s conference in the comments below!
