First, a big thank you to everyone who stopped by to see us at EMC World. Our theme was 100% Relaxed. And while we were very relaxed setting up the booth, we had huge crowds throughout the week, as everyone wanted to visit our Data Lifeguards.
I hope that they helped you relax just a little. If we did nothing else, we proved two things:
- Our lives are filled with series of unexpected events
- If you prepare properly, you will still be able to relax
Our CEO, Eli Efrat, appeared on The Cube, looking very relaxed, and talked evolution and revolution, the progress that Axxana has made over the past year, Axxana’s ability to augment RecoverPoint, enabling synchronous replication over any distance, reducing peak-load communication costs, and eliminating the need for additional data centers. We help you turn a very small investment into a tremendous financial impact. You can watch a replay of his interview with Dave Vellante of Wikibon here, including a surprise visit by The Stig.
One way that EMC’s customers are trying to relax more is by moving applications and infrastructure to the cloud. In keeping with that, we have stayed in lockstep with our partner, EMC, by supporting VCE Vblock together with EMC RecoverPoint. In case you don’t know, VCE Vblocks are the integrated building blocks from VMware, Cisco and EMC, to enable rapid deployments of private clouds. Rick Walsworth, the Director of Product Marketing for EMC’s Infrastructure Management Group and a huge champion for EMC’s RecoverPoint software, appeared on The Cube and talked about the importance of protecting data, when applications are moved into the cloud. His interview with Dave Vellante and John Furrier of Silicon Angle is here.
We had hundreds of meetings at EMC World, but we aren’t done getting the message out. More details to come, but we will be bringing our theme of relaxation to a series of lunch and learn events around the U.S. I hope to see you at one of our upcoming events.
There was a recent article in The Financial Daily about MCB Bank Limited’s decision to pursue a Zero Data Loss solution to support the company’s banking operations. They chose EMC as their partner, and EMC will be making recommendations on the appropriate storage architecture for the Zero Data Loss solution. I’m always interested in articles about companies implementing Zero Data Loss solutions. It validates our market, and it helps reinforce our message that Zero Data Loss is achievable.
Today, we announced Axxana support for the VCE Coalition’s Vblock 0 and Vblock 1 offerings. Regardless of what opinion you hold on the question, “Will companies implement Private Clouds, Public Clouds or No Clouds?”, you have to agree that, if companies consolidate virtual servers, Cloud or No Cloud, they need high availability and rapid recovery. And if your company decides to implement a Private Cloud based on Vblock 0 or Vblock 1, Axxana and EMC RecoverPoint are ready to insure that your cloud has zero data loss.
