EMC World 2013 delivered on the Xtrem plan, the X-Factor delivered as promised. The EMC Flash everywhere strategy was highlighted throughout the event and even reviewed during the executive keynote! The breakout sessions, packed! Standing room only! The XtremIO sessions were turning people away, just not enough room for everyone. From introduction sessions to production demonstrations, the event was a success.
And as expected, I had my camera and microphone ready. I was able to get the highlight of what’s happening within Flash engineering. As you are aware, the EMC FLASH.NEXT launch introduced the Xtrem Family: XtremSF (PCIe Server Flash), XtremSW Cache (Caching Software) and XtremIO (EMCs All Flash Array). I was able to spend some time with representatives of each engineering team and get a little insight into “what’s next” after FLASH.NEXT.
The biggest “What’s next” has to be XtremSW Cache 2.0. Scheduled to GA in July (2013), XtremSW Cache 2.0 includes some unique features that will continue to set it apart from the competition. Check out InsideFlash Episode #9 below for some insight.
