Welcome to Inside the Partnership (EMC/MSFT) Episode #32, June 14, 2012.
Once again EMC is a Platinum Sponsor of Microsoft TechEd. In the last episode of Inside the Partnership I covered the TechEd Keynote and EMCs guest appearance. The keynote featured an EMC VNX with ODX (Offloaded Data Transfer), Microsoft demonstrated a 1GB per second file copy. If you haven’t watched it, take a look.
This episode is a high level overview of EMCs presence at Microsoft TechEd 2012. Including: Avamar 6.1, a Best of TechEd Finalist. I spent some time with Alex Almedia to get a high level overview of Avamar 6.1. Then I visited Txomin Barturen with his “Toys” The EMC Microsoft Fast Track Private Cloud. The customer interest was overwhelming. Txomin spent most of the conference demonstrating ODX and SMB 3.0 support.
VFCache, Server side PCIe Flash IO accelerator, is a key component of EMCs Fully Automated Storage Tiering, extending FAST to the server. I spent some time reviewing VFCache Hardware and Software, for more VFCache info visit www.InsideFlash.com.
Mike Mcghee was EMCs breakout presenter. I spent some time reviewing his session and spent some time with Neil Salamack talking about EMCs latest data protection product, AppSync. More details on AppSync and Mikes presentation on future episodes of Inside the partnership.
Just like last year, the EMC prize patrol was in action, and the EMC grand prize giveaway was HUGE!!! Check out all that EMC Blue… Congratulations to our $1000 winner.
