This week we’re coming to you live from Las Vegas at the Dell EMC World show, which takes place from May 8th through 11th.
We’ve got a packed week ahead with some exciting product news, demonstrations with Dell EMC and great speaking engagements from our team. We’re also excited to engage one-on-one with our customers, our partners and industry influencers as we showcase the benefits of our solution portfolio, encompassing deep expertise and insights across cloud, virtualization and hybrid IT data centers.
We’re giving special demonstrations at our booth with the Dell EMC team all week. We’re the only vendor at the show that will have the new Dell EMC VMAX 950F all-flash storage array, the highest performance all-flash storage system ever offered by Dell EMC. We will be supporting real-world workloads that are simulated by Load DynamiX Enterprise workload generators, all of which is monitored by VirtualWisdom 5.2, our award winningperformance management solution that delivers actionable insights so IT teams can proactively assure performance, optimize cost and reduce risk throughout their constantly changing data center infrastructure.
Our product news for the show is focused on customer-driven enhancements to VirtualWisdom, which will soon support hyperconverged architectures and offers improved visibility of hybrid IT infrastructure environments, providing real-time situational awareness throughout the entire enterprise IT organization. For a list of additional features and benefits on VirtualWisdom 5.2, read our release here.
We’re also introducing a new lower-cost, entry-level 12-port 16Gb SAN Performance Probe for Fibre Channel environments, giving customers more deployment options. The new entry-level 12-port probe reduces the per-port cost of real-time performance monitoring by approximately 35 percent.
Lastly, our CTO John Gentry will be leading a session titled, “Industry best practices for realizing the full value of VMAX and XtremIO deployment,” which will take place on Monday, May 8th at 3 p.m. PT, in Lando 4203. Additionally, our vice president of Alliances, Kalen Kimm, will present our VI App-centric IPM solution portfolio in the Dell EMC Tech Connect Theatre (Booth #1722) on the show floor on Monday, May 8th at 7:00 p.m. PT and Tuesday, May 9th at 4:30 p.m. PT.
Drop by and say hello! We look forward to seeing you this week.
