This week MTI hosted an event to introduce our customers and partners to the benefits of EMC’s new VNX series, as described in my previous blog from Milan earlier this month. My colleague Tony Conway, our Vice President Customer Services, attended the event so I invited him to write a guest blog. Over to Tony…
Chelsea Football Club’s Stamford Bridge stadium was the venue of the MTI Speed2Lead event on Tuesday (September 24), which provided our customers with further insight into EMC‘s recently refreshed VNX series.
The event saw our technical experts Steve Wiggs and Andy Dean discuss the ins and outs of the benefits of the new storage offerings. We then received an EMC perspective on the future of backup from Mark Galpin, EMC’s EMEA Product Marketing Manager, and insight into the bespoke Managed Service wrap that MTI provides to the new EMC portfolio from our own Rob Buckton. Following the informative introductions we were treated to a special tour of the fantastic facilities available to Chelsea’s footballers.
From our day-to-day conversations with customers it’s clear that they are being asked, or rather told, to increasingly do more with less. They are having to increase revenues, lower operational costs and reduce risks – all meaning they need to be more agile in how they manage their IT infrastructures. Throw into the mix the fact that speed of business and data growth are rising exponentially, and it’s clear that businesses need some assistance to maintain a competitive edge in the marketplace.
EMC’s new VNX range provides this helping hand, with a whole host of advanced features that really blow the storage industry out of the water. We can now offer customers up to four times higher levels of performance, 60% less latency and block deduplication, in addition to file deduplication. The very pinnacle of the new product range, the VNX 8000, is capable of running between 6,000 and 8,000 Virtual Machines, can be fitted with up to 1,500 4TB drives and boasts the capacity to do an impressive 1 million IOPS.
In partnership with EMC we now offer our customers the extra horsepower, enhanced protection of data and, possibly most importantly, greater flexibility to take their IT to the next level.
