How do VNX, VNXe and Isilon fit in the EMC storage portfolio? Let’s take a moment for a high-level review of the EMC storage portfolio. Effective backup and recovery is about doing it quickly and efficiently. In the Scale-out block. market, it’s about scalability and availability for block based applications. In the Unified storage market, It’s about simple and efficient file and/or block. And lastly, in the Scale-out file and Object market, it’s about scalability, operational simplicity and automated distribution of file or object based data. <click> And EMC has the best of breed back and recovery products in Data Domain, Avamar and Networker. EMC has the best of breed scale out block family in the VMAX family EMC has the best of breed Unified Storage family in the VNX and VNXe And EMC has the best of breed scale-out file and object platforms in Isilon and Atmos. So as you can see, EMC has the strongest storage product portfolio in the industry – bar none. And we need to ensure sell the right product for the Job. Now let’s focus on the mid-tier products, namely VNXe, VNX and Isilon.
In summary, the VNXe series systems are simple, efficient, and affordable unified storage designed for the IT generalist who needs to be up and running quickly. It’s easier than ever. And the VNX series of systems offer the most scalability and flexibility, and is the most powerful midtier unified storage solution. It’s reliable, as always.
Cloud computing promises not only a more efficient IT infrastructure but also a greater level of agility, allowing IT to be more responsive to business requirements. EMC now offers three paths to the private cloud: Build your own: The ultimate in customizability, this path enables you to select the specific best-of-breed parts you want. It gives you unmatched flexibility by allowing you to design a solution to your exact specifications. Although it provides for ultimate flexibility, it requires a significant amount of expertise, overhead, and time to deploy and manage. Vblock: Converged infrastructure offers a single point of management and support, and is pre-integrated. The high degree of standardization inherent to Vblock platforms makes Vblock an ideal infrastructure foundation for large enterprise, service providers, and public sector customers, allowing them to transform to virtualized environments based upon VMware, Cisco, and EMC technologies. It is the most transformative and simplest to manage option available on the market. For customers looking at some of the benefits that converged infrastructure offers, EMC offers Vblock. VSPEX: VSPEX is a more open solution built on proven infrastructure. VSPEX significantly enhances EMC’s ability to offer customers true choice in terms of the hypervisor layer, servers, EMC storage, and networking components. VSPEX offers some of the benefits of a converged infrastructure while offering you the flexibility to choose best-of-breed components that fit your existing IT infrastructures. VSPEX solutions use VNX and VNXe for the storage component.
VSPEX also provides more opportunities because it helps drive a more strategic sale. You can now sell complete solutions to your customers resulting in a higher attach rate of components, higher deal sizes, and at the same time, become more strategic in the eyes of IT. Sell proven solutions that offer validated infrastructure stacks and focus on driving value to the business applications like Oracle, Microsoft and SAP. VSPEX also can grow the sale. While leveraging the anchor components of VNX and VNXe at the storage layer, and VMware and Microsoft at the Hypervisor layer, VSPEX allows the customer to create customized solutions using the entire EMC portfolio – such as RSA, Data Domain, or Avamar. You maintain better account control as you can deliver the optimal components within the solution while preserving their margins.
Here is the chart of program requirements for Partners in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Spain and the United Kingdom. Please notice the Isilon requirements that have been added to the Consolidate Specialty. To maintain your Specialty designation going into 2014, you must have both VNX and Isilon Technology Architect certifications and Advanced Sales accreditations.
