Cloud computing and modern software development techniques are transforming industries and delivering radically improved consumer experiences
To respond, more traditional organizations are modernizing their IT for greater speed, efficiency and agility while also investing in new modern data center architectures to support them
EMC today launched several new technologies to lay the foundation for these initiatives
EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC) today introduced new foundational offerings designed to support and accelerate customers’ digital transformation initiatives and address the four major pillars of the modern data center – flash, scale-out, software-defined and cloud-enabled. New offerings include the new Native Hybrid Cloud™ (NHC™) platform and major updates to DSSD™ D5™.
New technology-centric companies born in the digital era are leveraging cloud computing, modern software development techniques and an array of smart connected devices to enter and disrupt almost every industry, delivering radically improved consumer experiences. To respond, more traditional organizations must re-kindle innovation within their own IT teams and build out new modern data center architectures to support them. These architectures and infrastructure are very different from what resides in most IT environments today.
