[ESG Blog] Feeling Transformed after Dell EMC World 2017

When I wrote about my expectations prior to Dell EMC World 2017, which you can read here, I expected this show to be a bit of an anomaly. With the show happening so soon after the one in Austin, I had lowered expectations on the number of new storage product announcements. I thought I would use the time to better investigate how the merger is progressing. I have not been shy to point out that prior to the merger, these two companies had dramatically different cultures.

[ESG Blog] The future of flash is guaranteed

When do we stop using the term "flash storage"? When does it become just "storage"? And when do we as an industry shift the qualifier to "mechanical spinning disk media"? That future may be a lot sooner than you might think. The industry perception of flash storage is transforming from why to why not as I write. At some of the more recent storage industry events I have attended, when a question is asked about the potential of flash storage, the storage administrators in the audience are just as likely as the presenter to speak up and sing the praises of all-flash storage.

[ESG Brief] Implications of Integrating the Dell and EMC Storage Portfolios

ESG recently surveyed 200 storage decision makers about their attitudes towards—and expected actions resulting from—Dell’s acquisition of EMC. This research found that Dell and/or EMC storage customers—and even non-customers—are overwhelmingly bullish about the possibility of a combined Dell-EMC in terms of more traditional data storage offerings, as well as increasingly appealing converged and hyperconverged infrastructure solutions.

[ESG Brief] Software-defined Storage Trends

Despite considerable confusion across the industry around the actual definition of the term software-defined storage (SDS), IT organizations find themselves enticed by the potential benefits the technology offers. Indeed, ESG research reveals that many IT organizations have SDS on their short-term storage architecture roadmaps, especially those with larger and more complex environments. What is driving this early interest—and in some cases, adoption—and how do organizations foresee implementing this alternative approach to traditional storage hardware-based functionality?

2017 Predictions for Storage

"Any time you move your infrastructure somewhere outside of your data center, there's going to be latency involved, and you run in to the speed of light problem," said Scott Sinclair, analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group in Milford, Mass. "The speed of light can only go so fast."
