Magic Technology Lands EMC in Gartner Magic Quadrant

first_imgLast week, Gartner released their first ever Magic Quadrant for Solid State Arrays (SSAs), also known as All-Flash Arrays (AFAs).  We’re proud to have EMC recognized in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant (Figure 1), a testament to EMC’s flash strategy and the execution of bringing XtremIO to market near the end of last year.  Flash arrays have been around for quite a while, anywhere from years to decades depending on the vendor.  So why is Gartner only now beginning to track a Magic Quadrant specific to them?I believe the answer is straightforward.  Until recently, flash arrays were very expensive, very limited devices that were targeted only at boosting performance where price was no object.  The market for them was small as were the use cases.  They weren’t enterprise-ready, serving only a niche performance market.  EMC never entered this niche.  At our scale you need to be bolder to move the needle and that’s why in 2012 we acquired XtremIO, bringing it to market in November 2013.Since then, in well under a year, EMC has surpassed all others in the SSA/AFA market and XtremIO has assumed the leadership position.  Why is this?  I believe this answer is also straightforward.  XtremIO is magic technology.“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” – Arthur C. ClarkeShareIt’s easy to think about XtremIO as just another flash array that’s great for boosting performance on some critical application.  But if that’s the only way you think about it, you’re missing the huge value it brings across your data center.  It’s common for XtremIO customers to begin with a targeted workload in mind, but quickly find out they can expand the use cases for the array with additional applications and workloads, and to revise their flash strategy to use XtremIO across the board.  Consider what a couple of XtremIO customers recently said:“When you’re doing a 100,000 IOPS why wouldn’t I put everything on this? We get a boatload of business value for OLTP.  I’m having a hard time saying ‘why not?’” – Steve Vogler, USI Holdings“After our great experience with VDI, we had a SQL server that was on physical infrastructure that took 6-7 hours to process and load.  I reached out to the application owners, and said ‘Let’s try to put this in a virtual infrastructure’.  I gave them a virtual machine with less CPU and memory but on the XtremIO flash storage array.  It outperformed the physical server by 2-3x.” – Craig Englund, Boston ScientificShareTo these customers, XtremIO is magic.  It transforms their datacenters.  It transforms their businesses.  It transforms they way they spend their time because they no longer worry about provisioning or tuning complexity.  If you haven’t taken a hard look at XtremIO, you’re missing out on one of the most important technological shifts to come along in a decade.Don’t wait any more!

BNP Paribas Securities Services continues expansion with Swiss division

first_imgBNP Paribas Securities Services, the French bank’s pension scheme custodian business, is to launch a depositary banking service in Switzerland.The move will see the provider focus on depositary services for its asset-owning clients domiciled in Switzerland.This latest expansion follows the launch of a similar service in the UK and the Netherlands.In late 2013, it also confirmed the purchase of Commerzbank’s depositary banking arm, giving it access to the German market. Under the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD), which came into force in July last year, investment funds not using a UCITS approach much appoint a depositary bank.This is to ensure the safekeeping, cash monitoring and oversight of assets.As AIFMD funds grow in number, with the regulatory rollout continuing across the EU, the number of pension schemes requiring these services increases, fuelling BNP’s strategy.Garrick Smith, who heads up the bank’s new Switzerland operation, cited growing demand for a consolidated approach for operational services such as depotbank and custody.“We have already won our first depotbank mandate in the market, from one of the biggest independent fund of fund managers in Switzerland,” he said. “With this expansion, we underline our commitment to the Swiss market.”This follows a trend of BNP expanding services on the back of changes to regulation.In October 2012, it announced the launch of a local custody service in the US, providing post-trade services to institutional investors.At the time, the bank said the Dodd Frank Act, which implemented reform in response to the financial crisis, created a “whole range of opportunities”.last_img read more

First signs of change

first_imgOEEC takes place on 27 and 28 October 2020 in Amsterdam. In order to ensure safe connections at the event, the organisation is working on concepts such as wider aisles, one-way lanes, set routes, timeslots for visitors, sanitation stations and reservation systems in different areas. This year OEEC will be different than the previous years. However, we are convinced that OEEC 2020 will be a successful edition in which virtual and face-to-face connections are combined. This year it is not business as usual, however the first signs of change are starting to appear.  Last week’s press conference in the Netherlands announced that events can take place again starting from the first of July. This is great news! There will still be some restrictions with regard to the COVID-19 situation. For Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference (OEEC), this means that we will follow the directions of the government and the protocol of the event industry to ensure your safety. last_img read more
