Poole, Dorset, United Kingdom, 2011/06/13 - Businesses of any size can learn how to make their enterprise run faster, simpler, smarter and more secure than ever before, by attending The Storage Solutions Showcase, free-of-charge, on June 24.
That’s the message from Blue Chip and world leading infrastructure technology company, EMC, which will showcase the VMX ‘unified storage’ suite of products.
Blue Chip sales director, Anthony Green explains: “There are very real and tangible benefits to be had from fine-tuning your IT system to work more efficiently when it comes to data storage. The purpose of this event is for delegates to be the first to see EMC’s VNX products in a hands-on environment, and experience how unified storage can address today’s business challenges and achieve greater efficiencies. It is an opportunity for business owners and IT managers in the South to have direct access to EMC experts and see the technology at work.”
Unified storage achieves cost savings and management simplicity through the consolidation of storage over an existing network, providing both the efficiency of tiered storage and the flexibility required by virtual server environments. EMC’s VNX family delivers industry-leading innovation and enterprise capabilities for file and block storage in a scalable, affordable and easy-to-use solution. As a next-generation storage platform, it combines powerful and flexible hardware with advanced efficiency, management, and protection software to meet the demanding needs of today’s enterprises.
Green adds: “Unified storage solutions consolidate data for applications and virtual servers onto a single, efficient, and powerful platform. They use standard protocols to allow users and applications to access data consolidated on a single device. The result is faster, simpler, smarter and more secure data storage.”
Blue Chip (blueprintdata.com) is hosting the event at C4L, its Bournemouth office located at County Gates, Westbourne, recently acquired to accommodate its expanding work force and data centre offering.
The Storage Solutions Showcase condenses key information into a two-hour program, covering an overview of the new capabilities of the VNX family of products; unified storage for multi-protocol file and block storage; administration simplicity with EMC Unisphere; FAST cache and auto-tiering to get the most out of your Flash drives; and why VNX is the No.1 storage choice for the virtual environment. It will also feature VMware vSphere and a range of Microsoft platforms.
