Citrix Synergy 2016 kicks off here at Las Vegas today. EMC and Citrix have been working together for a while now, and I am happy to announce that a portfolio of EMC products have been verified as part of the Citrix Ready® VDI Capacity Program for Storage Partners.

Citrix Ready VDI Capacity program is designed to help guide customers regarding their VDI storage needs. The program enables Citrix storage partners to test their solutions against a turnkey “VDI Capacity” test environment that contains the necessary compute resources needed to generate a reference deployment for a pre-specified number of desktops (e.g. 1,500- or 3,000-desktop environments), thus demonstrating the appropriate storage performance and capacity with a cost-efficient design.

Citrix Summit 2016 kicks off in Las Vegas today. XtremIO has always been a leading storage platform for Citrix XenDesktop VDI deployments. In fact, a couple of months ago, Citrix and XtremIO jointly held a webinar to showcase how XenDesktop and the XtremIO all-flash array are better together for desktop virtualization. Last month, Citrix published Design Considerations for Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop 7.6 Disaster Recovery leveraging XtremIO Virtual Copies (XVC) and its native integration with the industry’s best data protection solution, RecoverPoint. You can find details about Citrix & XtremIO jointly bringing immense business values to the partner community in my earlier post here.

XtremIO Senior Director of Product Marketing at EMC

In my last blog about XtremIO Integrated Copy Data Management (iCDM), we looked at WHY database, application, development, and infrastructure teams need a new option to consolidate workflow copies and finally solve the business process agility challenges around them. Now I’d like to look briefly at WHAT customers are getting from iCDM and HOW  the XtremIO iCDM stack enables it. And we’re delighted to announce our little holiday gift for all XtremIO customers: free bundled AppSync to further enable your application teams!

XtremIO Solves Copy Data Sprawl Issues That Thwart Oracle Workloads

XtremIO Senior Director of Product Marketing at EMC

This week at Oracle OpenWorld, DBAs, data center admins and application owners are flocking into sessions for new insights on ways to get more business value out of their Oracle applications and databases. Unfortunately, missing from the agenda this year are specific sessions on database sprawl and how to manage it. That is why we feel there’s no better time to take the wraps off a unique, killer feature built into EMC XtremIO all-flash arrays that, until now, hasn’t been widely promoted. XtremIO is the first all-flash array (AFA) product to offer in-memory copy data management (CDM) at the storage layer. We call it integrated Copy Data Management (iCDM), and it’s baked into XtremIO’s core architecture.

From Zero to a Billion in 588 Days – XtremIO Enters the Enterprise Computing Record Books

Josh Goldstein

VP Marketing & Product Management, XtremIO at EMC

EMC Corporation has made history once again. In just over six quarters—actually 588 days—the XtremIO product line achieved $1B in aggregate bookings. This is certainly a record for EMC, and very likely, XtremIO could be the fastest-growing enterprise IT product ever. (We will complete the research to prove this out once we catch our breath. Things have been quite busy lately!)

This monumental achievement can only happen when the right product and the right sales and marketing machine come together at the right time. It’s the story of perfect alignment. EMC saw the future in flash storage, and placed its big bet on all-flash arrays when it acquired XtremIO in 2012.

Virtual desktops for task and knowledge workers are commonplace today. As we think beyond these use cases with next generation VDI desktops, the next frontier to conquer is the virtualized graphics desktops.

So far virtual desktops are delivering limited graphics experiences for demanding 3D applications. Yet, there are many business drivers for this to change. Couple of minutes of high definition video recording can generate gigabytes of data. From digital media entertainment applications like YouTube to collaboration applications with video messaging capabilities like Skype, from multi-billion dollar gaming industry to workstations-caliber applications in CAD, from radiologists looking at medical imaging to security analysts visualizing high resolution satellite data, the need for graphics-rich computing is pervasive today.

Every PC, tablet, smartphone, or laptop has Graphics Processing Unit (or GPU) for graphics acceleration. So why shouldn’t we have GPUs for virtual desktops?

How many devices do you use for work today? And how many of those are your own personal gadgets? I am sure you will not be surprised to know that 43% of us use at least three, and a significant portion of these are “Bring Your Own Device” or “BYOD,” even if that’s not the official policy.

It is not about the devices though. It is about being empowered to choose when, where and how work gets done, having a new level of freedom, flexibility and choice. The days of the 9-5 job are long gone. As the reality of the new “24 hour work day” takes hold, IT must support this mobile work style to make us work better, be more productive, collaborative and creative.

Desktop virtualization – also known as VDI – is the technology that separates the desktop environment and associated application software from the physical client device that is used to access it. VDI gives IT the opportunity to centralize, virtualize and deliver apps, desktops and data with greater control, security, and efficiency, and ultimately lower costs.
