EMC World 2016 – My personal summary

I just wanted to share my personal summary and my impressions of EMC World 2016 in Las Vegas.

Most emotional moment:

Joe Tucci hands over the scepter to Michael Dell … and leaves the stage while the crowd is cheering with standing ovation … Thanks Joe for everything ūüôā !

The future of the EMC federation?:

The Federation 2.0

The new federation consisting of:

  • Dell
  • Dell EMC
  • VMware
  • Pivotal
  • SecureWorks
  • RSA
  • Virtustream

Personal highlight regarding breakout/guru sessions:

Tobi Knaup (@superguenter) from Mesosphere was presenting their DC/OS, a single platform for running containers, big data and distributed apps. He was also talking about the challenges when dealing with 12-factor apps regarding data persistence. The solution was the use of EMCCode REX-Ray and EMC ScaleIO to provide easy and automated data persistence to running containers.

Have a look:
