October 23, 2013 12:32 PMViPR, EMC's latest storage offering, promises to usher in the era of software-defined storage, but the company has some work to do to make its promise a reality.
May 22, 2012 12:57 PMEMC's definition of cloud computing may not be the same as yours. Here's what the company means, and a look at its cloud storage offerings.
February 11, 2011 05:59 PMThere is no doubt that EMC has shipped some Atmos storage since its introduction. Yes, EMC has Atmos. And the company claims that Atmos is specifically designed for the cloud. However, I believe that there are fundamental issues with the way EMC sells Atmos to customers. First of all, if Atmos is cloud storage, then it should be sold on a usage basis. Customers should be charged only for what they use--not for petabytes of capacity up front. After all, isn't that the whole premise of cloud? Lowering your capital expenditures and shifting to a utility model? It makes me wonder if EMC is slowly becoming the Amdahl of Cloud Storage.
