Introducing XtremIO Integrated Copy Data Management and How It will transform Your Infrastructure, Your Operations, and Your Business Process Agility

Beginner

Monday 1:30 – 2:30

Wed. 3:00 – 4:00

60 min.

Everybody knows that all-flash arrays are ideal for running database workloads – this is because flash is fast. But a database application is much more than just the production instance. Considerations in storage planning need to be made for additional copies of the database or application for things development and test, analytics and reporting, operations, and local recovery. Historically all-flash arrays have been too expensive to house these additional copies. Now, with innovations built into the EMC XtremIO all-flash array, these copies can be space-efficiently consolidated, operating at production levels of high performance, and managed easily in an automated fashion. The result is simplicity, lower cost application development, and faster software development cycles bringing agility and true transformation into your IT. Learn all about it with real customer examples in this session.
