EMC Accelerates Journey to the Cloud at Cisco Live
EMC Corporation will provide customers with a unique opportunity to gain practical guidance from EMC Solution experts and their peers, and view real-time demonstrations to accelerate their journey to the cloud (private, public and, ultimately, hybrid clouds) at the Cisco Live London 2012 conference at ICC London ExCeL in London (Jan. 30 - Feb. 3). Cloud computing is transforming IT infrastructure, applications and end-user device layers, ushering in a wave of disruptive change unlike anything the industry has ever experienced.

Key opportunities to listen, learn and gain hands-on experience:

  • EMC and VCE Live Demo: Experts will showcase how Vblock(TM) Infrastructure Platforms from VCE and EMC VPLEX® enable fast and easy application mobility and infrastructure migration in real-time with no downtime or disruption. Utilizing VMware vMotion(TM) and Cisco Data Center Interconnect networking technologies, the "booth hopping" demo will illustrate how the solution removes the physical barriers within, across, and between data centers to facilitate application mobility, high availability, data center resizing, consolidation and relocation, technology refresh, and workload balancing. This solution provides mobility and high availability to virtual applications, virtual machines, virtual networks, and virtual storage. VPLEX is also certified to implement vSphere Metro Storage Cluster (vMSC) for mainstreaming VMware stretched cluster configurations and creating highly available VMware environments over distance.
  • EMC Booth (#P2): Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss best practices and see demonstrations of technology integrations between EMC, Cisco and VCE, as well as meet with subject matter experts to discuss challenges and opportunities they're experiencing with cloud computing. EMC Global Services will highlight capabilities and offerings to accelerate the journey to the cloud and help IT staff transform themselves into next-generation Cloud Architects and Data Scientists.
  • VCE (booth #P4): VCE, a converged infrastructure product and solutions company formed by Cisco and EMC with investments from VMware and Intel, will showcase the capabilities of its Vblock Infrastructure Platforms. Available through a comprehensive ecosystem of partners, Vblock Platforms deliver a complete IT infrastructure that integrates best-of-breed virtualization, networking, compute, storage, security, and management technologies.
  • Sessions: EMC technical speakers joined by partners and customers who will share their real experiences and provide practical guidance on how they are virtualizing their data centers with EMC and Cisco. Key sessions include "Transform your Data Center with Technology from EMC and Cisco," Tuesday at 11:15 and "Best of Breed Virtual Infrastructure: Driving Value from a Global Platform Strategy Based on a Cisco and EMC infrastructure," Thursday at 2:30.
  • EMC VNXe On Stage In The Cisco Live Keynote: EMC VNXe unified storage will be featured during the opening keynote by Padmasree Warrior, Cisco's Chief Technology Officer and SVP Engineering, Tuesday, Jan. 31, 9:30 - 10:45. This live demonstration will highlight Cisco's architectural approach to innovation, its focus on building the Intelligent Network direction of Cisco and why 'good enough' storage is not good enough.
  • Ask The Expert - Cisco Live London Virtual: Wednesday, Feb. 1, 10.00 - 11.00 join us as we explore EMC and Cisco services and validated solutions that help customers optimize their data center infrastructure for virtualization and cloud computing.
"Cloud computing is no longer a matter of debate with customers," said Jeremy Burton, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, EMC. "The urgency has shifted from 'should I build a cloud infrastructure?' to 'how can I take advantage of cloud as quickly and efficiently as possible?' EMC is committed to accelerating our customers' journey to private, public or hybrid clouds through the freedom of choice. Whether customers choose to go a-la-carte or use a converged infrastructure as the backbone, EMC offers choice and flexibility with EMC Proven solutions and industry-leading integration with the leading storage, security, hypervisors, applications, network and servers and Vblock Infrastructure Platforms."
