There were some great conversations budding between EMC representatives and the solution provider attendees in EMC's demo room. EMC was demonstrating its VNXe platform, which is its entry-level unified storage platform designed for SMBs.
"Specifically, we are presenting the VNXe 3150 with configurations starting at $8,400," said Joseph Catalanotti (not pictured), unified storage product marketing manager at EMC. The VNXe 3150 is managed with a platform called Unisphere, which is designed for the IT generalist so IT executives don't need a lot of specialization around virtualization to configure or provision storage for their applications. "It's all done through easy, simple, intuitive, wizard-based interfaces that are based upon application best practices," said Catalanotti.
