Channel Chiefs: When, And When Not, To Move Storage To The Cloud

Joseph F. Kovar

EMC's Ambulos: When you have a modern data center, you need modern infrastructure. We at EMC believe you’ve got to have converged infrastructure. You need to have flash. You’ve got to have software-defined storage. You’ve got to have scale-out. It’s got to be cloud-enabled.

And you have to have trusted IT. If you look at our portfolio, we play in all those areas. Going back to my choice, one size does not fit all. You have to understand the environment that you’re playing in and say, 'What is the best solution to take advantage of and satisfy the customer challenge that’s in place today?'

Software-defined, it’s a whole different play right now. Commoditized storage. It’s a play, but it’s like Darwinism. If you don’t evolve, and you don’t invest in those areas, then you’re going to be left out. We play in all facets of it, and it gives us, we believe, competitive advantage.
