First EMC World For Former Intel Exec Pat Gelsinger
EMC World marked the debut of Pat Gelsinger publicly wearing EMC attire.
EMC in September recruited Gelsinger, its president and COO of information infrastructure products, from Intel where he served as senior vice president and co-general manager of Intel's Digital Enterprise Group.
Gelsinger, right, appeared on-stage with Chad Sakac, vice president of the VMware technical alliance at EMC, to demonstrate several new products, including the VPLEX appliance for virtualizing storage over multiple data centers, and the Ionix Unified Information Management software which allows pooling of Vblock storage, server, and networking resources.
Sakac said UIM automates a lot of the processes related to managing those resources. “We’re abstracting at the mundane parts of the job,” Sakac said. “Nobody wants mundane.”
