Arun's takeaways from EMC World 2016

Chad Sakacs said EMC will be #1 market share leader in HyperConvergence space by the end of 2016. Nutanix is, of course, the main target. VxRack 1000 announced to cover VMware, OpenStack and Cloud Native segments, using Flex, SDDC and Neutrino Nodes. I saw no signs of worry that these products will negatively affect existing SAN and NAS products. EMC doesn’t seem to care what product sells, as long as it is an EMC product; the customer is free to choose what fits the task. This attitude will serve it well in the infrastructure transition happening right now.
