Dell EMC The Source: Intelligence You Can Trust. An insider’s perspective on the Dell EMC portfolio of Products, Technologies and Solutions as they relate to the challenges faced by our customers and the ever changing technology landscape.

Dec 9, 2015

The recent EMC Forum events in both New York and Dallas featured a mainframe breakout track.  That’s right, mainframe is back; actually, it never went away.  The breakout track included:  “Mainframe: EMC Storage Solutions Vision and Strategy for z Systems”, “VMAX Mainframe Performance Update: Turbocharging Your Mission-Critical infrastructure with zBoost and zBoost PAV Optimizer”, ‘FAST: Game-Changing Storage Tiering for the Mainframe, “Disk Library for Mainframe (DLm) Concepts, Product and Performance Update”, and “Mainframe Birds of a Feather Discusses EMC Storage”

I tracked down one of the masterminds behind the highly successful track, a longtime friend of mine, David Kipp.  David is the Go-To-Market Lead for EMC Mainframe Solutions.  We spent some time talking about the track at the Dallas EMC Forum.
