EMC has been championing the cause of software-defined, scale-out storage by transporting IT organizations and enterprises from a world of siloed infrastructures to the brave new world of converged, seamless compute and storage with ScaleIO. In a recent study, Wikibon predicted the overall growth of the Server SAN market to be about a 23% CAGR from 2014 to 2026, with a faster growth of 38% from 2014 to 2020. As EMC continues delivering software-defined, scale-out, block storage on commodity hardware, customers are experiencing the benefits of extreme performance, massive scalability and superior elasticity. If you still haven’t jumped on the server SAN bus, 2015 is the year to get a pilot project moving. For example, Itrica Corporation, a service provider, claims they’re saving 50% on storage costs and operating overhead has been significantly reduced since deploying ScaleIO. See the video here. Customers are asking: “How easy would it be to deploy software-defined block storage using commodity hardware if you could procure and be supported by a single vendor?” The answer is: “very easy.”
With the advent of the ScaleIO Node, customers can choose how they wish to consume ScaleIO — the software goodies or the nodes with the software bundled inside. Even DIYers can choose their options. The availability of both ScaleIO Node and the ScaleIO software strengthens EMC’s tradition of offering customers choice, and reinforces ScaleIO’s market lead in the fast-growing market of software-defined storage solutions.
