Dell-EMC updates HCI line to address changing market requirements


Last week Dell and EMC held its first joint customer event since the two tech giants merged. The not-so-originally named Dell-EMC World was a forum for the newly formed company to showcase how it can help its customers navigate the complex world of digital transformation.

The final keynote of the event was by the always-entertaining and equally brilliant Chad Sakac, head of the Converged Platform group. He entertained the crowd by flying onto the stage dressed as Captain Canada, a superhero from the 1970s.

Sakac’s superhero persona is fitting, as the Converged Platform group has seen a meteoric rise since he took the helm of what was once known as “VCE” and is arguably the biggest component of the problems Nutanix has seen since it went public.

The value proposition of converged infrastructure (CI) and hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is to enable customers to deploy the technology quickly and then be able to manage it easily. And in my opinion, no one does this better than Dell-EMC’s Converged Platform division, which is why I think they will be the market leader in HCI.
