It’s less than a month until EMC World 2013, the buzz is in the air! Seems like yesterday I was editing the video from EMC World 2012, both the Flash Zone and catching up on Microsoft and Flash in the EMC Bloggers Lounge . Which included an early look at the
EMC/LSI/Cisco Partnership, and closing party footage.
The FLASH.NEXT theme continues at EMC World 2013, Lead Your
Transformation “The X Factor”. The X
Factor Booth will be more than noticeable in the exhibit hall. Make sure you stop by to review the updated EMC Flash Strategy and have a chance to ‘Grab Some Cash” in the “Cash in a Flash” cash cube. The X Factor Theater will provide EMC Flash Strategy presentations along with an overview of XtremSF, XtremSW Cache and XtremIO: Powering the hands-on Labs. The X Factor will also showcase 4 product workstations
and demonstrations including: XtremSF Demo, XtremSW Cache Demo, XtremIO (101)
and XtremIO Solutions in action. Keep your eyes open for a few other surprises as well.
In addition to The X Factor booth, the EMC Flash Products Division will be conducting 6 EMC World Breakout Sessions. (Each repeated at least once…) Check your schedule for

But wait there’s more… FLASH.NEXT will be the focus of the Wednesday Keynote address (2:30-3:30). You won’t want to miss it. Nnot only will customers be on stage reviewing how EMC flash is changing real world environments, but you’ll have the opportunity to see a sneak peak of XtremSW Cache 2.0 and an XtremIO in action. Giving away a few iPad minis isn’t bad either!
If you’re attending, it’s also your opportunity to catch up with our flash engineers, roadmaps, inside information and flash strategy future. (Warning: NDA may be required). Formal meeting arrangements can be made or just stop by “The X Factor”. Contact me
