From several http://www.informationweek.com/news/storage/systems/240000755" target="_blank">product launches, acquisitions announcements and sneak-peek’s into what’s coming later this year and into 2013, there was something exciting around every corner.
During the conference, we met with several customers and partners including Enterprise Rent-a-Car, New York Life Insurance, Xerox, Boeing, University of Chicago, and Cisco. One common theme we witnessed during the event was that http://servicesangle.com/blog/2012/04/04/more-hosted-hadoop-sungard-offers-big-data-in-the-cloud/" target="_blank">Big Data is real, it’s here and it’s being commercialized in a variety of different ways.
On Wednesday of the conference, our friends at https://twitter.com/#!/BRCDcomm" target="_blank">Brocade invited us to participate in a discussion with https://twitter.com/#!/furrier" target="_blank">John Furrier and https://twitter.com/#!/dvellante" target="_blank">Dave Vellante of theCube. http://www.linkedin.com/pub/michael-de-la-torre/4/884/69b" target="_blank">Michael de la Torre, vice president product management, recovery services at SunGard, sat with the cube to discuss current trends and our position on big data, cloud and disaster recovery.

It was also great to see EMC-ers sporting, with pride, the half white wig (cloud) and half holiday lights (big data) hats designed to mimic the attendee deemed “creepy guy” logo of the show. We didn’t mind the cloud/big data guy though, or the crazy hats – both showed the camaraderie and pride of being an EMC-er!Looking forward to EMC World 2013!
