Dell EMC a year later


A year has passed since the Dell EMC acquisition. We examine the positives, negatives and uncertainties of the deal. Did Dell buy the world's biggest storage vendor, or did EMC round out its infrastructure strategy? Was the timing of the Dell EMC acquisition good? Public cloud use has increased at a remarkable rate. Now, it's a matter of when public cloud adoption will match on-site infrastructure. Vendor lock-in is a top concern. Emerging multicloud primary storage products mitigate this by providing dataservices simultaneously across multiple public clouds. The open source software movement could change the face of storage. With the commoditization of servers and storage, costs are low and reliability is high enough to use off-the-shelf components to build platforms with software-defined storage products. This trend is reducing dependence on proprietary storage hardware and software.
