At EMC World 2014, EMC Corporation announced a new wave of innovations that enable the blended benefits of a public and private cloud, delivering customers with the ease-of use, agility, security and control of a hybrid cloud.
As the cloud, social, mobile and Big Data mega trends continue unabated, organizations in all industries, and of all sizes, are developing next-generation applications and better harnessing Big Data analytics to redefine themselves. This is leading to the emergence of the 3rd Platform of IT. The data growth generated by the 3rd Platform of IT is also resulting in a surge of opportunities as well as complexity surrounding regulations and governance.
Against this background, EMC recently announced a host of hybrid cloud innovations to help organizations better manage their traditional enterprise applications; deploy next-generation applications faster, with new levels of efficiency and speed; and more easily manage their information.
New Technology Highlights
EMC Hybrid Cloud Solution: IT organizations are faced with two binary choices: the speed and agility of public cloud services and the control and security of private cloud infrastructure. The new EMC Hybrid Cloud Solution enables customers to quickly, easily, and cost-effectively build a hybrid cloud that embodies the best of both worlds. The new solution delivers faster application provisioning and deployment, greater business agility, and increased levels of IT automation.

EMC Syncplicity: Syncplicity adds Syncplicity Connector for SharePoint, enabling business users to access and edit their SharePoint files using the Syncplicity app on their mobile device, increasing workforce productivity via anytime, anywhere collaboration with a single, gold-standard mobile interface. Syncplicity also added StorageVault Authentication to better protect shared files.
EMC InfoArchive: InfoArchive is now generally available, delivering a unified archive that preserves the value of enterprise information. Based on open standards, InfoArchive ingests unstructured content, structured data and hybrid records at the same time.
David Goulden, CEO, EMC Information Infrastructure: “The hybrid cloud is compelling because it allows customers to run applications easily and cost-effectively inside or outside of their data centers. It also mitigates the control and security tradeoffs they face with a public cloud. EMC hybrid cloud innovations – and our strategy – are designed to deliver service providers and customers not only the control and security of a private cloud, but also the ease-of use, agility and efficiencies they require as they continue to redefine their IT.”
