Enterprises running on IBM z13 demand the highest levels of performance, scalability, and availability, particularly for their data storage subsystems. Today, longtime Brocade OEM partner EMC announced several major innovations with the EMC VMAX and EMC Disk Library for mainframe (DLm) that revolutionize mainframe environments. These innovations from EMC, combined with EMC Connectrix B-series Gen 5 FICON SAN platforms can provide IBM z13 end users with extremely high performance, low latency, and “6 9’s” levels of reliability for their mission critical workloads.
Brocade and EMC have a great history of working together to provide world class FICON attached storage solutions to IBM z Systems end users all over the globe. While that history is important, the future looks even brighter! I will be delivering a presentation as part of the mainframe track at EMC World 2015 and wanted to take this opportunity to share some of the things I will be discussing in the presentation.
