Gartner Recognizes EMC as #1 NAS and Unified Storage, Worldwide Market Leader in 2012

first_imgIn March 2013 Jeremy Burton wrote about Gartner’s release of an all-new “General Purpose Disk Array” Magic Quadrant. It took a new, consolidated view of vendors’ storage lines— evaluating mid-range storage, scale-out NAS, and enterprise storage offerings holistically.  For EMC, that means the VNX, Isilon, and VMAX solutions. EMC was positioned in the leaders quadrant.Recently, Gartner released a follow-on Market Share Analysis report that focuses on the worldwide consolidated NAS/unified storage market in its “Market Share Analysis: Network-Attached Storage and Unified Storage, Worldwide, 2012”. Gartner, again, named EMC the leader in storage market share — achieving the #1 in unified (with VNX unified solutions) and #1 in NAS (with VNX and Isilon).According to Gartner’s findings for this fast growing market segment:EMC is the number one vendor, with 47.9% of the market share in 2012EMC grew its market share to 47.9% in 2012 – up from 41.7% in 2011The next closest vendor lost market share in 2012 – down to 30.3% from 36% in 2011.What seems obvious to me, with this latest market share analysis, is not the just the 47.9% market share—it’s that EMC grew market share significantly from 2012.  This means, as a company, we believe EMC is not only delivering our customers and partners a vision that strongly aligns to their business needs, but we are also executing on this vision,  delivering NAS and unified solutions that lay a solid foundation to handle both today’s—and tomorrow’s—midrange storage demands.  Did you know that…EMC has shipped more than 71,000 VNX arraysIsilon has shipped over half an exabyte in the first six months of 2013We’re honored to be #1… and we’re committed to delivering customers what they’re asking for: Solutions that solve real business problems.We’ve made the new Gartner Market Share Analysis  available at no cost.Download the report today!last_img read more

ACLU, for first time, elects Black person as its president

first_imgNEW YORK (AP) — Deborah Archer, a law professor at New York University with expertise in civil rights and racial justice, has become the first Black person in the 101-year history of the American Civil Liberties Union to be elected its president. The ACLU announced Monday that Archer was elected in a virtual meeting of the organization’s 69-member board of directors. She succeeds Susan Herman, a professor at Brooklyn Law School who had served as president since 2008. The fight against racial injustice is expected to be a top priority for the ACLU now that Donald Trump’s presidency is over. While Trump was in office, the ACLU filed more than 400 lawsuits and other legal actions against his administration.last_img

Lambert still looking up

first_img Press Association Lambert added: “His teams are always hard-working sides. I thtink if anyone knows his sides, he wants people to put an honest day’s work in. “I know the way his teams work. I played against Stuttgart when he was manager there. “He might not have Premier League experience but he’s coached some really big clubs in a really big league so he’ll know how to handle it. “To be fair to Fulham, I watched them the other day and they are still a really good side.” Fulham’s on-loan Darren Bent is prevented from playing against his parent club but Magath has revealed that working with the striker has fulfilled the wish of his son Leonard. Leonard, 16, advised his father when he was managing clubs in the German Bundesliga including Bayern Munich, Wolfsburg and Schalke to sign Bent, his favourite player. Magath insists that now he has inherited Bent following his appointment by the Cottagers, he may have a key role to play in the quest for Barclays Premier League survival. “Darren is a very good player – he’s my son’s favourite player!” he said. “He told me for six or seven years that I had to buy Darren Bent. “I’ve known him for years and he’s a very good striker. If he has the training sessions he could be a player that can help us.” Magath and Bent appeared to be at loggerheads following Sunday’s 3-1 home defeat by Everton as mixed messages emerged over the forward’s fitness. Having selected Bent on the bench and started unknown 17-year-old Moussa Dembele, Magath stated he was carrying a knock that prevented him from coming on, a claim that was denied by the player. A family bereavement forced Bent to miss the 1-1 draw with West Brom on February 22 and he has made only two appearances in the five matches since. Adding to the disquiet at Craven Cottage are reports that Shahid Khan is ready to sack Magath with Fulham five points adrift of safety with just six games remaining. Magath said: “There are no problems with Darren. We had a special situation and he had some days off for private reasons and that unsettled him. “He didn’t join us for the game against West Brom so there were a few things that were not really good. “On Friday he stopped training and left the pitch to see the medical staff. He didn’t train. “On Saturday he was better and he told me ‘I’m fine’ so I decided to name him on the bench because he’s a player we need. “But the risk of letting him play was too high because he had been unable to train on Friday. It’s normal you have discussion about such things. “Now somebody was writing I’m out. You always have such subjects where nobody knows where it comes from. It doesn’t matter. “He came to me on Tuesday and we talked together. It’s fine for me.” Successive 4-1 losses to Stoke and Manchester United have left some at the club casting nervous eyes over their shoulders towards the relegation battle. And the news that striker Christian Benteke has been ruled out for the rest of the season with an Achilles tendon injury has hardly improved the mood ahead of Saturday’s Villa Park clash with rock-bottom Fulham. Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert insists back-to-back defeats have not diminished his desire to achieve a top-half finish in the Barclays Premier League. But Lambert is adamant his side should look up instead of down and sees the six-point gap to the 10th-placed Potters far from unbridgeable. Speaking before the extent of Benteke’s injury became apparent, Lambert told Villa’s official website: “To be ambitious you’ve always got to look at what’s above you to try to catch the teams ahead. “There’s not much in that little group there with West Ham and Stoke. “I also know it’s a tough, tough league and you have to be right on it to get a result. Saturday’s game will be no different.” Villa are in far from perfect shape as they prepare to face Felix Magath’s Cottagers, who are still stranded at the bottom of the table with bleak prospects of survival. Besides the absent Benteke, Villa could also be without Gabby Agbonlahor, who is battling to recover from a sickness bug. But there is better news over Nathan Baker, who has recovered from the foot injury which sidelined him in last week’s 4-1 defeat at Old Trafford, while Karim El Ahmadi is also set to return to contention after a thigh strain. Despite Lambert’s insistence on positivity, Villa are not yet safe and the Scot’s previous playing experience in Germany means he is fully aware of his opposite number Magath’s managerial capabilities. last_img read more

Campaigner’s support for Balotelli

first_img The text then read: “Be like Mario. He’s an Italian plumber, created by Japanese people, who speaks English and looks like a Mexican” and went on to describe a black man and a Jewish person. After people criticised the post, he deleted it before writing on his Twitter account that his mother was Jewish. And he issued a statement to apologise, explaining he was trying to be “anti-racist with humour”. Ged Grebby from Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC), an educational charity which uses football to promote an anti-racism message, was encouraged by Balotelli’s immediate apology. That was in contrast to other senior figures in football who have been criticised for making racist remarks recently, but who had not fully apologised, he said. Mr Grebby, who is the campaign’s chief executive, said: “I think it says something about Mario that he had the decency to do that.” Mr Grebby said the charity condemned Balotelli’s deleted post, and said it could not be justified. But a major message of SRtRC was to get people to recognise their own racist behaviour, to admit it and then to change. “With Mario, almost immediately, he deleted the post he had done, recognised his mistake and said sorry,” Mr Grebby said. Controversial Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has received the support of a leading anti-racism campaigner – because he immediately apologised for apparently making a racist and anti-Semitic post. The Italy forward has until 6pm on Friday to respond to the Football Association, which has asked him for an explanation, before a decision will be made whether to charge him. Balotelli, 24, had reposted an image from the computer game Super Mario on his Instagram page with the heading “Don’t be a racist”. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Dyche: We were due some luck

first_img Boss Dyche said: “You need a scratch of luck and we got that with the goal. “It can’t be said for the penalty save because I think it’s an absolutely outstanding save rather than a miss, and their lad (Victor Wanyama) put one over later in the game. “They are the margins and we’ve been on the wrong side of those margins at times. Overall I thought the luck that went in our favour was well deserved. “There’s a belief about what we do and I’ve made it clear – we didn’t come into this division thinking we’re going to have 500 passes a game and rip teams to shreds. “We knew we’d have to find different ways of winning. We did that last year. We’ve taken that mentality into this year. “I thought some of the football in the first half was very good, with pockets of it in the second half. That’s our fifth clean sheet in 15 games, which is a marker in itself at this level.” Barnes also scored the winner against Hull and appears to have established himself as the regular strike partner for leading scorer Danny Ings. Dyche signed the 25-year-old from Brighton in January, and he said: “He keeps going, he’s an awkward customer. “He can be clean at times, sometimes not so clean at others, but he’s very awkward at this level. He’s a newcomer, people won’t know much about him and he sticks at it. “His stats are through the roof and he’ll give you everything.” The game looked like a good chance for Southampton to get back on track after successive defeats to three of the Premier League’s big boys but it was not to be. Manager Ronald Koeman hailed Burnley’s “unbelievable spirit” but was disappointed with the penalty, saying: “It’s good goalkeeping but it’s a bad penalty.” Southampton had 60 per cent of the possession and 15 shots to Burnley’s seven but Koeman was left frustrated that again they could not make their chances count. “I’m very disappointed,” he said. “I think it’s the same story as the last few games. “We played well. The start of the game was difficult, they started a little bit better. They played direct football, battled for the second ball, but I think after 20 minutes we controlled the game. “We didn’t create a lot in the first half but from the start of the second half until missing the penalty we played great football. We had the best chances, had total domination and I waited for the goal. “We had good chances to kill the game at that moment and one mistake – it’s our throw-in and it ended with a goal for Burnley. “Why we didn’t win today, why we didn’t win against Manchester United, and why we had a run of winning games, it’s all about scoring chances and more mistakes in defence. “Maybe it’s a little bit confidence now as well after the four defeats.” Press Association Ashley Barnes’ deflected shot in the 73rd minute, after Tom Heaton had earlier saved Dusan Tadic’s penalty, earned the Clarets a 1-0 victory over Southampton. It was enough to lift Burnley out of the relegation zone, at least until QPR play Everton on Monday. Sean Dyche felt Burnley deserved the luck that helped them to a third win in six Premier League games.last_img read more
