The storage giant, which just kicked off its EMC World Conference in Las Vegas, is positioning itself in the middle of the so-called hybrid cloud, which utilises both internal and external resources.

Here's the rundown of EMC's product overhaul.

  • The company launched new EMC VMAX enterprise storage arrays. The new systems — VMAX 10K, VMAX 20K and VMAX 40K — include management software to pool storage resources and host applications

  • Isilon OneFS, a scale-out network-attached operating system, was launched. OneFS has been revamped with code to handle unstructured data

  • EMC announced VNX unified storage systems for the mid-market. The VNXe 3150 improves performance, incorporates Flash and simplifies management. EMC also extended a VMware partnership revolving around VNX systems. That pact isn't surprising, since EMC owns VMware

  • Data Doman and Avamar systems were launched to focus on the backup and recovery market

  • The company launched EMC VPLEX virtual storage with its RecoverPoint data-protection software. This combo is aimed at disaster-recovery sites and active datacentres

  • EMC enhanced its EMC Atmos Cloud Platform to focus on big-data improvements and cloud connectors

  • DataBridge was also rolled out. The DataBridge manages both internal IT operations and IT as a service.
