EMC Unity made a big splash at EMC World last month.  In case you missed it, it’s the new midrange storage platform to delight EMC current and prospective customers in the mid-markets with emphasis on simplicity, flexibility, modern data services, and affordability. This week we bring in EMC Technical Marketing Manager for Unity, Daniel Chiu to walk us through the details of this new platform.  One thing for sure, this is not your father’s VNX!


Daniel Chiu is a Technical Marketing Manager at EMC with strong business and technical acumen in pre-sales engineering, business development, and marketing.  Daniel’s has been with EMC for 10+ years currently focussing on EMC Unity and VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes.

(As for the Pokemon character in the image you will have to ask John Nicholson for it’s credentials.)
