EMC has once again as raised the bar on storage leadership with the announcement of the new VMAX3.

I like to be known as "Mr. Enterprise Storage Protector" writing, blogging and presenting to the world an ever-changing, always improving product story for enterprise storage (Mainframe) data protection and archiving. You won't ever hear or see me use the words "sexy" when describing our products (that's another story), but you will see that I am passionate about the ability to protect the crown jewels of corporate data. I consider enterprise (aka mainframe) data protection the guardian of insuring that the world doesn't "grind to a halt" as mainframes make airline transactions, stock trades, ATM transactions and many other things critical to our daily existence on the planet. I come to EMC via IBM where I spent more the two decades in storage as a developer and marketer of storage, even competing head-to-head with the products I now grow (yet another story). I call the Tucson Arizona desert home, where I like to sun & swim outside my office door. When I'm not outdoors, in front of customers or sales teams, you'll find me playing and listening to Jazz piano or guitar.
