Viva Big Data

The big data, big cloud, big event starts this Sunday in Las Vegas, Nevada. The annual EMC conference called EMC World gets underway at the Venetian & Palazzo Conference site. It will be a gathering of right around 13,000 technology professionals, roaming the halls, listening to technical presentations, seeing new products and getting a bit more of the Virtual Geek named Chad Sakac.

How many people did you say?

That is correct, 13,000 people from all around the world. The sessions will be full, the pavillion will be buzzing and every imaginable smart device will be seen in each of their hands. If you think about it, each one will likely have a smart phone. I am guessing eighty percent of them will be bringing their laptop computer. Of those eighty percent, nearly three fourths of them will carry a secondary device such as an iPad, Nook, Kindle, or some other tablet.

Each one of those devices will be connecting back to some server transmitting data back and forth. There will be pictures taken and shared. There will be emails rushing some kind of excitement back to co-workers and in response to family back home. Folks will be searching the internet for all kinds of information about the latest product they heard about on the trade floor. And where will that data reside?

How did you hear about the Vegas happenings?

Nearly every one of those 13,000 people will post at least one Facebook status update. Most every one of these people also have a LinkedIn account, Google+, MySpace, or other "place favorite here" posting service. In fact, the vast majority will probably tweet in one hundred forty or less characters, something new, cool and awesome from @EMCWorld.

You are also going to see pictures and read words from the very many different blogs. There is my own web blog called Primms Attitude, broadcasting updates from the blogger's lounge. There will also be the Virtual Geek, Chucks Blog, and the Storage Anarchist to name just a few. Lots of words, lots of data and where will the data reside?

How will you store all of those pictures from Las Vegas?

With this many techno-geek people added to the sheer excitement of Las Vegas, the idea that "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" will not apply. You know people are going to take pictures and write stories about everything that happens. There will be tons of data that needs to be stored simply from this amazing five day event.

And the large majority of all that data, flowing out from smart phones, iPads, laptops and every other imaginable device will get stored on EMC storage arrays. There will be data stored on the VMAX, VNX and VNXe storage systems. Others will end up on Isilon storage arrays or even Iomega storage devices. Yes, every one of these is an EMC storage product and they are the best in the industry.

Are you surprised or did not realize EMC is the global leader in data storage. Nearly everything you do in life generates some amount of data. And a large majority of that data gets stored on EMC storage systems. Pretty amazing when you think about it.

So to all the 13,000 people attending @EMCWorld next week, be safe. But also enjoy the sights and sounds of EMC products, EMC technology, and EMC hospitality. It will be a great week and what happens @EMCWorld doesn't have to stay in Vegas.
