first_imgWhen it comes to life, you can never have too much wine or chocolate… and when it comes to storage, you can never have too much speed or efficiency.That’s why I’m excited to share two incredible Dell EMC storage announcements with you (sadly, no wine or chocolate included) that will open up new opportunities for you in the storage market!  First is the introduction of Dell EMC PowerMax, our new flagship enterprise array as well as two exciting updates to our leading purpose built all flash array, XtremIO.So, if I may, I’ll make the proper introductions:PowerMaxThe highlights of Dell EMC PowerMax are that it is:Fast: in fact, at up to 10 million IOPS and 150GB/sec, it is the world’s fastest storage array[1]  this is enabled by its multi-controller architecture designed for end-to-end NVMe and is ready for storage class memory (SCM)*, which enables new levels of performance today and into the future.Smart: PowerMaxOS includes a built-in machine learning engine that analyzes and forecasts 40 Million data sets in real-time, driving 6 billion decisions per day.   It leverages predictive analytics and pattern recognition to maximize performance with no overhead.Efficient: inline deduplication and enhanced compression enables up to 5:1 data reduction – doubling the rack density[2] with up to 40 percent power savings[3].XtremIOBut wait, there’s more!  I’m also excited about a new entry X-Brick offering, the X2-T, which makes XtremIO more affordable than ever.  It includes all the advanced features and functionality of XtremIO X2, but for a significantly lower price. It’s ideal for customers who are looking for approximately 100TBe to 200TBe, with limited growth expected but who still require high-performance and low latency.I’m also really excited to share that XtremIO X2’s new native replication is unmatched in the industry, it’s:Efficient: Only sends unique data, to minimize WAN bandwidth requirementsConsistent: no performance impact with scale-out architectureSimple as 1, 2, 3: Simple Protection Wizard is built-in to XtremIO HTML5 UIIt’s great news all round for your customers – and I’m sure it will make for great sales opportunities for you, too.For further information, please visit the Dell EMC knowledge center here[1] Based on Dell EMC internal analysis of published bandwidth of the PowerMax 8000 versus competitive mainstream arrays, March 2018.*Coming when SCM drives are available in early 2019[2] Based on Dell EMC internal analysis comparing maximum capacity per floor tile of the PowerMax 8000 against the VMAX 950F, March 2018.[3] Based on Dell EMC internal analysis, March 2018, comparing a fully configured PowerMax 8000 vs. a fully configured VMAX 950F. Actual power savings will vary.last_img read more

Syracuse men’s basketball opponent preview: What to know about Georgetown

first_img Published on December 15, 2016 at 11:57 am Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+ Old Big East rivals get together again on Saturday at noon, as two teams off to a less than ideal start search for a much-needed nonconference win. It’s Pearl Washington Day during Syracuse’s (6-3) matchup with Georgetown (6-4) in the Carrier Dome, where the university will honor the late Orange great who helped shaped the rivalry with the Hoyas.Here’s everything you need to know about John Thompson III’s team before the game.All-time series: Syracuse owns a 49-42 advantageLast time they played: In Mike Hopkins’ first game as interim head coach during Jim Boeheim’s nine-game suspension last year, Georgetown beat Syracuse at the Verizon Center, 79-72. It was the Orange’s second straight loss after starting the season 6-0. Michael Gbinije’s 23 points led four Orange in double figures, as Tyler Roberson, Trevor Cooney and Dajuan Coleman chipped in 15, 11 and 10, respectively. Big man Bradley Hayes, who is on this year’s team as well, led the Hoyas with 21 points and eight rebounds in the win.The Georgetown report: The Hoyas have won their last four after starting the season 2-4, a stretch that did include a 65-61 win against then-No. 13 Oregon in the Maui Invitational. Like the Orange, Georgetown lost to Wisconsin by double digits, 73-57. The Hoyas are led by Rodney Pryor and L.J. Peak, who combine to average 37 points per game. They are the only two players seeing over 22 minutes per game, as Thompson’s rotation can go as many as 10 or 11 deep.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAccording to Kenpom.com, 27.8 percent of Georgetown’s points come from the foul line. That’s the third-highest mark in that category nationally, so expect the Hoyas to attack inside the Syracuse zone more often than not. Georgetown’s 77.5-percent clip from the charity stripe ranks 18th in the country.How Syracuse beats the Hoyas: Even though Pryor may be the best 3-point shooter on the floor Saturday, Syracuse is better off forcing the Hoyas to chuck from deep rather than taking away the 3 and allowing them to get in the lane. With such a knack for getting to the line and hitting from the line, Georgetown – who is no stranger to breaking the zone – could wear down the Orange if whoever is atop the 2-3 lets ball-handlers split or lets a big operate from the foul line a la Nigel Hayes of Wisconsin. It’s unlikely Pryor, or anyone else on Georgetown, hurts Syracuse from long range like Boston University’s Cedric Hankerson (34 points on 10-of-20 from 3), so SU has a better chance of winning a game it already should if it doesn’t let the Hoyas thread the paint.Stat to know: 24.3 – According to Kenpom, sophomore big man Jessie Govan is used on 24.3 percent of possessions while on the court. That’s the highest mark on the team, even though he plays under 20 minutes per game.Player to watch: Rodney Pryor, guard, No. 23The graduate transfer from Robert Morris leads the Hoyas with 20.6 points per game in 31.5 minutes per contest. He shoots a lights out 52.5 percent from deep (on a team-high 61 attempts) and boasts a 57.6 field-goal percentage overall. Pryor was an All-Northeastern Conference first team selection a season ago, and has been a rare bright spot in the Hoyas rough start to the 2016-17 season. Commentslast_img read more
