EMC World 2013, Day 3 Recap

Today, EMC Isilon president Bill Richter took to the EMC World stage and gave his keynote speech on Isilon: Scale-out NAS Innovation Today, Business Innovation Tomorrow.  As I mentioned in yesterday’s blog, the keynote included a customer panel with Rackspace, Bosch, and MLB, as well as a conversation with Isilon’s resident mad scientist and CTO, Nick Kirsch.

Here’s a quick roundup of the keynote buzz, captured from Twitter:

Immediately following the keynote, Bill answered your Twitter questions live during his Backstage session with John Roese and dove deeper into the transformation squeeze of IT, new OneFS features, and where he sees EMC Isilon and scale-out NAS heading in the next few years.
