EMC World: Tucci focuses on clouds, virtualization

– At the EMC World conference this week, CEO Joe Tucci told attendees that "EMC is going all out on the private cloud," while emphasizing that the future will involve both private and public clouds, according to a recent post on Enterprise Storage Forum.

Taking pot shots at rivals such as Amazon and Google, Tucci noted that companies have concerns about reliability, control and security with public clouds, and that private clouds will alleviate those concerns. And he focused on the combination of VMware, RSA security, and EMC infrastructure and information management.

The key to hybrid implementations of private and public clouds, according to Tucci, is "federation" and data mobility, a lead-in in to the company's VPLEX announcement earlier this week.
