EMC has announced the general availability of their XtremIO all flash arrays. XtremIO was acquired by EMC in May of last year as a way to boost EMC's offerings and visibility in the all flash array arena. EMC showed off "Project X" at VMworld a few months later, touting the unique feature set that let XtremIO bricks run at a consistent and predictable IO and throughput rate over its life and at any available capacity level. This past summer at EMC World, XtremIO were said to be in directed availability, which more or less means being sold to their best and friendliest customers. All that is past us now as XtremIO arrays hit the big time, now generally available for the first time and ready to compete in the competitive and cutthroat high-performance flash storage array segment.
