Guest of the Week (9/2)
Chad Sakac, President of VCE, Converged Platform Division, EMC
Congratulations Chad! You are theCUBE Guest of the Week.
This week marked the seventh year for the VMworld conference and theCUBE ‘s coverage of the event. Each of those seven years included an interview with the candid and always fascinating Chad Sakac, president, VCE – Converged Platform Division at EMC.
“TheCUBE has become a fixture of VMworld for me … but I can’t believe it’s been seven years. That’s insane,” Sakac exclaimed, as he joined John Furrier (@furrier) and Stu Miniman (@stu), cohosts of theCUBE, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, at the VMworld 2016 event in Las Vegas.
This week, theCUBE features one of our highest-ranking CUBE Alums, Chad Sakac, as our Guest of the Week.
During the interview, Sakac discussed how customer demand led to VCE realizing it needed to create an “easy button” for turnkey software stacks. He also broke down what the Dell-EMC merger means for VCE; talked about the technology of his cloud mission going forward; and made a few off- and on-the-record predictions. Additionally, he discussed his new role as president of VCE and the necessity of finding talented people with multi-function mojo.
