#EMC landed a punch on behalf of tech’s old guard after it won a $75m deal to furnish with shiny new on-premises storage hardware, sources have claimed. Salesforce last month took infrastructure services away from its cloud server staff and put them into the hands of AWS in a contract valued at $400m. But company insiders are talking up the relationship between the storage titan, soon to be assimilated by #Dell, and Salesforce. “Any talk of aggressively pursuing #AWS is a lot of hoo-ha for the time being,” one told us. El Reg understands the order included 120 new #VMWAX arrays, which are mostly all-flash with a few SAS, along with 50 DataDomain 9500s. “The deal came in very late in the quarter and depleted inventory for common parts,” a source added. EMC told us it was unable to comment and Salesforce has yet to respond. ®
