What’s new with CloudIQ and XtremIO

Back in august 2018, I blogged about CloudIQ that now support XtremIO, if you are new to CloudIQ, I highly encourage you to first read the post here

https://xtremio.me/2018/08/27/vmworld-2018-xtremio-integration-with-cloudiq/ but in a nutshell, CloudIQ is the Software as a Service (SaaS) platform offered by Dell EMC that allows customers to manage all of their EMC arrays in a single pane of management.
