EMC WORLD 2014—LAS VEGAS, MAY 5, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today at EMC World 2014, EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) announced ViPR 2.0 — a Software-Defined Storage platform that dramatically simplifies the management of both existing and new storage infrastructure, and provides new data services to underpin next-generation applications and Big Data analytics.
The 3rd Platform of IT is based on the mega trends of cloud, mobile, social and Big Data and is creating a new world of opportunity — and competitive threat — for businesses in every industry. New mobile applications are delivering unique and frictionless experiences for customers to both interact and transact. These applications serve hundreds to millions of users and generate 1000x the amount of information as their predecessors. These new applications will require new storage infrastructures but they must run alongside the back-office applications that run the business today.
ViPR 2.0 builds a bridge to the 3rd Platform by enabling customers to manage both existing and new storage infrastructures in a consistent, fully automated way. ViPR also plugs into higher-level management and orchestration tools from VMware, OpenStack and Microsoft so storage can be a part of broader data center workflows.
The value of EMC’s ViPR Software Defined Storage Platform is that it separates the Control Plane (which is the ability to centrally manage various storage array functions including discovery, provisioning and reporting through ViPR Controller) from the Data Plane (which are advanced data services that run on top of storage arrays through ViPR Data Services delivering, for example, object capabilities to file-based platforms or block capabilities to commodity platforms). By decoupling the Control Plane from the Data Plane, ViPR simplifies management of intelligent arrays while leveraging their underlying intelligence in a fully automated way that is based on policy.
NEW VIPR DATA SERVICES: SUPPORTS NEW STORAGE TYPES AND NEW APPLICATIONS
ViPR 2.0 has added multi-site support through powerful new geo-scale storage capabilities which provide data access, integrity and protection. This means ViPR Object Data Services can now span multiple locations and offer state-of-the-art, patent pending geo-replication and geo-distribution capabilities to deliver new levels of efficiency and performance. ViPR Object Data Services also add additional compliance capabilities to ensure federal, healthcare and other industry requirements are met, and provide support for the EMC Centera CAS (Content Addressable Storage) API. This allows EMC Centera customers to maintain the unique retention and compliance features offered by their applications on any ViPR-supported platform with no software changes required. The bottom line is that new ViPR Data Services provide access to data wherever users are, wherever the data is, whenever it’s needed.
In addition, ViPR 2.0 also adds ViPR Block Services, new data services based on EMC ScaleIO server-SAN software. ViPR Block Services deliver block storage capabilities to any ViPR managed commodity storage array.
Enhanced ViPR Controller: Bridge to the 3 rd Platform of IT
ViPR 2.0 also extends support for EMC arrays with improved integration and management of EMC VPLEX and EMC RecoverPoint. This also includes the addition of multi-site capabilities and augmented multi-tenancy to support geo-scale storage environments that scale to hundreds of tenants in multiple locations all through a single namespace.
According to a recent Principled Technologies report, ”EMC ViPR makes storage automation an excellent companion for virtualization administrators, and delivers on the promises of a software-defined data center. ViPR automation reduces the risk of human error, and the need for lengthy management reviews, and can make your organization more nimble.”
