Redefining storage

EMC ViPREMC ViPR software-defined storage

Today, most storage infrastructures include a patchwork of storage platforms from different vendors at multiple sites around the world, all delivering a wide variety of storage services.

Each of these storage platforms was chosen based on its ability to handle specific workloads – and each has its own unique set of APIs, management and monitoring tools.

This diversity makes the efficient management of these storage silos a challenge. As the amount of data grows, an increasingly large number of specialized IT administrators is required to execute repetitive, serial and manual tasks to deliver storage services. EMC® ViPR® provides a centralized way to automate provisioning and deliver storage resources, by policy, across multi-vendor storage arrays, allowing fewer IT administrators to do more work in less time – across the enterprise. It’s a software-only solution that transforms storage into a simple, extensible and open platform. Continue reading

Harness the power of flash with a purpose-built, enterprise-grade all-flash array

EMC XtremIO

The benefits of flash technology for accelerating applications are well known.

But what if that were just the beginning?

What could you do if you designed an enterprise storage system that was built from the ground up to leverage flash in every aspect of its design?

With XtremIO, EMC has done just that.

With none of the design constraints of hard drives, XtremIO has created a storage system so powerful yet simple that it defies every notion you’ve ever had about complex storage environments.
