EMC 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.
