EMC Unveils New ViPR Software-Defined Storage Platform

LAS VEGAS, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EMC WORLD -- Story Highlights:

  • The EMC ViPR Software-Defined Storage Platform uniquely provides the ability to both manage storage infrastructure (Control Plane) and the data residing within that infrastructure (Data Plane).
  • The EMC ViPR Controller leverages existing storage infrastructures for traditional workloads, but provisions new ViPR Object Data Services (with access via Amazon S3 or HDFS APIs) for next-generation workloads. ViPR Object Data Services integrate with OpenStack via Swift and can be run against enterprise or commodity storage.
  • EMC ViPR integrates tightly with VMware's Software Defined Data Center through industry standard APIs and interoperates with Microsoft and OpenStack.

Full Story:

At EMC World 2013, EMC (NYSE: EMC) today introduced EMC ® ViPR™, the world's first Software-Defined Storage platform. As service provider and enterprise data centers grow to tens and hundreds of petabytes, the cost and complexity associated with managing them becomes untenable.  By using EMC ViPR to manage storage infrastructure and the data residing within that infrastructure, organizations can both drive groundbreaking improvements in automation and lay down a modern storage architecture for future application deployments. Using EMC ViPR, service providers and IT departments can drive towards the operational model of web-scale data centers without hiring thousands of technical experts to build a custom environment.

EMC ViPR is unique in a number of ways by:

  • Managing both storage infrastructure (called the Control Plane) and the data stored within that infrastructure (called the Data Plane).
  • Decoupling the Control Plane from the Data Plane, allowing the use of both together — or enabling customers to use only the Control Plane to manage the underlying intelligence of the storage arrays through policy-based automation. This is a radical departure from prior attempts to virtualize storage.
  • Offering the ability to view objects as files and provides file access performance without the latency inherent to object storage.
  • Providing the capability to be implemented entirely in software and will run against EMC, non-EMC and commodity hardware.

EMC ViPR Controller – The Control Plane

The EMC ViPR Controller (the Control Plane, which manages the storage infrastructure) can deliver dramatic improvements in automation because it virtualizes the underlying storage infrastructure.  Common storage management functions, like provisioning or migration, are abstracted so that different storage arrays can be managed as a single pooled resource in exactly the same way. Now for management of these highly complex functions, ViPR delivers a single point-and-click approach. (This is analogous to using a universal remote control in your living room to operate your TV, DVD, streaming device and DVR). Customers no longer need to engage in the complex and all-consuming task of interacting with multiple management interfaces that permeate heterogeneous storage arrays.
