Today at EMC World, EMC announced ViPR, a new open storage platform that enables the abstraction of the storage layer into a single pool of virtual storage within a software-defined data center. ViPR will easily integrate with VMware-based environments, and will enable organizations to centrally access and manage EMC and heterogeneous physical storage infrastructure.
By extending the benefits of the software-defined datacenter to storage, customers will be able to use their existing VMware infrastructure with ViPR to drive greater value, automation and simplicity out of their existing storage solutions.
At VMware, our mission is to extend the benefits of virtualization to all areas of the data center — beyond compute to security, networking, management and storage. With the help of our strategic partners, such as EMC, we can help customers realize greater efficiency, flexibility and agility in their IT infrastructure through a software-defined data center architecture.
