CoprHDEMC plans to release an open source project based on EMC ViPR Controller named Project CoprHD into the open source community.
The project will make the code for ViPR Controller — the storage automation and control functionality — open for community-driven development. The code will be available on GitHub in June 2015 and it will be licensed under the Mozilla Public License 2.0 (MPL 2.0).
Project CoprHD APIs are engineered to provide developers a single, vendor-neutral control point for storage automation with deep integration into Cloud automation frameworks from VMware, Microsoft and OpenStack. Just as with the EMC ViPR Controller, with the commercial version of Project CoprHD, customers, partners, service providers and system integrators can develop new service catalog offerings with automated workflows to meet their customers specific needs. ViPR Controller is designed to provide simple storage management for EMC and third-party arrays, and we will continue selling ViPR Controller as a commercial offering. ViPR Controller and Project CoprHD share the same core features and functionality. However ViPR Controller customers benefit from access to EMC’s support and professional services.

RT @DweebiaK: It's about to start! @PureStorage is shaking up the industry yet again. Pure + Cisco = FlashStacked! @chaddkenney @44cuse - 1 month ago

In the midst of the year end of 2014, we have launched a brand new replication technology which is based on our proven RecoverPoint engine and fully integrates with VMware.

I’ve had the first chance to play with it. As a specialist for traditional storage replication I was most impressed by how easy it is to startup and test the replicated Virtual Machine(VM).

First things first, to protect a Virtual Machine, simply select “protect” from its properties:

Next you can choose your desired RPO, the target cluster and the host and storage resource for the replicated VM: (more…)

The EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud (EHC) Solution provides two important things – IT Agility and Control.

The EMC EHC is an integrated, automated, secure and scalable platform for your business applications.

The solution provides you a modern, agile IaaS solution which is capable to dynamically allocate internal and/or external Cloud resources based on business demands.

You will be able to deploy and manage internal – Private Cloud – and external – Public Cloud – resources through a central platform providing not only a high agility but even more important secures the control of the consumed resources at any point in time. This transforms the traditional Enterprise IT into a modern IT Cloud Service broker.

People within the company and/or the IT department can dynamically consume services through a central Self-Service Portal. The solution provides you resource and cost transparency at any point in time.

The EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud based on VMware’s SDDC Architecture running on our Converged Infrastructure is pre-engineered and End-to-End tested providing a single point of contact for any platform related support questions.

And more important it can dramatically decrease the implementation time to less than three months! Which finally improves the Time-to-Market for Enterprise Customers as well as for Service Providers.

ScaleIO is a potential game-changer, disrupting the way how companies independent of their size can build new elastic Hyper Converged Private Cloud Infrastructures and how businesses purchase storage systems in the future.

ScaleIO is a solution which enables service providers to build not only a Hyper Converged Cloud which scales from 3 to 1000s of nodes providing high performance at low latency, it provides as well Cloud Framework and  hypervisor independency supporting VMware (ESXi), OpenStack (KVM), Linux and in the near future Microsoft.

ScaleIO’s innovative technology called ECS (elastic converged storage) is a software-only solution built for the elastic 3rd generation platforms. It’s Software-Defined-Storage, a virtual Scale-Out storage array built on x86 commodity HW using any combination of solid-state devices, PCIe flash cards and hard drives providing fully protected and shared block LUNs.

5 reasons why ScaleIO is a disruptive technology – based on a customer PoC in Switzerland: (more…)
