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.

Now that’s a pretty bold statement from a company that’s mainly known for its excellent products, isn’t it? EMC will always be a technology company, but we are definitely seeing a shift in the buying patterns of our customers. The challenges that companies face today are so daunting that a standalone product can never solve all of the issues. Products and related services need to be glued together in total solutions that fit in – and actually enable – a broad IT strategy.

What I found out when talking to customers since joining EMC last spring is that not one company or industry can escape the changes that are affecting our entire society. Even the most traditional and conservative industries have to take into account that the new expectations of their clients are high. Very high. Whether you are in banking, insurance, manufacturing or running a city or government, regardless of whether you serve consumers or other businesses, the people using your products or services expect you to be always online. They want to be able to consult their investment portfolio, place and track their orders at the tip of their fingers, adapt their subscriptions to fit their exact needs. And they demand the possibility of doing that wherever they are and from whatever device they have at hand at that moment. Platform- and location independent instant gratification, that is what makes your – and our – customers happy.
