Updates include application-centric workflows to manage application resources without necessarily understanding the underlying storage systems, the Southbound SDK from the open-source CoprHD Project to add support for any storage system to ViPR Controller, and native disaster recovery features providing for two backup sites in case of disaster and to ensure high availability.
"With ViPR Controller, EMC has paved the way for unifying multivendor environments. These new features enhance some of the product’s hallmarks - simplicity, extensibility and enterprise-class - in order to reduce costs and human error while addressing scale and agility," said EMC emerging technology division senior vice president for advanced sofware Manuvir Das.
"As always with ViPR Controller, we’re innovating to address customer needs today and tomorrow, in any storage environment."
