EMC also enhanced the performance of its VPLEX virtual storage architecture, which allows data mobility between on-premise, public cloud and private cloud storage.
VPLEX 5.1 now includes integration with EMC's RecoverPoint continuous data protection software and with the company's Unisphere entry-level and midrange storage management software, Gallagher said.
VPLEX is also newly certified for Oracle application environments and with VCE Vblock converged infrastructure environments, and it has a 40-percent performance improvement and double the number of virtual servers that can be managed compared to the previous version, he said.
On the backup and recovery side, EMC unveiled a new Data Domain dedupe appliance, new dedupe software, and a new version of its Avamar virtualized environment backup software.
New to EMC is the DD990, which B.J. Jenkins, president of EMC's Backup and Recovery Systems division, called the world's fastest dedupe storage system.
The DD990 allows 248 TBs of data to be backed up in eight hours, and it can expand to 1.3 TBs in useable capacity, Jenkins said. It also consolidates the backups of up to 270 remote sites, he said.
EMC's Data Domain Boost software, which increases the performance of its Data Domain deduplication technology in specific operating environments, was enhanced for new support for EMC Greenplum big data computing technology and Oracle software. Performance was also enhanced for EMC Avamar virtualized backup and EMC Networker data protection environments as well as for Symantec environments, Jenkins said.
EMC also introduced the Data Domain Data Invulnerability Architecture, a new application for proving to customers that the integrity of stored data is not changed over time.
Also new from EMC is Avamar 6.1, a new version of its virtualized environment backup and recovery software that now features three times the backup performance and 30 times the recovery performance over the previous version, Jenkins said. Avamar 6.1 also now includes new support for SAP, Sybase and SQL 2012 environments, he said.
EMC World saw the debut of EMC DataBridge, a new enterprise management tool that provides IT operations teams with a single pane of glass management for building customizable dashboards for delivering IT-as-a-Service.
Burton said EMC is providing a software development kit to allow customers to build their own applications for managing storage and server infrastructures, as well as software that allows those custom-built apps to be assembled on the screen as the user wants to view it.
"And EMC DataBridge runs the screen the user composed," he said. "This not only allows us to make management tools more malleable, it gives us a view into other management tools."
