EMC: ViPR Software-Defined Storage

A highlight of EMC World was the introduction EMC ViPR, the company's first open software-defined storage platform.

ViPR abstracts and virtualizes storage while maintaining the unique capabilities of the underlying storage arrays. The platform automates provisioning by creating pre-defined policy-driven virtual storage arrays and delivers self-service access to storage. It centralizes storage management and monitors utilization, performance and health all though a single interface across physical and virtual storage.

Because ViPR is software-defined, it can extend to support non-EMC arrays, initially including arrays from rival NetApp. It also uses industry standard APIs to access cloud storage based on Amazon S3, OpenStack Swift and EMC Atmos technologies.
