EMC’s ViPR—Putting The Bite On Storage Complexity

Ambition is commoner than success in IT, particularly when it comes to visionary product strategizing.

In other words, this isn’t some half-baked plan with minimal functionality or numerous to-be-determined (TBD) features. Instead, ViPR should deliver significant value out of the box and even more over time as additional features come online. We are particularly impressed by the new platform’s ease of use and simplified data access features, the absence of which can create thorny problems for storage owners and administrators.
