Guy Churchward: EMC Unveils Software-Based Storage Protection Suite for Data Centers

EMCEMC Corp. has released a new portfolio of data storage applications designed to help enterprises manage archiving, recovery and security functions.

The Data Protection Suite is built to support physical, virtual and cloud computing systems and helps customers shift toward a software-defined storage model, EMC said Thursday.

According to the company, the offerings work to integrate with cloud-based infrastructures such as VMware‘s vCloud Suite and Microsoft’s System Center Virtual Machine Manager.

EMC also launched its Blueprint for Backup Architecture service to provide customers with baseline information and strategies regarding data security.

“Data protection-as-a-service is a key tenant for establishing effective protection for software-defined data centers — a ‘bedrock’ that needs to be in place for organizations to confidently transition to third platform software infrastructures,” said Guy Churchward, president of EMC data protection and availability division.

The company introduced an operating system to power its Data Domain deduplication storage systems and support third-party applications.

EMC also added snapshot management features have been added to its Isilon, VNX and NetApp storage arrays.
