CHOICE, FLEXIBILITY, SECURITY AND TRANSPARENCY
Since its launch in 2013, customers, partners and industry analysts have hailed ViPR Controller as a leading, vendor-neutral control point for Software-Defined Storage automation. ViPR Controller is storage automation software that centralizes and transforms EMC and third-party storage into a simple, extensible and open platform and EMC will continue to sell the commercial version of Project CoprHD, the EMC ViPR Controller, as a fully supported offering. ViPR Controller is offered as a key enabler for Third Platform applications that require fully integrated, next-generation scale-out storage architectures.
To propel IT-driven business transformations EMC has announced free and frictionless access to Software-Defined Storage software. EMC has released Project CoprHD (“copperhead”) which is an open source version of EMC ViPR Controller. Project CoprHD is expected to be licensed under the Mozilla Public License 2.0 (MPL 2.0) and enables customers, partners, developers and other storage vendors to access, expand and contribute to Project CoprHD’s breadth and depth of features and functionality.
FREE SCALEIO VERSION OFFERS UNLIMITED CAPACITY AND TIME FOR NON-PRODUCTION USE
EMC is also providing unrestricted access with the free release of ScaleIO Software download for non-production use. Enterprise-grade enhancements to ScaleIO to support high-performance applications and Infrastructure-as-a-Service are also being reviewed.
The ScaleIO enhancements will be available later this year and are planned to deliver new features to meet the emerging needs of enterprise customers and service providers deploying Third Platform applications.
