In continuing with the trend of innovation and improvement EMC revealed its next big announcement at EMC World 2015 – The EMC ViPR Controller, Project CoprHD. Engineered to provide developers with a single, vendor-neutral control point for storage automation, the Project CoprHD APIs offer the same level of flexibility, choice, security and transparency as the ViPR Controller. The aim is to develop a platform that provides simple storage management for both EMC and third-party arrays. Customers of the ViPR Controller customers benefit from access to EMC’s world-class support and professional services.
EMC aims to provide a more intelligent, flexible framework for dynamically managing multi-vendor storage resources. Open solutions and standards will simplify storage management to the benefit of end users.
