In an attempt to simplify the complex and expensive process of managing escalating volumes of information, EMC has unveiled an array of software for information storage management.

Through the introduction of products such as WideSky and EMC ControlCentre/Open Edition, the company aims to change the Middle East’s storage landscape in terms of openness, simplicity, integration, data replication and recovery.

Based on the company’s AutoIS strategy, the raft of products allows companies to use just one console to view their information resources, automate their storage processes, better serve their business needs, and protect their critical data against corruption, file loss, and error.

The company’s WideSky offering addresses storage management middleware as it allows users to manage products from multiple vendors in order to counter high costs and lower service levels while EMC ControlCentre/Open Edition focuses on the centralised management of multi-vendor storage environments.

Additional products, such as EMC ControlCentre Replication Manager, facilitate easier managed disk replications and EMC ControlCentre StorageScope allows users to see their entire storage infrastructure from a business perspective, so they can allocate storage resources with established business processes.

"The incredible growth of mission-critical data plus the increasing complexity of our customers' IT environments in the Middle East has actually made it more difficult for them to grow as businesses," says Thierry Louesse, regional general manager, EMC.

"The objective of EMC’s AutoIS strategy is to remove this barrier over time by helping customers in the region reduce storage complexity, lower management costs, and automate many labour-intensive and inefficient processes. Today marks the beginning of the most significant wave of new product introductions in EMC's history, which will bring significant benefits to our customers in the Middle East,” he adds.
