EMC unveil novel XtremIO application integration and management features
The latest updates include improvements to XtreamIO iCDM functionality and streamlined storage management for virtual environments.
EMC Corporation have announced the latest release of its XtremIO all-flash storage platform for VMware and Microsoft virtualised environments.
David Goulden, CEO, EMC Information Infrastructure, EMC Corporation shared: "As the clear market share leader for all-flash storage, XtremIO also carries the mantle as EMC's fastest-growing product ever.
"Apart from its world-class performance and ease of use, which we're enhancing today, XtremIO is recognized for the continuous innovation being poured into the platform to make it even more valuable to our customers. XtremIO is core to EMC's modern data center strategy and we look forward to sharing exciting news on even more XtremIO innovation in the near future."
Updates to the platform introduces a number of workflow automation integrations, which greatly benefit application and infrastructure teams. End-user experiences enjoy both improvements and streamlined processes to resource provisioning and management workflows.
Additionally, the platform boasts improved automation and orchestration within virtualised environments.
The introduction of Integrated Copy Data Management (iCDM) functionality aids in reducing the need to invest in separate dedicated hardware and software, which would be the standard for handling copy data sprawl.
Raghu Raghuram, executive vice president and General Manager, Software-Defined Data Center Division, VMware, said: "The XtremIO integrations with VMware vRealize Orchestrator empowers customers to perform critical tasks such as backup, replication and file-level restores for virtual machines natively in the VMware vCenter or the vRealize Orchestrator user interface.
He adds: "These integrations offer customers new features to help accelerate productivity, while protecting business-critical applications and data in a simple and efficient manner."
