EMC and VMware unveil early access programme for new EMC Storage Analytics Suite for VNX

28 Aug 2012 San Francisco - EMC Corporation and VMware Inc. have introduced an early access programme for select VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite enterprise customers to begin using the EMC Storage Analytics Suite before it becomes generally available later this year. The EMC Storage Analytics Suite for VNX, a joint solution first announced by EMC and VMware at EMC World in May 2012, combines comprehensive storage intelligence with the analytics and visualization of VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite.

This offer is extended to VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite customers running at the enterprise level or higher and currently using EMC VNX unified storage products. The joint solution is designed to provide storage visibility, health alerts, proactive trending, rich metrics and customized dashboards within the VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite.

This solution helps proactively identify bottlenecks, balance workloads and pinpoint the root cause of potential problems around health and performance.

EMC Storage Analytics Suite enables customers to:

  • Maintain service levels by quickly identifying and troubleshooting performance abnormalities and remediating errors
  • Simplify storage operations management with powerful visualization and topology views
  • Pro-actively optimize storage performance and efficiency across physical and virtual environments with deep storage analytics and dynamic thresholding
  • Improve collaboration between IT groups and foster more holistic management across the enterprise

Eric Herzog, Senior Vice President, Product Management and Product Marketing, EMC Unified Storage Division, stated: "As more customers virtualize their business-critical applications, analytics are a transformational, must-have tool for actionable, end-to-end visibility in virtual environments. The combination of EMC Storage Analytics Suite for VNX and the VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite provides never-before-seen capabilities for customers requiring powerful server, network and storage infrastructure performance, capacity and analytics capabilities for optimized efficiency and management. ”

Ramin Sayar, Vice President and General Manager, Products, Cloud and Virtualization Management, VMware, stated: "The EMC Storage Analytics Suite for VNX demonstrates our shared vision with EMC to provide solutions that enable our joint customers to maximize their storage performance in heterogeneous and hybrid Cloud environments. This integrated cross-domain solution provides robust storage analytics capabilities with the automated optimization and simplicity of VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite."

The early-access programme is available starting in September and will run through December 2012. The EMC Storage Analytics Suite will be generally available in late 2012.
