EMC and VMware join forces around software-defined storage and VMware virtual SAN

26 Aug 2013 San Francisco - As customers continue their march toward ever-simplified IT infrastructure, lower costs and increased business agility, EMC Corporation and VMware at VMworld 2013 launched a major investment and commitment focused on rapid advancement of software-defined storage architectures and emerging models for the way applications consume storage in virtualized environments.

Initial offerings emerging from this software-defined storage collaboration will focus on the small- to medium-sized business (SMB) and small- to medium-sized enterprise (SME) markets. In these markets it is common for customers to use vSphere singularly across a broad set of workloads, making the simplicity and tight integration of VMware Virtual SAN with VMware vCenter Server compelling. The efforts will focus on joint research and development projects, the creation of joint EMC and VMware proven solutions, and joint test and validation labs.

Offerings emerging from the collaboration are targeted to span a multitude of customer use cases for implementing software-defined storage inVirtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), test/dev and disaster recovery environments. Each targeted use case will be optimized for deployment on VMware Virtual SAN infrastructure, supported by storage policy-based management and featuring significantly reduced TCO through the use of low-cost server-side storage.

To ensure tight integration and execution, EMC and VMware have initiated and are building out geographically distributed development labs focused on product definition, compatibility testing, and the optimization of EMC, VMware and third-party technologies.

EMC, as an information infrastructure provider for VMware solutions, provides customers running VMware software with the availability, protection, and security needed to virtualize and gain competitive advantage while making it easier for customers to adopt cloud computing and virtualization technologies to run VMware software in next-generation cloud infrastructures with increasing levels of automation.

Dave Vellante, CEO and Co-founder, Wikibon, stated: "EMC's collaboration with VMware around VMware Virtual SAN promises a compelling software-defined storage value proposition for smaller organisations with fewer resources. Critical high availability and migration services, with granular, policy-based control at the virtual machine level, will be possible without the complexity and expense of large storage networks. Importantly, validated, tested and proven solutions emerging from this software-led initiative will enable IT pros to focus resources on tasks other than troubleshooting storage."

Jeremy Burton, Executive Vice President, of Product Operations and Marketing, EMC Corporation, stated: "EMC and VMware together are defining a new class of highly integrated storage infrastructure to reduce cost and complexity in VMware environments for SMBs and SMEs. A best-of-breed offering based on the combination of VMware Virtual SAN with EMC's market leading storage hardware and software portfolio will help expand the market opportunity for both companies."

Raghu Raghuram, Executive Vice President, Cloud Infrastructure and Management, VMware, stated: "VMware and EMC are helping drive transformative change to software-defined storage in virtualized environments. Our new collaboration with EMC is designed to help customers adopt VMware Virtual SAN and build storage architectures that are radically simpler and more efficient while delivering increased agility and flexibility."
