By CIOReview | Tuesday, November 24, 2015

FREMONT, CA: In order to connect storage systems to public and private clouds, EMC brings forth new systems called EMC VMAX and VNX systems reports Larry Dignan for ZDNet. These new releases from EMC reduce workloads and allow users to provision resources to meet service level objectives easily.

EMC VMAX3 is architectured as a data services platform to scale out capacity of storage devices in a cost effective manner. It can be optimized for virtual applications and cloud environments. The VMAX3 hardware design features the turbo charged Dynamic Virtual Matrix Architecture that enables extreme speed and sub millisecond response time. On the other hand, EMC VNX can consolidate multiple workloads and handle IT environments with its hybrid storage arrays. It boosts the process of de duplication, data at rest encryption, local and remote replication and data mobility.

The new storage platforms from EMC will tier data from public and private clouds automatically supporting VMware vCloud Air, Azure, AWS and Google Cloud Platform. EMC’s data protection tools like Data Protection Suite and Data Domain can be tied up to cloud storage services through EMC’s CloudBoost 2.0.

Along with new storage arrays, EMC releases an updated version of NetWorker data protection software- a software that centralizes and automates data backup and recovery across IT environments. The new version automates policies from where the data is located.
