It would have been nice to see ViPer useing a NetApp Filer or HDS block. All these demo's use EMC products. It meant to vertulize ALL stroage platforms?

Hi Chad,

Great post on ViPR, any word as to when VPLEX will be supported with ViPR? Ideally, I would love to see the ability for ViPR to understand VPLEX in it's entirety meaning that you can configure the VNX/VMAX/Third Party arrays just as the demo showed, but then configure in a VPLEX 'array' and tell ViPR to provision to VPLEX, perform the discovery/encapsulation on VPLEX and then provision from VPLEX out to the host server(s). Once this functionality is available I believe that we will be in a much better position to pitch the 'software defined storage' idea to customers.

I personally love VPLEX and what it can do but have always thought it was missing some key functionality that I think ViPR will bring to the table. I have lots of other thoughts/questions but will hit you up on EMC e-mail after I have had a chance to play with the labs and try to figure them out myself :)

Cheers,


Justin

Very Nice article with demos and use cases. Does VPLEX manage IBM DS8000 arrays too? Thanks a lot.

@Venkatesh - yes, you can have VPLEX be in front of IBM DS8000s
