    News Summary:

    • New offerings unite best-of-breed EMC® technologies to provide near-instant implementations of enterprise applications.
    • New VMware®-based VCUBE architecture encapsulates applications to simplify provisioning and management in hybrid cloud environments.
    • New offerings to be made available in EMC Service Provider Program to enable telcos, hosting providers, ISV's and SaaS providers to deliver in enterprise environments.

    EMCWORLD 2011—LAS VEGAS - May 10, 2011 - EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced EMC Captiva®, EMC Document Sciences®, CenterStage® and Documentum® OnDemand. With an initial focus on content management and collaborative applications, these new offerings reduce implementation times and lower IT costs by encapsulating all required cloud management, virtualization, security, storage and infrastructure.

    EMC's OnDemand offerings bring together best-of-breed technologies from EMC, VMware and RSA® and will be made available for either on-premise, private cloud deployment or off-premise, public cloud deployment through Service Providers. The initial products to leverage this technology include EMC Captiva for enterprise capture; EMC Document Sciences for intelligent customer communications management, CenterStage for content management and collaboration, and the core Documentum content repository.

    The Power of the VCUBE Architecture

    These new EMC OnDemand offerings are built on two trailblazing components: the VCUBE and the VCUBE Manager. The VCUBE is the cloud deployment container and the VCUBE Manager is the centralized management and administration environment. The VCUBE can encapsulate one or more EMC or EMC partner solutions, and leverages industry-leading technologies from VMware, including VMware View™ for desktop virtualization, VMware vCloud® Director to pool virtual infrastructure resources (vApps), and VMware vShield™ for virtualization-aware security, and VMware vSphere® as the underlying cloud infrastructure platform. It can be "floated" from off-premise hosted sites to customer data centers using infrastructures such as VCE's Vblock Infrastructure Platforms without any changes.

    The VCUBE Manager will provide a "single pane of glass" to handle administration issues such as patch updates, LDAP integration, secure integration services, and overall customer experience. It will include a suite of RSA solutions for governance and protection to create a highly secure and compliance-ready platform. EMC OnDemand offerings come completely packaged with operating systems and application servers, and is preconfigured with appropriate test, development and production vApps. These vApps enable intelligent and coordinated migration from test to production.

    In alignment with EMC's cloud services strategy, all EMC OnDemand offerings will be available as off-premise services through EMC's Service Provider partners, giving customers the ability to connect to geographically appealing points of presence to ensure the highest level of performance and quality of service.
