HOPKINTON, MA - November 17, 2015 -
EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced the immediate availability of a broad range of products and solutions designed to seamlessly connect primary storage and data protection systems to private and public clouds. As a result, organizations will be better equipped to take advantage of both the agility and unlimited scalability of public cloud services and the control and security of a private cloud infrastructure.
As IT departments rush to keep pace with the demands of the rapidly changing business, they often rely on both the private cloud – because it is trusted, controlled and reliable – and the public cloud – because of its low cost and near limitless capacity. Cloud-enabled storage and data protection solutions, like those being announced by EMC today, empower customers to deploy a trusted storage environment where data can be automatically tiered to both public and private clouds.
EMC is extending its out-of-the box enterprise cloud solutions delivering choice, flexibility and peace-of-mind with easy-to-deploy, easy-to-manage cloud tiering to and from a number of storage platforms.
EMC is also launching a number of new data protection features that provide customers with the tools they need to ensure their data is protected wherever it resides, regardless of what might happen.
New Products and Solutions Delivering Cloud Integration Across the Data Center:
EMC is integrating new and expanded cloud capabilities across its entire storage and data protection portfolio including solutions to store and protect data to, from and within the cloud.
Today's cloud enablement announcements come as part of a wider group of feature launches from EMC. To read more about them, please visit The Core blog.

“EMC NetWorker with CloudBoost has changed the way that we implement long-term retention of backups. Previously, the most cost-effective tier of storage we used was tape, but that came with its own challenges in the form of handing costs, security and longevity. CloudBoost allows us to unlock elastic, scale-out cloud storage, from a variety of vendors, as a seamless extension of our protection storage network. This saves us time and money – as well as delivering a solution that meets our needs both now and in the future.”
Arrian Mehis, General Manager, VMware Cloud practice at Rackspace
“Tiering is critical to our business both in our own data centers and in the data centers of our customers. Meeting our SLAs is central to delighting our customers. We help our customers determine what the right workloads are on the right types of storage. EMC provides us with powerful storage solutions – including VMAX3 and VNX2 - that automatically manage data platforms across our storage network, empowering us to rationalize costs without compromising performance. These same platforms, deployed in the facilities of our customers, provide them with the tools they need to take strategic advantage of cloud services like ours as part of their hybrid cloud strategy.”
Mark Peters, Practice Director & Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group
“Businesses need strategically capable partners to help them to evolve and manage their storage strategies, in order to move forward both pragmatically and optimally in a world of spiraling data volumes and demands. With this announcement, EMC is providing customers with solutions that allow them to better protect their current and future investments in storage technologies whether in their own data centers and/or in the cloud.”
Guy Churchward, President, Core Technologies, EMC
“Many businesses have seen huge benefits from strategically moving data and workloads to the cloud. However, this often means sacrificing some control over the data. Can you move your data across public clouds? Can you intelligently manage your data through its lifecycle from flash to disk to cloud – and then move it back if you need it? And how do you protect it? Only EMC has the breadth and depth of portfolio to empower customers to take control of their data and achieve the greatest efficiencies.”
