Hopkinton, MA - August 25, 2016 -
EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC) today announced the release of new application integration and management features in the EMC® XtremIO® all-flash storage platform for VMware and Microsoft virtualized environments. The new XtremIO features offer a rich set of workflow automation integrations that enable application and infrastructure teams to take full advantage of simplified resource provisioning and management workflows, automation and orchestration in virtualized environments. Integrated Copy Data Management (iCDM) functionality also helps reduce the need to purchase separate dedicated hardware and software to manage copy data sprawl.
Among more than a dozen updates to the XtremIO XIOS™ operating system, highlighted new features include:
EMC also released a beta version of XtremIO's new web-based HTML5 graphical user interface. This web-based user interface is designed to help provide XMS users with a simple, lightweight option for XtremIO reporting, monitoring and management – and supports access via mobile devices.
The rich set of application integration and storage workflow automation features built into XtremIO are designed to help simplify storage management and provisioning processes within major applications that are critical to both IT and business users. EMC will continue developing XtremIO to support integration and workflow automation capabilities for additional applications to help reduce the complexity of managing and provisioning storage and application copies.
For the third consecutive year, XtremIO all-flash storage arrays have been chosen to power the VMworld 2016 Hands-on Labs, an extremely demanding, IO-intensive instructional environment built for testing and demonstration of a variety of virtual and cloud-based workloads with hundreds of users in more than 100 sessions over four days. XtremIO all-flash storage is part of the foundational infrastructure of the VMworld Hands-on Labs that powers the hybrid cloud, end-user computing and software-defined data center environments that are built on top of the VMware software stack. XtremIO delivers high IOPS and predictable sub-millisecond latencies while providing 100% storage uptime and maximum storage capacity efficiency (upwards of 12:1), to ensure a world-class user experience against the high performance and reliability demands of the Hands-on Labs environment.
New features within the latest release of the XtremIO operating system are available immediately as a free software update for customers with current support agreements. The XtremIO vRealize Orchestrator plugin will be available later this year.
