EMC showed off ViPR (previously known as Project Bourne) at EMC World 2013. ViPR is EMC’s solution for Software Defined Storage (SDS), helping to round out the EMC² family’s (EMC, VMware, Pivotal, RSA) Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) vision. Dave provided our introductory coverage of ViPR here. Since being unveiled at EMC World, I’ve heard some confusion in social media circles over what exactly ViPR is – along the lines of ‘ask 10 people what ViPR is and get 10 different answers’. To try to clear up some confusion, here is a brief overview of ViPR.
Yesterday I sat through what I think was the best session I have attended at EMC World so far. The session was focused on ViPR. You may have heard previous mention of this technology by its code name “Project Bourne”. I had heard a lot of buzz about it so I was certainly curious to find out what it was all about. Here is my short summary, but believe me there is a lot more to it so I suggeest checking out EMC’s website for more information.
