EMC strengthens its products and solution portfolio
EMC has made available a broad range of products and solutions designed to seamlessly connect primary storage and data protection systems to private and public 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.
Surajit Sen, Country Manager – Speciality Business, EMC, said, “EMC’ s portfolio is able to strategically move data and workloads to the cloud. The ability to seamlessly connect primary storage and data protection systems to private and public clouds enables effective management of data through its lifecycle from flash to disk to cloud. Only EMC has the breadth and depth of portfolio to empower customers to take control of their data and achieve the greatest efficiencies ensuring efficient security and protection of the same.”
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.
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.
Tiering Data to/from the Cloud – EMC ’s VMAX and VNX storage platforms deliver simple, automated tiering to and from private and public clouds. EMC is further extending the integration reach of VMAX with enhancements to its FAST.X tiering solution, enabling customers to achieve lower total cost of ownership by automatically tiering to public clouds from both EMC and non-EMC storage.
Protecting Data to/from the Cloud – Cloud Boost 2.0 seamlessly extends customers’ existing EMC data protection solutions, including the Data Protection Suite and Data Domain, to elastic, resilient, scale-out cloud storage, enabling customers to leverage the economic benefits of the public cloud for long-term data retention.
Protecting Data in the Cloud – Spanning by EMC now features enhanced restore and security capabilities along with new regional deployment within the European Union. Spanning Backup for Sales force delivers enhanced SaaS data restoration capabilities making it easier for customers to quickly and easily restore lost or deleted data.
Data Protection-as-a-Service – EMC service providers and EMC customers who deploy data protection as a Service (DPaaS) in their own private clouds will benefit from new features being introduced into the latest version of the Data Domain operating system DD OS 5.7, including enhanced capacity management, secure multi-tenancy, and a dense shelf configuration that dramatically reduces total cost of ownership.
Simplified Data Protection Management – Finally, EMC is announcing the next generation of its Net Worker data protection software. Net Worker 9 introduces a new universal policy engine designed that automates and simplifies the data protection process regardless of where the data resides. Using the policy engine, EMC customers will be able to automate the process of moving protection data through tiers of storage, with protected data stored locally for immediate access and cold data systematically handed off to more cost-efficient cloud targets.
Extending Data Lakes to the Cloud – EMC Cloud Pools, a new feature for EMC Isilon that allows customers to extend their cold data to public and private clouds.
Cloud Pools enables Isilon to tier data seamlessly to public clouds such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Virtustream and private clouds with EMC ECS or a remote Isilon cluster. The tiering happens without the need for a cloud gateway, providing cost-effective, easy and flexible hybrid cloud capability.
