By automating routine yet complicated tasks, ViPR saves time and administrative effort and reduces the risk of human error. Built for the cloud, ViPR creates the ability for users to self-service provision storage from a diverse storage-array portfolio, increasing operational efficiency while enhancing organizational responsiveness and flexibility.
The benefits of ViPR are clearly demonstrated in its tight integrations with VMware. Virtual workflow automation, rapid provisioning, and enhanced monitoring of the ViPR environment could greatly enhance a virtualization administrator’s ability to proactively manage their environment. Organizations that have come to appreciate the benefits of virtualized computing can now apply the same approach to storage and manage it through their VMware tools. EMC ViPR includes many plugins and extension packs allowing third-party monitoring and reporting tools to effectively provide detailed views of environmental conditions within a ViPR-supported system. Finally, EMC ViPR brings object storage capabilities to organizations by overlaying an object target on top of managed storage platforms.
An application that brought even one of these features to an organization would be a valuable addition to a software portfolio. With all of these features, and a growing catalog of supported storage platforms, it is easy to see how EMC ViPR can bring significant value to the datacenter.
