ViPR is Our Answer to Software-defined Storage: Amitabh Srivastava, EMC

Radhika Nallayam | April 29, 2014
Amitabh Srivastava, president for EMC's Advanced Software Division is the man behind the storage giant's much-talked about software-defined storage (SDS) initiatives. He talks in detail about EMC's ViPR and why SDS has been wrongly-defined so far.

Srivastava: Scale itself is a very big differentiator. How much does ONTP scale? On a closer look, we can see that it's very limited. The very reason why NetApp is facing this scale issue is, they designed this solution for a scenario that existed many years ago. EMC developed it in 2011 and hence we designed the product for platform 3. NetApp may address the scale part of it, but their design base is such that they cannot address the 'Platform 3' challenge. Their solutions are not designed to handle today's public clouds.
