EMC Announces Two New OpenStack Solutions

Today EMC Corporation announced that it has released two new OpenStack solutions. EMC first announced work on these solutions last November with its announcement of OpenStack Reference Architecture Program. EMC built these solutions in close collaboration with Canonical and Mirantis.

EMC has tremendously increased its contributions to the OpenStack community in the past year. This time at the OpenStack Summit marks EMC going from a bystander to a premier sponsor. These new solutions provide customers with several choices: whether they choose to build an OpenStack cloud based on an all-EMC solution, or, one based on integration with Canonical or Mirantis with Red Hat and VMware Integrated OpenStack.

EMC’s rapid acceleration into the OpenStack community and open source communities in general is in part due to its OpenStack Cloud reference architectures, its new software defined storage controller CoprHD, EMC {Code}, its newly launched EMC CloudFoundry Dojo, and EMC’s recent OPNFV Sponsorship. EMC also recently releases two new driers for the Kilo release, Cinder and Manila.


The new solutions are available today through partner distribution.
