Specifically, Brocade Network Advisor SAN management software has been integrated with the EMC ViPR platform to create a modern storage architecture that enables policy-based automation for managing and provisioning both EMC and non-EMC storage infrastructure using the industry-standard Storage Management Initiative (SMI) interface.
This integration will help reduce data center costs and complexity for both current and future application deployments by taking advantage of Brocade Gen 5 Fibre Channel SAN solutions enhanced with Brocade Fabric Vision technology. Brocade Network Advisor is sold by EMC as Connectrix Manager Converged Network Edition (CMCNE).
As a result of the joint efforts,
EMC ViPR is the world's first software-defined storage platform that is designed to provide the ability to manage both storage infrastructure (called the Control Plane) and the data stored within that infrastructure (called the Data Plane). It masks the complexity behind configuring and managing storage infrastructure, providing single point-and-click management for complex, heterogeneous storage functions.
'Fibre Channel continues to be the dominant storage type deployed for virtualized environments and the Brocade integration with the EMC ViPR platform enhances those deployments by enabling new use cases built on top of the most reliable and highest-performing storage network,' said
'We have worked with Brocade to ensure seamless integration of the networking stack with the ViPR platform,' said

The EMC ViPR platform is now available from EMC and its global network of channel partners. For pricing information, please contact EMC atemc.com.
