EMC Releases Open Source ViPR Controller for Software-defined Storage

EMC released "Project CoprHD" ("copperhead"), an open source version of its EMC ViPR Controller for software-defined storage. Project CoprHD makes the code for ViPR Controller – all the storage automation and control functionality – open for community-driven development.

ViPR Controller is storage automation software that centralizes and transforms EMC and third-party storage into a simple, extensible and open platform and EMC will continue to sell the commercial version of Project CoprHD, the EMC ViPR Controller, as a fully supported offering. ViPR Controller is offered as a key enabler for Third Platform applications that require fully integrated, next-generation scale-out storage architectures.

"For anyone left confused, today's announcements prove this is not your father's EMC. By offering access to Project CoprHD, the open source version of EMC ViPR Controller and free downloads of EMC ScaleIO – two key enabling pieces of our Software-Defined Storage portfolio – EMC has turned a corner by delving more deeply into open, collaborative software development with our customers, partners, developers and competitors. This represents a massive shift in our strategy that we believe will help accelerate our customers' efforts to develop new application-centric business models," stated Jeremy Burton, President Products and Marketing, EMC Corporation.
