Verizon Labs taps EMC for Software-defined Storage

Verizon Labs is working with EMC to expand its software-defined storage strategy.

Specifically, Verizon Labs is running EMC’s software-defined storage on commodity hardware while taking advantage of containerized, scalable, geo-distributed object storage and maximum elastic performance. EMC is integrating its commercial storage software with the open source Apache Mesos technology, as well as with the Mesosphere Datacenter Operating System (DCOS), for easier and more effective data center management. The companies said this approach allows Verizon Labs to operate a virtualized data center by managing distributed applications on large clusters of geographically distributed computers.

“With cloud-based data storage like EMC’s, Verizon gains adaptability and intelligent data management, which are integral to our cloud strategy,” said Kumar Vishwanathan, vice president and chief technologist for product strategy and development, Verizon Labs. “Software-defined storage overcomes the restrictions of hard-wired architecture and delivers the benefits needed in today’s dynamic datacenter environment.”

"EMC and Verizon are working to push the boundaries of speed, capacity and capabilities of storage infrastructure to meet the demands of next-generation applications. With this state-of-the-art software-defined datacenter technology, built on EMC’s ScaleIO and Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) offerings, we expect Verizon Labs to increase datacenter efficiencies in addition to gaining massive scale,” said Sam Grocott, senior vice president of product management and marketing, emerging technologies for EMC. “EMC partnered closely with Verizon to deploy this simpler architecture to help support their cloud service strategy.”
