For the fourth year in a row, Spectra Logic had a booth at the annual EMC World conference. EMC World brings together thousands of the corporation’s employees, customers and partners, from all over the world. Walking the show floor one hears a different language being spoken nearly every ten feet.
EMC announced some interesting updates to their products at the conference. One of the most notable was the potential open sourcing of their software defined storage product, ViPR. Like Spectra, EMC sees use cases for multiple tiers of storage including Flash, HDD, and Object (both HDD and Cloud). Open sourcing ViPR should allow others to add additional types of storage including tape.
