EMC improves storage virtualisation platform

Storage systems supplier EMC has improved its storage area network (San) virtualisation with a new version of the EMC Invista platform.

Storage systems supplier EMC has improved its storage area network (San) virtualisation with a new version of the EMC Invista platform.

Version 2.0 includes interoperability with VMware infrastructure and improved levels of availability, scalability and manageability for storage virtualisation.

Invista combines EMC application software and hardware with intelligent San switch hardware from Brocade and Cisco.

EMC Invista has been tested, optimised and certified for use with VMware ESX Server 3.0.2, giving users the ability to better manage, share and protect the growing amounts of information in VMware infrastructure environments, said EMC.

Increased availability of the system is delivered through a new distributed control path cluster (CPC). This enables the nodes of the CPC to be separated and supported over campus distances, allowing Invista to continue operating in the event of localised failures.

Expanded scalability is achieved as a result of doubling the number of virtual volumes and storage elements, plus a five-times increase in the number of simultaneous mobility sessions possible.
