HOPKINTON, Mass., February 25, 2009 - 

EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced two new EMC Proven™ Solutions that leverage EMC’s deep expertise with VMware to help customers of all sizes virtualize their environments and achieve critical IT efficiencies.  Both solutions combine EMC’s industry-leading platforms and backup and recovery software and use fully tested and validated reference architectures and best practices to accelerate time to deployment, deliver predictable results, and achieve improved performance, backup and recovery, high availability and manageability.  

EMC Integrated Infrastructure for VMware is ideally suited for midsize companies and remote offices, enabling them to quickly take advantage of a virtualized infrastructure while minimizing operational and management costs.  Unlike other vendors’ solutions that require long planning cycles, this solution typically reduces configuration time by 60 percent and deployment time by 50 percent, providing customers a faster return on their investment.  By standardizing on this infrastructure, customers are able to realize the benefit of reduced maintenance and operational costs while consistently delivering to service level agreements, simplifying support of the remote office.

Built on the EMC Celerra® family of unified storage systems, the solution gives customers the greatest flexibility and investment protection with its connectivity choice.  With EMC Avamar® deduplication software customers can have fast, efficient and reliable data protection by reducing the size of backup data at the source.  Less data allows companies to utilize existing WAN bandwidth, minimize the impact on physical and virtual infrastructure, and dramatically lower back-end storage operational costs.

EMC Backup and Recovery for VMware enables customers to backup their VMware ESX servers with minimal impact to network resources and business processes enabling application and information availability.  With this solution daily network impact is typically reduced by as much as 95 percent and the impact on clients is typically reduced to nearly 90 percent.  This ensures application and information availability during backups so revenue-generating activities can continue.  The centralized management of backups also enables customers to easily deliver the same level of backup service across their infrastructure, helping them more easily meet service-level agreements.

The solution combines EMC CLARiiON® CX4 series of midrange storage systems, Replication Manager and EMC SnapView® software to offload the backup resources from the production VMware ESX server environment, effectively creating zero backup times. Avamar deduplication software reduces the size of the backup within and across virtual machines, dramatically reducing the required backup window, network bandwidth and backup storage infrastructure.

"In today's economic climate, organizations are demanding that technology vendors help them quickly realize investment returns," said David Vellante, Co-founder and CEO of Wikibon. "Commitments such as EMC's to test and develop reference architectures and best practices that are free to customers are unique. They both lower risk and accelerate time to value."  

“A top priority for customers is efficiency.  They are deploying virtualization to enjoy the efficiency benefits it delivers and the new EMC Proven Solutions for VMware environments provide even greater cost savings,” said EMC’s Todd Pavone, Vice President, Global Solutions.  “EMC is focused on helping customers fully leverage their EMC technology with VMware and is committed to comprehensive integration testing to deliver solutions that are quickly deployed and deliver additional efficiency and value to virtualized environments.”
