EMCWORLD 2011—LAS VEGAS - May 10, 2011 - EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced EMC Captiva®, EMC Document Sciences®, CenterStage® and Documentum® OnDemand. With an initial focus on content management and collaborative applications, these new offerings reduce implementation times and lower IT costs by encapsulating all required cloud management, virtualization, security, storage and infrastructure.
EMC's OnDemand offerings bring together best-of-breed technologies from EMC, VMware and RSA® and will be made available for either on-premise, private cloud deployment or off-premise, public cloud deployment through Service Providers. The initial products to leverage this technology include EMC Captiva for enterprise capture; EMC Document Sciences for intelligent customer communications management, CenterStage for content management and collaboration, and the core Documentum content repository.
The Power of the VCUBE Architecture
These new EMC OnDemand offerings are built on two trailblazing components: the VCUBE and the VCUBE Manager. The VCUBE is the cloud deployment container and the VCUBE Manager is the centralized management and administration environment. The VCUBE can encapsulate one or more EMC or EMC partner solutions, and leverages industry-leading technologies from VMware, including VMware View™ for desktop virtualization, VMware vCloud® Director to pool virtual infrastructure resources (vApps), and VMware vShield™ for virtualization-aware security, and VMware vSphere® as the underlying cloud infrastructure platform. It can be "floated" from off-premise hosted sites to customer data centers using infrastructures such as VCE's Vblock Infrastructure Platforms without any changes.
The VCUBE Manager will provide a "single pane of glass" to handle administration issues such as patch updates, LDAP integration, secure integration services, and overall customer experience. It will include a suite of RSA solutions for governance and protection to create a highly secure and compliance-ready platform. EMC OnDemand offerings come completely packaged with operating systems and application servers, and is preconfigured with appropriate test, development and production vApps. These vApps enable intelligent and coordinated migration from test to production.
In alignment with EMC's cloud services strategy, all EMC OnDemand offerings will be available as off-premise services through EMC's Service Provider partners, giving customers the ability to connect to geographically appealing points of presence to ensure the highest level of performance and quality of service.
"We are delighted to be able to accelerate the journey to the cloud for enterprise customers running EMC content management and collaborative applications," said Pat Gelsinger, President of EMC's Information Infrastructure Business. "This new OnDemand deployment is enabled through EMC's market leading virtualization, security and storage technology and promises to dramatically reduce application implementation times and lower costs."
"VMware and EMC share a vision for enabling business agility through enterprise hybrid cloud computing," said Paul Maritz, Chief Executive Officer, VMware. "EMC OnDemand is an innovative approach that helps customers achieve this agility by delivering enterprise applications in the cloud. Powered by VMware's portfolio of cloud infrastructure and management solutions, EMC's OnDemand offerings reduce IT complexity so that customers can focus on business value."
"EMC's OnDemand offerings change the game by dramatically reducing the cost, complexity and time required to implement information management services. We are taking a major step forward in enabling customers to truly have it their way: either on or off premise, private or public cloud-enabled or combinations of both, managed by EMC experts. We're delighted to deliver this revolutionary approach to the market, with much more to come," said Rick Devenuti, President of the Information Intelligence Group at EMC.
"EMC's OnDemand offerings brings together an impressive array of EMC technologies to accelerate cloud computing for customers. RSA delivers the industry's best authentication, data protection and security compliance solutions to provide the trust and control in the cloud that global customers demand," said Eric Baize, senior director, Office of Strategy and Technology RSA, The Security Division of EMC.
