""Information Storage and Management: Storing, Managing and Protecting Digital Information"" Now Available From Wiley Publishing

HOPKINTON, Mass, May 7, 2009 - 

EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced that it has collaborated with John Wiley & Sons, the leader in technology publishing, to produce Information Storage and Management: Storing, Managing and Protecting Digital Information (Wiley Publishing, Inc.; May 2009). Information Storage and Management (ISM) is the definitive reference on the full spectrum of storage technologies, for everyone who must understand how to efficiently store, manage and protect digital information—from students, to IT professionals in the field, to senior technology decision makers.

To best address the modern datacenter, which is typically comprised of multiple technologies from numerous vendors, this comprehensive technology book takes an ‘open’ approach to information storage and management, focusing on concepts and principles, rather than product specifics. ISM is written by a team of storage industry experts from EMC, who leverage the company’s 30 years of experience with storage technologies, and is edited by G. Somasundaram, Director, EMC Education Services and Alok Shrivastava, Senior Director, EMC Education Services. The expansive growth of digital information, increasingly complex IT environments and the growing strategic importance of information in today’s business world require IT professionals to have increasing levels of technical understanding and is making it more challenging for organizations to find workers with the skill and knowledge necessary to compete. ISM addresses this growing storage technology knowledge gap.

"Information Storage and Management addresses a critical area of modern information technology and the dearth of educational materials for this area," said Brian H. Cameron, Ph. D., Professor of Practice, Enterprise Informatics and Integration (EII) Center, College of Information Sciences and Technology, The Pennsylvania State University. "Information storage and management are topics that should be part of a modern technology curriculum. EMC continues to be a leader in the advancement of information storage education."

The book's 40 contributing writers cover the evolution of storage technology, including traditional deployment, consolidated storage networking and storage virtualization, while also addressing the most prevalent storage technologies, including direct attached storage (DAS), networked attached storage (NAS), storage area networks (SAN), content addressed storage (CAS), and IP SAN. Various business continuity solutions using local and remote replications technologies are explained, along with backup, recovery and archival techniques. ISM also includes the current trends in information security and management of information storage, making ISM a necessary reference for today’s IT professional. The book's companion website provides updated information on information storage technology trends, as well as additional learning aids.

“As the industry’s leading provider of information infrastructure and storage solutions, EMC is uniquely qualified to bring the definitive reference on storage technologies to market,” said Tom Clancy, Vice President, EMC Education Services. "EMC is already working to build the industry’s future workforce by collaborating with more than 300 leading institutes of higher learning worldwide, through the EMC Academic Alliance and Learning Partners Programs. ISM builds on this experience and taps into EMC’s global network of experts and resources—from EMC Education Services, our CTO office, and Engineering—to produce this comprehensive end-to-end reference that will benefit everyone from students to practicing IT professionals to those involved in the decision making and application of information infrastructure technologies that address today’s demanding business challenges."

ISM follows EMC's popular Information Storage and Management curriculum, which helps technology professionals achieve the industry-leading EMC Proven™ Professional certification.
