EMC VPLEX: Virtual Storage Beyond Real Walls

EMC's new VPLEX provides data accessibility across distance (some now, more to come) that enables enormous flexibility and, potentially, entirely new IT operational models. In the same way that VMware can be seen as a "software mainframe" in terms of applications and the cloud, so EMC is adding the "virtual storage mainframe" that embraces distance, rather than having to overcome it. This new approach holds promise to turn data centers into application and service hubs for flexible, geo-dispersed IT.
