Why VMware runs best on EMC

on Thursday, 28 October 2010. Posted in VMware

It's some time ago EMC, the world leader in information storage and management acquired VMware. Actually it was the year 2003. If there are still people out there who think this was a bad idea, rethink again!

Joe Tucci, EMC President and CEO, said, "Customers want help simplifying the management of their IT infrastructures. This is more than a storage challenge. Until now, server and storage virtualization have existed as disparate entities. Today, EMC is accelerating the convergence of these two worlds." Was he wrong?

It's still a fact VMware operates independently. 'Almost' no interference. At least as I still hear. Did you hear me say NO interferances. Related organizational, true! If you look at the products EMC developed there is pretty mutch interference. And that's a good think.

I am an EMC and VMware user. So my stories are a little bit colored. But I have the privilege to work with nice things related to EMC and VMware every day. And it's just amazing how easy things are to integrate. Let me give you some examples why VMware runs best on EMC.

  • EMC Unified Storage vCenter plugin. This plugin, is a must have in combination with vSphere
  • VMware aware Unisphere
  • SRM, Site Recovery Manager. supports Celerra Replicator, Clariion Mirrorview, Symmetrix SRDF, Recoverpoint)
  • Data Protection Advisor vCenter Plug-in
  • EMC Control Center vCenter integration
  • VPLEX vMotion over distance
  • EMC Unified/EMC CLARiiON VAAI
  • PowerPath/VE
  • Avamar – integrates with vCenter
  • many, many more.

Like you can see, integration is good. EMC offer direct integration and management capability of their systems from VMware’s Management suite by making use of API’s. EMC and VMware integration makes things simpler and more efficient. Of course EMC supports everyone. But because they own VMware it's really obvious that they have an advantage.
