EMC has announced extended capabilities for VMware environments, with tested storage software for key applications including Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange, Oracle, and SAP.
The company said the applications have been tested and documented at workloads in VMware Infrastructure 3.5 environments to enable deployments that meet customer expectations for application-level performance, backup and recovery, remote replication, high availability, and manageability.
The company is also working toward integrating the forthcoming VMware Site Recovery Manager with its remote replication products including EMC SRDF, EMC MirrorView, EMC Celerra Replicator, and EMC RecoverPoint.
The joint engineering work that EMC and VMware are doing helps customers get the most value out of their deployments. We are focused on optimizing our joint solutions and supporting each other’s products, said Parag Patel, vice president alliances at VMware.
The company has similar partnerships with Sun Microsystems, HP, IBM, Cisco, Novell, and others to offer jointly engineered products and services.
