Run Your Own Cloud Storage for Less, EMC Says

(PC World) – EMC is taking on Amazon’s cloud storage service with a private cloud platform it says will cost less to use.

The Elastic Cloud Storage Appliance, launching on Monday at EMC World and delivered by the end of June, is a hyperscale storage system for enterprises to deploy in their own facilities. EMC previewed it last year under the code name Project Nile.

The ECS Appliance is part of a wider move into cloud and so-called software-defined storage by EMC, which is looking beyond traditional storage even as the company and most of its customers continue to rely on dedicated hardware platforms. Also on Monday, EMC is introducing ViPR 2.0, an update to its storage virtualization and management software, while rolling out a data-protection appliance for midsize customers under the Data Domain line.

EMC says the ECS Appliance is as easy to use as public cloud storage and can grow enough to hold exabytes of data just like the big clouds can. Each ECS rack can hold 2.9 petabytes, and an exabyte is 1,000 petabytes.
