The new features in Version 5.2, particularly the Linux support, hit a sweet spot for ControlCenter 4.0 customer Omgeo LLC.

"Our current environment consists of more than one data storage system and would therefore find value from an operations perspective in being able to extend ControlCenter to manage all of the storage products—including those that are not EMC," said Omgeo Managing Director of Technology David Cutright in Boston.

"We are in the process of defining an upgrade project to Version 5.x of ControlCenter for a variety of reasons, including the fact that we will be able to unify and leverage one interface for commands and tasks down from the current six interfaces," Cutright said. "Doing so will create a consistent work environment for our users."

On the managed services side, EMC last week joined Connected Corp., of Framingham, Mass., in unveiling the new EMC Proven Solution for PC Backup. The joint offering will enable telecommunications and cable television companies to offer subscribers automated PC data protection and backup as a managed service, according to EMC officials.

The package consists of EMCs Clariion XC and Centera disk arrays integrated with Connecteds DataProtector/PC data capture and restoration software.
