EMC Releases DataBridge Enterprise Management Software
EMC focuses on enhanced data management with its DataBridge platform, which allows businesses to create widgets for combining data analytics.At EMCs World 2012 conference, the company unveiled the DataBridge enterprise management software platform, which converges IT operations data from disparate silos of information, providing performance metrics to businesses with the aim of offering enhanced visibility and control over their physical and virtual IT infrastructure. Enterprise customers use widgets to combine storage and network management information, reducing the time it takes to collect and analyze data. DataBridge will support the companys ProSphere, Data Protection Advisor, Unified Infrastructure Manager, IT Operations Intelligence Storage Configuration Advisor and AppSync platforms as well as non-EMC data sources. The widgets can be built using representational state transfer (REST) application programming interfaces (APIs), Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and Java programmable interfaces, X M L, Microsoft SQL, SharePoint lists and Excel files, according to an EMC release.
"Businesses today are bombarded with so much information from many different sources. An average IT operations professional manages data across hundreds of networks, storage arrays, firewalls and applications, each with its own management tool and data source, Jay Mastaj, senior vice president and general manager of EMC's infrastructure management group, said in a prepared statement. Manual processes are no longer viable in today's world of instant business decisions. Our vision is to continue developing these types of solutions to help our customers move their crucial data and business operations to the cloud environments."
