EMC, Veritas Expand Their Partnership
Deal gives EMC users earlier and certified access to Veritas management tools.Users of EMC Corp. hardware will soon get earlier and certified access to new Veritas Software Corp. management tools, based on an updated partnership. The deal also means EMC and Veritas can now support each others products, officials said Monday. For connecting EMCs high-end Symmetrix, midrange Clariion and network-attached Celerra hardware to Veritas File System, Volume Manager and Foundation Suite software, "we can get it interoperable sooner because we dont have to wait for the product to be released" in order to first reverse-engineer it, said Chris Gahagan, senior vice president of storage infrastructure software at Hopkinton, Mass.-based EMC.
The expanded partnership doesnt apply to EMCs Centera object-based storage, for which Veritas, of Mountain View, Calif., doesnt have any software ports, he said.
