EMC, CA Form SAN Alliance

Two household names are joining forces, as EMC Corp. and Computer Associates International Inc. recently announced an alliance aimed at developing next-generation SAN management and security solutions.

Through the agreement, the two companies will integrate their respective storage software products. In order to enhance the value of their storage products, the two companies are also extending integration across CA’s e-business solutions, enabling the addition of features such as enterprise management and predictive analysis technologies. 

As part of the alliance, CA has joined the EMC E-Infostrucutre Developers Program (EIDP). Through a range of APIs, this program enables members to integrate their independent software solutions with EMC Symmetrix Enterprise Storage systems.

On of the first set of integrated solutions to stem from the relationship is CA-Vantage, which now supports EMC Symmetrix. A storage resource management solution, CA-Vantage provides continuous availability of information through monitoring and automation functions.

EMC will continue to support SANITI, a CA initiative aimed at delivering open SAN management platforms based on open standards. The two companies will also work together to develop open SAN standards and software APIs for storage and SAN management. – Jim Martin
