More commentary on EMC’s new ViPR, this time from Scott D. Lowe:
Based on the limited material that is publicly available so far, here are a few thoughts about ViPR:
- I like the control plane-data plane separation model that EMC is taking with ViPR.
- I like that EMC is including a variety of object storage APIs, including Atmos, AWS S3, and OpenStack Swift, and that there is API support for OpenStack Cinder and OpenStack Glance as well.
- Obviously, a key difference between SDN and SDS a la ViPR is openness.
- Hey, where’s the network virtualization support?
