EMC Corporation, a provider of information infrastructure solutions, has introduced the newest version of EMC Invista for storage area network (SAN) virtualization. The additional capabilities in Invista are intended to make it easier for customers to simplify and automate the management of their information, minimize downtime, lower costs, and receive maximum utilization of their entire infrastructure--from storage to servers to files. Invista is an enterprise-class, network-based storage virtualization solution for non-disruptive operations. It combines EMC application software and hardware with intelligent SAN switch hardware from Brocade and Cisco. The new version of Invista includes a number of key additions--including higher availability for improved data protection, expanded scalability for stronger performance and enhanced management for better utilization -- that are intended to help customers keep their infrastructures up and running through both planned and unplanned events.
