EMC's Software-Defined ViPR Controller Goes Open Source

If your IT department is an EMC shop and also a major proponent of open-source technology, then you'll likely receive the news that EMC's software-defined storage controller ViPR will be open-sourced with glee. The company announced it will create a separate version of ViPR called Project CoprHD, according to a press release from EMC. The announcement was made at EMC World, the vendor's annual customer conference, in Las Vegas. This move marks the first time that EMC has open-sourced one of its commercial software products.
