EMC, a provider of information infrastructure offerings, has unveiled the EMC Atmos Cloud Delivery Platform, which is a self-service cloud enablement platform for storage.
The new platform features self-service capabilities, including end-user identity provisioning and resource reporting on bandwidth and storage consumption.
The platform includes a metering module that measures bandwidth and storage at the end-user level, and also enables chargeback and billing integration capabilities for private and public cloud environments.
Service providers and enterprises can access these self-service and metering capabilities through an existing customer facing portal that connects to the Atmos Cloud Delivery Platform or through a standard portal that is offered as part of the platform.
The company said service providers and enterprises can now deliver a complete storage-as-a-service offering to customers in less time, as the new cloud enablement platform for storage combines the power of EMC Atmos.
The Atmos Cloud Delivery Platform alleviates the need for an in-house, custom development effort that can take months of time and resources, reducing enterprise and service provider costs, time-to-market and barriers to entry, the company claims.
The new platform complements EMC Atmos, which automatically manages the global availability of unstructured data through a policy managed, scale-out object storage infrastructure.
EMC Cloud Infrastructure Group senior vice President Mike Feinberg said the Atmos Cloud Delivery Platform is enabling service providers and enterprises to quickly enter into this new market space and deliver innovative cloud services today.
"This new platform eliminates the time, resources, and big investments that service providers and enterprises had to grapple with to join the cloud storage service arena," Feinberg said.
