EMC Launches SelfService Cloud Storage Platform

Storage giant EMC, which lately has been
positioning itself more often as a provider of cloud computing infrastructure,
on Dec. 14 launched what it claims is the industry’s first self-service
cloud-enablement platform for storage.

EMC’s Atmos Cloud Delivery Platform, aimed
at ISPs, storage providers and large enterprises that want to resell or
redistribute cloud services, incorporates system metering controls along with
standard cloud administration and multitenancy, chargeback and billing features
into one platform.

Because so much of the package is preconfigured, Atmos Cloud Delivery Platform
allows service providers to deliver a complete storage-as-a-service package to
their own customers within days as opposed to weeks or months. Atmos eliminates
the need for an in-house development job that can take months, EMC
said.

Atmos is a complete self-service software package that includes end-user
identity provisioning and resource reporting on bandwidth and storage
consumption. This includes a metering module that measures bandwidth and
storage at the end-user level, a necessary feature for ISPs when managing multitenant
and multiuser environments.
