EMC Issues Statement on Aperi: "IBM Did Not Notify or Give Us the Opportunity"

"We were not notified or given the opportunity to engage in this proposed initiative prior to IBM already briefing the media"

EMC issued a statement after today's joint announcement by Brocade, Cisco, Computer Associates, Engenio, Fujitsu, IBM, McDATA, and Network Appliance on Aperi Open Source Storage software. The following is EMC's statement on this topic:

"EMC has the highest regards for creating and maintaining open industry standards and working with consortiums within the storage management environment. We were frankly perplexed that we were not notified or given the opportunity to engage in this proposed initiative prior to IBM already briefing the media and reflecting a consortium without EMC's inclusion.

We were equally perplexed that the Storage Networking Industry Association -- the existing industry consortium that has been working on storage management standards for a number of years -- was also not engaged in the process.

EMC remains committed to looking at all standards proposals, but we cannot take a stance on this proposed initiative at this time given that we were not provided any kind of runway to look at the validity of the initiative.

EMC has absolute religion in the area of open standard, but question the motivation of this effort when it's done secretively and does not include many of the top players in the industry or adequately involve SNIA for that matter..."
