VMAX customers have choice and flexibility for migrations in both open systems Open Replicator for Symmetrix – Heterogeneous, open-systems array-based. Symmetrix control array device cold push using the symrcopy command. . This chapter introduces the EMC Symmetrix Open Replicator SYMCLI command. Open Replicator ensures a safe yet simple method for customers to manage their Whether you have an older EMC Symmetrix array or a legacy non-EMC.

FAST v1 should allow automated policy based data movement or prompt a user for manual intervention for data movement. RapidIO speed upgrade from 2.

Interconnect between two separate Symmetrix V-Max Systems 8 Engines each per system expanding into possibly 16 or 32 max engines. The more I think about this concept, the more it makes me feel that there are no added benefits of this architecture, rather it will add more complexities with data management and higher latency.
We may not see anything related to interconnects in this upgrade, but remember how the V-Max was initially marketed with having hundreds of engines and millions of IOPS, the only way to achieve that vision is through interconnects.
If Interconnets end up making in this release, limitation on the distance between two Symmetrix V-Max system bays would be around feet.
To the point above, another way of possibly connecting these systems could merely be federation through external policy based engines.
Ed Saipetch opej myself have speculated that concept on GestaltIT.
With the use of larger drive size, possibly expect a cache upgrade. Though for customers already invested into RapidIO technology with existing V-Max systemsit might be offline time to change the underlying fabric, which in most cases is unacceptable. Atmos currently is running as a beta release and we should expect a market release this Quarter.
Should we expect to see an integration between V-Max and Atmos. I am not sure of any integration today.
A very interesting feature to have in the EMC Symmetrix V-Max would be system partitioning, where you can run half the V-Max engines at a certain Microcode level with a certain set of features and other half can be treated as a completely separate system with its own identity almost like a Mainframe environment.
Though do not expect this symmtrix now, something to look forward for the next year. Symmetrix to Clariion to Celerra to Centera data movement through policy engine.

Ed Rdplicator and myself have speculated on GestaltIT on how that may work. Though after some thoughts, I do believe a policy engine can symmmetrix be a VM or a vAPP sitting outside the physical storage system in the Storage environment.
