It is designed to manage and automate pools of computer resources and can work with widely available virtualization technologies, as well as bare metal and high-performance computing HPC configurations.
ViPR is a software-defined storage platform that abstracts, pools, and automates a data center's underlying physical storage infrastructure. It provides a single control plane for heterogeneous storage systems to data center administrators.
On top of this control plane, administrators can deploy ViPR Services Object, HDFS, and Block Services on array- and commodity-based storage that enable users to use ViPR file-managed storage as an object store, perform analytics on ViPR-managed storage, and dynamically provision block commodity storage.
ViPR not only virtualizes storage, but it also decouples the control path from the data path.
The ViPR Controller manages the control path. ViPR's ability to abstract the control path allows storage management to operate at the virtual layer. This enables you to combine several physical storage pools into a ViPR virtual pool, or add several physical storage arrays into a virtual array.
The ViPR Controller does not sit in the data path for file and block stores.
This ensures applications can access storage and all its underlying value and data services embedded in the storage arrays without performance degradation. After the ViPR Controller is deployed by a data center administrator, ViPR Services can be deployed and layered over both traditional and new storage at cloud scale.
The data path is managed by three ViPR Services: The ViPR Services enable administrators and developers to shift away from array-specific services to better manage mixed workloads and Big Data applications in heterogeneous environments.
ViPR enables software-defined data centers by providing the following features: Storage automation capabilities for multi-vendor block and file storage environments control plane, or ViPR Controller Object data management and analytic capabilities through the ViPR Object and HDFS Services that create a unified pool bucket of data across file shares and commodity servers data path Scalable, dynamic, commodity-based block storage through the ViPR Block Service data path.
Management of multiple data centers in different locations with single sign-on data access from any data center Data replication between geographically-dispersed data centers to protect against data center failures with active-active functionality Integration with VMware and Microsoft compute stacks to enable higher levels of compute and network orchestration Comprehensive and customizable platform reporting capabilities that include capacity metering, chargeback, and performance monitoring through the included ViPR SolutionPack What are the ViPR interfaces?
A web-based User Interface UI that provides the ability to configure and monitor ViPR, as well as perform self-service storage provisioning tasks through an intuitive Service Catalog. A Command Line Interface CLI that provides an interface for developers and data center administrators to manage storage resources.
Deployment of the Controller vApp enables you to set up one storage control point for one or more physical data centers. One ViPR Controller controls all the storage resources within the virtual data center.
The Controller takes over the storage control plane to simplify and automate the management of block and file storage.

It allows users to operate at the level of ViPR virtual abstractions. ViPR aggregates and pools physical storage systems and pools into virtual arrays and virtual pools in a manner similar to VMware vCenter.
Policy and management functions are applied in the aggregate, simplifying the process.
