EMC {code} — What’s it all about

When you hear “EMC” you most likely think storage, you most likely don’t think open source or devops.  That’s where EMC {code} comes in.

Started nearly two years ago and championed by executive sponsor Josh Bernstein, this group of developers, evangelists and community activists is focused on enabling developers and on making EMC more relevant in the open source and devops communities.

For a high-level overview take a listen to Josh as he lays out the group’s goals and objectives.

RackHD and REX-Ray

As Josh mentions in the video above, two of EMC {code}’s key projects are RackHD and REX-Ray.  RackHD provides hardware management and orchestration services while REX-Ray delivers a vendor agnostic storage orchestration engine.  In the next video, shot at DockerCon, Josh does a double click and takes us through REX-Ray and RackHD.

But wait, there’s more

REX-Ray and RackHD are just two of the dozens of projects you can find on the EMC {code} page, including the unikernel project UniK as well as Polly which handles volume scheduling for container schedulers.

It’s all about the community

A huge part of EMC {code}’s efforts revolve around community development and developer support.  This final video stars EMC {code} developer advocate and community manager, Jonas Rosland who talks about his roll and his perspective of EMC {code}.
