EMC is a large-scale computing company focused on data storage and cloud computing. With their VNXe product, they have moved into the small and medium sized business market by offering an affordable storage solution with an intuitive user interface. A persistent repository was implemented to maintain the information for the Customer Replaceable Parts inside a VNXe to enhance sustainability and reduce the cost of serviceability. The repository handles part information generated by a monitoring application and stores the information across multiple storage devices, keeping the information in sync between devices. This allows the information to be retrieved despite the occurrence of a serious fault, reducing the need for a technician to be hired to service the problem.
