EMC Expands CLARiiON Family
EMC announced major improvements to its EMC CLARiiON family of networked storage systems and software, including new UltraPoint Technology that provides customers with better availability and reliability as their environments scale and become more sophisticated. EMC also expanded the functionality of its CLARiiON software to help customers more effectively manage and protect their information throughout its lifecycle. EMC also announced four new models of its CLARiiON Disk Library (a simple-to-deploy, easy-to-use disk-based backup and recovery solution).
The new CLARiiON CX300-s, CX500-s, and CX700-s Fibre Channel and iSCSI models are based on UltraPoint hardware and software technology that combines point-to-point connectivity to individual disk drives with advanced diagnostic capabilities. The Virtual LUN Technology enables CLARiiON customers to move data seamlessly within a CLARiiON system to improve performance and capacity utilization. DC power capabilities for the Network Equipment Building System (NEBS) Level 3 and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) EN 300 386 certified CLARiiON CX Series brings storage capabilities to customers in mobile and remote environments.
The list of new Clariion products includes DL310 (3.8-37.5 TB), DL710 (up to 174TB), DL720 (up to 174TB); DL740 (dual Clariion CX700; up to 348TB). Prices for these start from $110,000.
UltraPoint Technology will be generally available in September 2005. The CLARiiON software enhancements and new EMC CLARiiON Disk Libraries will be generally available in August 2005. All of the announced EMC CLARiiON product offerings will be available directly through EMC and through its worldwide Velocity Channel and distribution network.
In September, Dell plans to offer the CLARiiON UltraPoint Technology under the Dell|EMC brand, adding to its existing portfolio of Dell|EMC CLARiiON AX and CX systems.
