Cisco and EMC have signed an agreement to develop remote storage systems that manage data traffic from branch offices to central servers.
The deal will see Cisco reselling some of EMC's NS 500 and 700 Series networked attached storage (NAS) systems combined with Cisco's File Engine.
The combined systems are designed to allow central office sites to access branch office data, and vice versa, with minimal performance loss. They will also be sold to data centres as a central backup system.
The range of storage products will be sold directly and through Cisco's existing channel partners. The two companies have a history of working together; EMC has been reselling Cisco switches since 2003.
"Today's announcement is a natural extension of our ongoing partnering with Cisco," said Howard Elias, executive vice president office of technology at EMC.
