Storage vendor EMC has unveiled its Clariion UltraScale architecture and CX3 series networked storage systems delivering Fibre Channel speeds of up to 4Gbps.
The Clariion CX3 UltraScale series is designed to support the consolidation of multiple tiers of information onto a single array.
The CX3 offers end-to-end 4Gbps Fibre Channel technology, and features up to double the performance and capacity of its predecessor.
EMC's Clariion UltraScale architecture supports high-speed 2Gbps and 4Gbps Fibre Channel disk drives, as well as high-capacity 2Gbps Low-Cost Fibre Channel disk drives.
David Donatelli, executive vice president for storage platforms operations at EMC, said: "The new Clariion UltraScale architecture was specifically designed to eliminate the bottlenecks customers face with other midrange systems."
The Clariion CX3 UltraScale series can be configured for direct-attached and storage area network deployments.
ISCSI connectivity, along with Network Equipment Building System certification for use in public switched networks, will be available later this year.
The series includes dual-rate UltraPoint disk drive enclosures with an auto-sense capability that automatically configures an array for optimum operation.
The portfolio comprises the Clariion CX3-20, which is designed for mail/messaging, departmental applications and databases, web services, distributed applications, remote replication and workgroup productivity.
The Clariion CX3-40 is aimed at data centre requirements, while the Clariion CX3-80 offers maximum scalability, flexibility and performance.
