EMC Corporation unveiled the next generation of its EMC Celerra NS series

05 декабря 2006
Using EMCЎ¦s breakthrough full 4Gb/s (gigabit-per-second) EMC CLARiiON CX3 UltraScale architecture, the new EMC Celerra NS series systems further extend EMCЎ¦s price/performance leadership in network attached storage (NAS) while delivering advanced scalability and functionality, unmatched availability, and simplified management.

Ў§EMC is providing customers with more IP storage value for their money than anyone,ЎЁ said David Donatelli, EMC Executive Vice President, Storage Product Operations. Ў§Competing products have inherent limitations that compromise performance as capacity increases. They simply cannot scale, and customers end up wasting money buying new filers with low capacity utilization to meet performance requirements, which results in greater management complexity. The EMC Celerra NS series systems take advantage of the EMC UltraScale architecture to allow customers to scale both performance and capacity simultaneously, without compromise. With the EMC Celerra NS series, customers can scale a single system and make use of more of their available storage without affecting performance, while more effectively managing and allocating their IP storage resources. EMC's next-generation Celerra NS series of IP storage systems includes:
  • EMC Celerra NS40 and NS40G systems: Designed to deliver unmatched data availability and providing 16 to 32 terabytes of usable capacity via single- or dual-blade configurations, the Celerra NS40 systems are optimized for customers looking to consolidate multiple file servers and/or Exchange, SQL or Oracle applications running on DAS (direct attached storage). They provide up to 39% more performance than the earlier Celerra NS500 systems and combine NAS and iSCSI capabilities in either an integrated or gateway system.
  • EMC Celerra NS80 and NS80G systems: Optimized for environments requiring advanced clustering availability and providing 20 to 60 terabytes of usable capacity via 2-, 3- or 4-blade configurations, the Celerra NS80 systems are optimized for customers looking to consolidate numerous file servers and/or Exchange, SQL or Oracle applications. They provide 27% more performance than the earlier Celerra NS700 systems and combines NAS and iSCSI capabilities in either an integrated or gateway system.
  • New X-Blade 65 server technology for the EMC Celerra NSX system: The new EMC designed and built X-Blade 65 server technology supports 10Gb (gigabit) Ethernet with a maximum usable capacity of 168 terabytes in a 7+1 configuration.

Comparing the overall economics of these new EMC Celerra NS series systems with standard Network Appliance filers, the new Celerra NS systems delivers more value, both in advanced functionality included with the system and in price/performance. The new Celerra NS40 system offers up to 46% better price performance when compared with a similarly configured Network Appliance FAS320C. The Celerra NS series systems also deliver other significant advantages, including gateway upgradeability, advanced clustering capabilities, better capacity utilization, array-based RAID configurability, free snapshot restore functionality, sustained service levels in failover scenarios and EMCЎ¦s industry-leading service and support.

The EMC Celerra family of IP storage systems lead the industry in delivering high availability with capabilities like an active-passive N+1 clustering architecture, controller-based RAID and protection from single points of failure from the network to the disk drive. Offering the most comprehensive suite of built-in features including snapshots, automated volume management, file migration APIs and virtual (thin) provisioning, Celerra systems offers advanced functionality while minimizing management complexity. These capabilities distinguish Celerra technology as the ideal foundation for an IP-based information lifecycle management strategy, especially when leveraged in combination with other best-of-breed technologies from EMC to deliver policy-based file mobility and archiving (EMC DiskXtender software), dynamic file virtualization (EMC Rainfinity software), performance optimization (EMC MPFSi software), advanced network management (EMC Smarts software), information classification and IT service management (EMC Infoscape software ), and IP-based fixed content storage (EMC Centera systems).

EMC Celerra NS series systems go through rigorous system-level testing and validation in Microsoft and Oracle environments. EMC offers a series of solutions and services to help enterprise customers of all sizes enhance overall performance, simplify storage and server management and consolidate applications and servers into a single IP storage system that combines NAS and iSCSI for improved total cost of ownership.

With many midsize enterprises constrained by limited IT resources, new EMC solutions are designed specifically to help both customers and partners streamline implementations using documented best-practices, reference architectures and testing. They include: EMC Assessment for Oracle RAC; EMC Solutions for Oracle RAC ЎV Consolidation, Backup and Protection; EMC Assessment for Microsoft SQL Server 2005; EMC Consolidation Solutions for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and EMC Assessment for Microsoft Exchange 2003 and EMC Solutions for Microsoft Exchange 2003 ЎV Consolidation, Archive, Backup and Protection.
