EMC saves space

Capacity doubled, floor space halved with new technology

EMC has announced a new higher-density configuration of its Clariion CX4 midrange storage array and Celerra network-attached storage (NAS) gateway device, offering twice the capacity of previous systems in half the floor space.

The new systems will also support lower-power 2TB SATA drives, replacing the 1TB drives supported by earlier systems.

A Clariion array can support up to 480 drives, or 960TB of raw capacity. A previous Clariion model array would have taken up six datacentre floor tiles, while the new model takes up three.

The higher density is achieved through a re-architecture of the frame, making it 127 mm deeper and so that two disk drive trays now fit front to back.
