EMC Expands Mid-Tier Storage Products

   EMC has expanded its Network Attached Storage (NAS) offerings with the release of new products ranging from NAS gateways to Windows Storage Server 2003 NAS systems. EMC is targeting the new products at the mid-tier networked storage market.

   The new offerings include the EMC Celerra NS600GS (a single Data Mover configuration with a price of $63,000) and EMC Celerra NS600G (a dual Data Mover costing $97,000) NAS gateways, which enable integration of NAS functionality into existing EMC CLARiiON CX600 and EMC CLARiiON CX400 Fibre Channel systems; the EMC Celerra NS600S ($114,000 for 1TB configuration), an entry-level single Data Mover NAS device for the EMC Celerra NS600 series; and EMC NetWin 200 ($32,000 for the 500GB configuration), the company's first device to support Microsoft's recently released Windows Storage Server 2003. The NetWin 200 system is based on the CLARiiON CX200 network storage platform. Other vendors in the Windows Storage Server 2003 market include Iomega and EMC partner Dell.

   EMC said the release of NetWin 200 won't affect the company's relationship with Dell, which sells its own line of NAS solutions under the PowerVault brand. According to EMC, the company isn't looking to sell its system to the lower end of the Windows Storage Server 2003 market, which Dell targets. EMC also announced support for low-cost ATA disk drives in its EMC Celerra NS600 and EMC Celerra NS600G systems and in its EMC Celerra CNS clustered environments. EMC hopes customers will use the ATA technology for backup-to-disk solutions.
