Original Press Release:
EMC CLARiiON CX600; Scalable, High-Performance Enterprise Storage with Unsurpassed Software Capability
On August 12th, EMC will introduce the EMC CLARiiON CX600, and EMC will take unequivocal price/performance leadership in the mid-tier of the information storage industry. Offering best-in-class performance at 15% less cost of our nearest competition, the CX600 is the first member of CLARiiON's 6th generation storage platform. Providing end-to-end 2Gb Fibre Channel, 17.5 terabytes of capacity and 100% of the CLARiiON's leading software functionality (ex: Navisphere, SnapView & MirrorView) available today and backward compatible.
In the manufacturing industry, compute and image intensive applications like software development and CAD/CAM require the new CLARiiON CX600's high-sustained throughput. The CX600 also fits well in engineering project work like product life cycle initiatives where file sharing requirements are mission critical to reducing the time to market and engineering change order processes. Additionally, distributed plant floor automation requires CX600's density, small configuration and price. The remote management capabilities of the new CX600 can reduce IT staff requirements for plant floors and administrative areas. Applications include CAD/CAM, Simulation, Finite Element Modeling, distribution partner, and Supply Chain Management.
