EMC Adds New Flash Capacity

Arthur Cole

EMC has upped the capacity and I/O capability of the Symmetrix DMX-4 storage system with a new set of Flash drives that the company says overcome many of the concerns over using SSD technology for mission-critical applications.


The new Enterprise Flash drives come in 200 and 400 GB configurations, and are compatible with EMC's interlocked storage cache system and the wear-leveling algorithms that provide a more efficient use of storage capacity.


The company claims they can cut the cost per GB some 76 percent compared to existing Fibre Channel drives, making them a more cost-effective solution for critical Tier 0 applications that are typically tied to short-stroked mechanical drives.


Expect to see the new drives available on the mid-range CLARiiON system and the Cellera unified storage system later this year.
