EMC Targets Mainframe Storage

Arthur Cole

In a further sign of the continuing strength of the mainframe, vendors are once again rolling out technologies specifically geared to big iron.

 

The latest example comes from EMC, which this week launched the DLm4080 virtual tape library (VTL) for the IBM z Series. The system is available with either two or four tape emulators and offers up to 500 TB of raw storage using 1 TB SATA II drives and can deliver up to 600 MBps of throughput. RAID 6 data protection is included.

 

As you would expect from a mainframe solution, the DLm4080 is not cheap. Pricing will start at $850,000 when the system hits the market in March.

 

The company has also come out with new software for its RecoverPoint data protection appliances, which the company gained from a firm called Kashya acquired in 2006. The new system, now included as firmware on the CLARiiON CX3, allows replication and continuous data protection to take place simultaneously across remote datacenters.
