EMC is targeting small businesses and branch offices with a new low-end Celerra storage product.
The Celerra NX4, which can be deployed in networked-attached storage, iSCSI, or Fibre Channel storage-area network systems, is ideal for consolidating distributed file servers and storage into a single platform, EMC says. Highlights include thin provisioning, snapshot technology for data recovery and backups, and a web-based console that automates management of storage volumes.
With SAS and SATA drives, the NX4 provides from 4TB to 60TB of storage. EMC says the NX4 will compete against NetApp's FAS2020A system.
