Introduces CLARiiON Disk Library, Extends Backup-To-Disk
Benefits to Traditional Backup Environments
Corporation, the world leader in information storage
and management, has announced the EMC CLARiiON Disk
Library - creating a new option for high-speed backup
and recovery, the #1 storage challenge facing IT organizations
The CLARiiON Disk Library is a purpose-built appliance
that offers the immediate benefits of backup-to-disk
and a new alternative to traditional tape-based solutions.
Combining the power and reliability of CLARiiON technology
with cost-efficient ATA disk drives and 100% compatible
tape library emulation, the CLARiiON Disk Library offers
customers a proven, easy-to-deploy solution for rapid
backup and recovery requiring no changes to existing
applications or procedures. Representing 60-70% of total
storage management operations, the backup and recovery
process is typically a tape-oriented procedure that
may not be meeting business requirements. Through the
unique attributes and cost-efficiencies of the EMC CLARiiON
Disk Library, customers can now dramatically improve
service levels and information access while lowering
management costs. For more information, visit: http://www.emc.com/news/press_releases/viewUS.jsp?id=2160.
