EMC Corp. introduced its CLARiiON AX100 networked storage with a retail value of $5,999.

Based on one of the company's patent-pending design and technology, the CLARiiON AX100 is a customer-installable networked storage system capable of storing up to 3TB of information with integrated functions for simple management and advanced protection.

President and CEO Joe Tucci said, "Our partners helped us define a market opportunity that was being underserved. As customers realize that their current infrastructure can't support their huge information growth, our partners are in a unique position to integrate the CLARiiON AX100, a system that meets the budget needs of even the most cost-conscious customers."

Claimed by EMC to feature easy installment, usage and maintenance, the product was designed as a cost-effective solution to allow customers, for the first time, to move from internal server-based disks to external direct-attached, SAN or NAS environments. Incorporating the data integrity, availability and RAID technologies of the CLARiiON CX family, the CLARiiON AX100 delivers high-capacity, cost-effective ATA storage in a compact 2U (or 3.5-inch) rack-mountable enclosure. Available in both single and dual controller configurations, all system components are customer-replaceable.

The product is pre-packaged and fully equipped with all the functionality required for set-up, management and data protection. Storage management functions range from a user-friendly interface for installation and monitoring to local space-saving snapshot replication for instant backup and recovery. The system also includes an automated path failover capability that facilitates data flow through alternate I/O channels in the event of a path failure between the server and the CLARiiON AX100. It offers a web-based interface for secure and remote management of the system from any standard Internet connection.

EMC has qualified the Brocade Silkworm 3250 VL2E 8-port Fiber Channel switch as well as the Emulex LP101-E and LP982-E and QLogic QLA200-E and QLA2340-E HBAs for use with the CLARiiON AX100.

Supporting Windows, Linux and Netware operating environments, the system is available from Dell, Tech Data, Fujitsu-Siemens, Arrow Electronics Inc., Avnet Hall-Mark, Bell Micro, MTI, Ideal, CDW, OpenWay, Samsung, Skydata, Bull and Source.
