'Plug and play' storage system from EMC

EMC expects the August release of its latest Celerra NS entry-level storage systems will boost business for the channel in New Zealand.

The systems support network-attached iSCSI and fibre channel SAN protocols and the vendor says they can be installed and up and running in 15 minutes.

EMC plans new online training and streamlining of ordering systems to make it easier for partners to implement the Celerra systems for end users.

“It’s the perfect solution for our partners,” says product marketing manager Shane Moore. “Partners will offer this system first because it does everything. We can get it running within 15 minutes of plugging it into an IP network.”

Moore says EMC customers are asking for storage that is easy to install and use and Celerra offers significant performance and energy efficiency improvements for its $30,000 price tag.

As well, among EMC’s latest releases is the Rainfinity appliance for file movement and archiving. Pitched at entry level, it uses wizards to enable the setup of automated file management policies to move files across storage tiers.

Country manager Craig Stoddart says the vendor wants to continue recent growth on the back of the product releases.
