HOPKINTON, MA - March 08, 2011 -
EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced EMC® VNXe® and VNX® unified storage solutions (introduced in January 2011) are now available and shipping worldwide. The systems are available from both EMC and a wide range of distributors and resellers.
"Our customers want storage that is simple, reliable and able to seamlessly integrate with the applications they use to run their business. EMC has hit a home run with the VNX family, making it easy for customers to deploy. They've made the investment to help us make VNX the foundation of our comprehensive solutions with some of the most extensive training we've seen," said Daniel Serpico, President of FusionStorm.
"EMC's VNX and VNXe have enabled ICI to expand its reach into midrange and SMB markets. To keep up with the accelerated demand that ICI is already seeing with the VNXe in the SMB space, ICI is adding more members to its SMB focused team. EMC has also made it easier than ever for partners to complete product training in no time at all," said Jamie Shepard, EVP, Technology Solutions at International Computerware, Inc. (ICI).
The general availability of the VNX family of unified storage systems coincides with the new EMC 25% more efficient storage guarantee, highlighting the simplicity, efficiency and power of EMC's unified storage offerings.
The general availability of VNX and VNXe complete a recent string of record breaking unified storage news coming from EMC, which maintained its standing as the top provider of external disk storage systems for the 14th consecutive year in factory revenue, according to the latest IDC Worldwide Quarterly Disk Storage Systems Tracker, March 2011 (see related announcement). Additionally, in February EMC shattered benchmark performance records with a Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation benchmark (see SPECsfs2008_nfs.v3).
"When EMC unveiled the new VNX family, we made a very public and worldwide commitment to our customers — and channel partners — that we had developed and would deliver the industry's most simple, efficient, powerful and affordable unified storage solution in the market. Since then, we've spoken with thousands of customers and partners and enthusiasm, interest and demand for the VNXe and VNX have been excellent. We're looking forward to helping customers take advantage of the many features of our unified solutions to more easily and more effectively manage their information," said Rich Napolitano, President, Unified Storage Division at EMC Corporation.
