LAS VEGAS, Nevada: As part of an expanded strategic partnership with Microsoft to develop innovative, tightly integrated automated networked storage solutions for Windows, EMC Corporation introduced the first in a new family of Windows Powered Network Attached Storage (NAS) products: the EMC NetWin 200.


The new integrated NAS offering combines Microsoft Windows technology and EMC"s CLARiiON networked storage platform. The NetWin 200 system is the new entry point into EMC"s NAS product family, coupling the power of Windows Powered NAS with EMC"s proven CLARiiON CX networked storage platforms.

Ideal for Windows Powered NAS customers looking for high availability, larger storage capacities, and advanced storage-based functionality, the NetWin 200 systems will elevate the reach of Windows Powered NAS beyond offerings currently in the marketplace.

NetWin 200 systems will enable integrated storage array management from Windows Powered NAS, seamlessly integrate CLARiiON"s storage functionality with Windows Powered NAS, and will be fully supported by EMC"s OnCourse software, providing automated distribution of files across the enterprise in a simple, consistent fashion.

The NetWin 200 can be fully managed from either a Windows or EMC ControlCenter environment. EMC"s Executive Vice President of Platform Operations, David Donatelli, said, "With the introduction of NetWin, EMC can now offer customers the broadest, most scalable family of NAS offerings in the industry." The EMC NetWin 200 will be available in the third quarter with list prices starting at $50,000.
