Features: EMC Corp. has announced five new storage solutions targeted at midsize companies.

EMC introduced the EMC CLARiiON CX3-10 UltraScale networked storage system, a new entry point into its market-leading series of full 4Gb/s storage arrays; new EMC RecoverPoint/SE software, an entry point for network-based asynchronous replication in mid-tier storage environments; and three solutions to help midsize businesses consolidate, back up, archive and protect their Microsoft SQL Server 2005, Microsoft Exchange 2003 and Oracle RAC 10g environments.

Barbara Robidoux, EMC’s vice president of Storage Product Marketing, said, "For many companies, Oracle and Microsoft applications are the heart of the business, and we are further helping them by combining the market-leading CLARiiON CX3 platform with fully validated, proven solutions and EMC blueprints that allow partners and customers to easily deploy an information infrastructure."

EMC said in a statement that the new CLARiiON CX3-10 system can scale to 30TB of capacity. It features combined Fibre Channel and iSCSI connectivity within the same array, providing customers with maximum deployment flexibility and highly efficient storage consolidation.

The CLARiiON CX3-10 FC/iSCSI system joins the CX3-20, CX3-40 and CX3-80 models in supporting all CLARiiON array-based software functionality, including data management, replication and mobility.

The new EMC RecoverPoint/SE software is part of the RecoverPoint family and specifically designed for network-based replication between any two CLARiiON CX and/or CLARiiON CX3 UltraScale systems.

This data protection solution provides customers with any point-in-time recovery of their data from events including database corruption, server failures, software errors, viruses, end-user errors and other events that can take down the operations of an entire data center or IT facility.

The EMC Reference Architectures and Assessment Services for Microsoft Exchange
2003 and Microsoft SQL Server 2005 provide EMC partners with documented
blueprints and best practices for implementing the most cost-effective
consolidation, backup and disaster recovery solutions for midsize customers.

EMC CLARiiON CX3-10 UltraScaleThe
solution for Exchange 2003 also helps deliver proven archiving solutions to help
midsize customers manage information growth. The solutions combine the EMC
CLARiiON CX3 networked storage system and combinations of EMC’s industry-leading
information management software for backup/recovery, archiving and data

The EMC Reference Architecture and Assessment Service for Oracle RAC 10g helps
EMC partners speed deployments and improve their customers’ total cost of
ownership while helping them easily and affordably consolidate, backup, and
protect information.

These solutions combine the EMC CLARiiON CX3 networked storage system, EMC’s
rich replication and backup/recovery software with relevant Oracle technologies.
The EMC Assessment for Oracle RAC10g helps EMC partners customize and optimize
each solution for different application and database workloads and enhance ease
of deployment by leveraging documented EMC best practices and methodologies.

The CLARiiON CX3-10 system, RecoverPoint/SE software and the new Reference
Architectures and Assessment Services for Microsoft Exchange 2003, Microsoft SQL
Server 2005 and Oracle RAC 10g and are available immediately from EMC and its
authorized resellers, the statement added.
