EMC to announce enhancements to Symmetrix arrays

Data storage market leader EMC is soon expected to announce a new model of its high-end Symmetrix storage array.

According to a source familiar with the enhancements, expected to be announced on September 10, the company plans to increase the throughput on the RAID box from its front end to the disk drives, which have leapt in storage capacity up to 181GB per drive.

EMC said today only that it plans to unveil "significant new information storage technologies" that will help its enterprise customers manage their storage more rapidly, "while driving down the total cost of ownership of their information storage infrastructure."

A spokesman for the company declined further comment on the new technologies.

Currently, the largest Symmetrix box, the 8000 series, scales from 72GB to 69.5TB and connects to 250 different server models and any combination of operating systems including mainframes, Unix, Microsoft Windows, Linux and AS/400.
