EMC CLARiiON CX4: Product Info

EMC CLARiiON Family; Get the high availability, scalability, and flexibility you need to manage and consolidate more data. Combine easy-to-use midrange networked storage with innovative technology and robust software capabilities. The EMC CLARiiON Family consists of the AX, CX3 and CX4 series.


The EMC CLARiiON CX4 series with UltraFlex technology is based on a breakthrough architecture and extensive technological innovation, providing a midrange storage solution that cannot be matched by any competitor. The CX4 series with UltraFlex technology delivers industry-leading application performance, and new levels of scalability, reliability, flexibility, and affordability. It also includes new levels of ease of use, making the CX4 easy to install, manage, and scale. The CX4 is the fourth-generation CX series, and continues EMC's commitment to maximizing customers' investments in CLARiiON technology by ensuring that existing resources and capital assets are optimally utilized as customers adopt new technology.


The unique modularity of the UltraFlex technology allows you to use a combination of protocols within a single storage system. The CX4's architecture is based on state of the art I/O interconnect PCI Express technology, enabling it to provide high bandwidth and low latency. Furthermore, as your requirements change, you can use CLARiiON's unique virtual LUN technology to dynamically move data from one tier of storage to a higher or lower tier within the same CX4 storage system.


The breakthrough CX4 architecture delivers cutting edge performance, including the highest levels of resiliency and availability; tiered storage flexibility; and powerful, easy to use interfaces. CX4's UltraFlex technology provides you with the flexibility of using a combination of FC and iSCSI connections.


Initial tiered storage configurations are simplified due to the CX4's ability to detect the characteristics of drives as they are added. Furthermore, as your requirements change, CLARiiON's unique virtual LUN technology can move data from one tier of storage to a higher or lower tier of storage without disrupting the host application.

EMC CLARiiON CX4 delivers:
