EMC Symmetrix V-Max storage systems enables Bull to upscale its virtualized server-storage into the data center environment
French IT firm Bull has announced the availability for shipment of EMC’s new high-end Symmetrix V-Max storage systems within Bull StoreWay storage systems.
Central to the Bull storage product portfolio, the Symmetrix V-Max will enable Bull to upscale its virtualized server-storage into the mission-critical data center environment while meeting ever more demanding SLA requirements and customer pressure for optimized storage infrastructures that reduce investment and management costs, said Bull.
According to Bull, the Symmetrix V-Max storage systems are based on the new virtual matrix architecture technology which interconnects multiple V-Max engines. Each V-Max engine contains its own redundant CPU, memory and host/disk connectivity.
Benoit Hallez, director of Bull’s StoreWay business unit, said: Symmetrix has been the reference in high-end storage for over a decade and this announcement will allow our customers to benefit from the flexibility and cost optimization of innovative features such as automated provisioning and data tiering, combined with the rock-solid reliability and performance that our Symmetrix customers demand. This combination is unique in the market today.
