Bangalore: EMC has announced new high-density configurations of its EMC CLARiiON CX4 and EMC Celerra Gateway systems. The new high-density configurations feature 5,400 rpm 2TB SATA drives that provide double the capacity of 1TB 7,200 rpm SATA drives but at 60 percent less power per GB, reports IT Analysis.

These latest configurations also support EMC spin down technology that powers down inactive disk drives to reduce power requirements by up to 65 percent over traditional always-spinning solutions. In combination with high-performance enterprise flash drives, and storage efficiency technologies such as EMC FAST, these solutions target organizations that are seeking to more easily manage the growth of storage-intensive applications while reducing power consumption, cooling costs, and floor space requirements in the datacenter or remote office locations.

The high-density CLARiiON CX4 configurations support up to 390 2TB, 5,400, and 7,200 rpm SATA drives as well as high-performance flash drives in a single rack that requires half the floor space and number of power connections over conventional racks with full access to all disk drives from the front of the rack. Organizations that desire CIFS and NFS support can select the high-density Celerra Gateway system, which is based on the CLARiiON CX4.

The new high-density CLARiiON and Celerra Gateway configurations are now available worldwide. EMC has indicated that it will make high-density EMC Celerra unified storage system configurations available later in 2010.
