Corporation style="background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; -moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-origin: padding; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous;">,

the

world leader in information infrastructure solutions, announced a

series of launches at an event held at EMC's Innovation and

Development Center in Singapore. Journalists from all across the Asia

Pacific region amassed at the Innovation Center for one of the three

global mega launch events that were held at Singapore, New York and

London. In conformity with the theme of the event 'Record Breakers',

EMC entered the Guinness Book of World Records with four marketing

stunts, announced by Chris Lee, VP-Marketing (APJ), EMC.

style="background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; -moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-origin: padding; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous;">The

company

introduced multiple new storage systems and software

features, with more than 40 new technologies and products in

all-including new arrays for SMBs, unified systems for the

mid-range, software for its high-end systems and disk-based backup

and recovery and archiving systems. face="Times New Roman, serif">The

company announced a significant array of disk-based backup

advancements that substantially alter the existing landscape for

backup and recovery-EMC Data Domain Global Deduplication Array

(GDA). This incorporates two of the new EMC Data Domain DD890

controllers, making the GDA the world's fastest deduplication

storage system. GDA also supports the EMC Data Domain Virtual Tape

Library software option. New high-end Data Domain DD890 and DD860

single controller systems also eclipse the throughput of competing

solutions by up to a factor of 8.

style="background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; -moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-origin: padding; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous;">“The

breadth

of offerings and level of product integration in EMC's

disk-based backup portfolio offers an unmatched set of capabilities

and enables users of EMC backup and recovery solutions to transform

their legacy infrastructure and further minimize the use of tape,”

said Shane Jackson, VP-Marketing, Backup Recovery Systems Division,

EMC.

style="background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; -moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-origin: padding; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous;">Another

of

the company's launches was EMC Data Domain Archiver, one of the

industry's first long-term retention system for backup and

archiving. The system delivers new operational efficiencies while

eliminating the costs and complexities associated with a tape-based

data retention approach. face="Times New Roman, serif">“With

the EMC Data Domain Archiver, customers can extend their backup

redesign efforts to address long-term data retention requirements-all

on a single disk-based deduplication storage system. This is a simple

and cost-effective approach for customers, and the solution is based

on the industry's leading deduplication storage solution,” stated

BJ Jenkins, President, Backup Recovery Systems Division, EMC.

style="background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; -moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-origin: padding; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous;">EMC

also

announced new software capabilities for its industry leading

Symmetrix VMAX storage systems, increasing performance and

simplifying the way petabytes (1 petabyte= 1,000 terabytes) of

information can be managed. The Symmetrix Enginuity software doubles

system performance with no hardware upgrade required. It fully

leverages Intel Xeon technology integrated into VMAX to deliver up to

twice as many OLTP transactions and DSS queries. face="Times New Roman, serif">“Data

growth is driven by trends like mission-critical virtual

applications, private clouds and Big Data applications. To manage and

secure that information, organizations will need a storage

infrastructure that is both powerful and smart,” said Brian

Gallagher, President, Symmetrix and Virtualization Product Group,

EMC.

'simple, efficient and affordable' said, “This is the most

significant mid-range announcement in EMC's 30-year history. The

VNX family sets the stage for all of our future products in EMC's

mid-range portfolio. We have converged the best attributes of EMC

CLARiiON storage area network (SAN) and EMC Celerra network attached

storage (NAS) systems into one powerful platform-armed with the

industry's most advanced automated tiering software to exploit the

benefits of SSDs. EMC brings tremendous simplicity and

enterprise-class storage to SMBs-affordably.” style="margin-top: 0.05in; margin-bottom: 0.05in; font-style: normal; line-height: 0.16in;">
