EMC Clariion


I’m typically in the position of designing storage solutions for external customers based upon established protocols and best practices here at EMC.  We design based on our work with Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, etc. and the solutions development that happens with these partners.  It’s definitely an exciting challenge to take a customer’s needs and wrap them into a solution set that allows for performance, capacity, and future growth.  What’s even more exciting, however, is getting the chance to design and implement a storage solution for an internal “customer.”  I figured this would be a good chance to lay out the work that goes on in designing a storage solution coupled with a VMware host solution as well.

I’ll break this journey into several parts and include the appropriate Visios (as permitted).  So, without further ado, let’s get started!!!

So, in my article yesterday, I gave a global view of a very simple storage system for the future. Since I LOVE this type of conjecture and theoretics (is that a word?), I decided to take this a step further and flesh out some of the other intricacies of the design.  Check out the image below and then click through to read the rest.

So, it’s been awhile since we last did one of these posts.  To that end, let’s dive in and see what people are looking for these days.

Search Term(s):  EMC CX4, Clariion CX4, EMC Clariion CX4

No suprises here, but then again, I can’t talk about the CX4 just yet.  Suffice it to say, I’ll be prepping a few auto-posts on the CX4 (and another product that may be announced during the same timefram) to give you a high level overview of such.  There IS a post out there @ Block and Files that is somewhat correct but….somewhat off. 😉  You’ll get the “truth” on Monday.
