Brocade to power EMC XtremIO 4.0 all-flash storage arrays

Brocade today said that EMC will deploy its Fibre Channel and IP-based storage networking technologies as a key component for customer solutions based on the new EMC XtremIO 4.0 all-flash storage arrays.

The company in a statement said XtremIO 4.0, a free software upgrade for XtremIO v3.X arrays, will enable petabyte-scale configurations, on-demand non-disruptive cluster expansion, native replication, and up to 33 percent more performance to ensure support for hybrid-cloud and private-cloud storage services.

With XtremIO 4.0, customers can transform their data centers by leveraging the combination of workload acceleration, consolidation, and agility to enable true consolidation of multiple mixed Tier 1 and Tier 2 workloads.

Jack Rondoni, vice president, storage networking, at Brocade, said: “Brocade storage fabrics complement XtremIO storage by unleashing the performance and availability required to address stringent SLAs for critical Fibre Channel and IP storage workloads.”
