EMC Will Extend Basic Clariion Management to ControlCenter

By CBR Staff Writer

Storage market leader EMC Corp plans to add basic management functions for products from the Clariion division it acquired as part of the Data General purchase (CI No 3,721) to the ControlCenter management software package launched last month in the US (CI No 3,777).

EMC VP and chief marketing technical officer James Rothnie said the company will be adding basic management for Clariion to ControlCenter in a matter of months in order to address the branch office market. The logic here is that, while a corporation’s data center will be running on Symmetrix storage, it will be able to put Clariion arrays into the branch offices and manage them remotely from head office. That said, Rothnie admitted that more sophisticated elements of ControlCenter’s storage management capabilities are Symmetrix-specific and will not be adaptable to Clariion kit in the short to medium term.

Aside from the branch office market, EMC also wants to use Clariion to strengthen its presence in medium-sized companies’where Symmetrix wouldn’t be economically justifiable, said Rothnie. In that case, the $100,000-$200,000 price tag typically attached to ControlCenter would also be beyond the customer’s pocket, but for that market, Clariion has its own management package called Navisphere.
