EMC Corporation expanded the EMC Centera family of content addressed storage (CAS) systems to address the fixed content archiving needs of midsize enterprises. As an extension of EMC’s Making Storage Simple approach, the lower-capacity and lower-cost EMC Centera four-node configuration delivers the same content and self management features available in all Centera configurations. A key part of Making Storage Simple is a broad set of Express Solutions that are pretested and sized to meet the needs of this market. The new Centera configuration will be integrated into these solutions. For example, the EMC Express Solutions for Archiving and Express Solutions for E-mail, which combine EMC systems, software and services are now available with the new Centera four-node configuration. The Centera four-node configuration will be available from EMC and partners this month. It offers 2.2TB of usable capacity at a 35% lower base list price than the previous Centera entry point. http://www.emc.com
