Dell moves into disaster recovery

Dell Computer's strategic relationship with storage manufacturer EMC has resulted in the release of a disc array aimed at disaster recovery, datacentres and streaming applications, writes Eric Doyle.

The Dell/EMC CX600, is based on a 2Gbyte Fibre Channel storage area network with eight front-end optical ports, each delivering up to 200mbps throughput.

It can be scaled up to 17.5Tbytes capacity with the addition of extra disc array enclosures.

The unit can be used as a standard data storage system but compatibility with other Dell/EMC technology also allows it to act as a back-up facility for products such as Powervault.

Disaster recovery from a remote site is supported by Dell's Mirrorview software, which provides a high-availability link between geographically separate locations. Snapview software provides the supporting back-up and recovery facilities.

Prices for the Dell/EMC CX600 start at £72,000.
