Cisco Systems is to sell EMC’s network attached storage (Nas) arrays as part of its portfolio of networking infrastructure...
products in order to offer users greater integration.
Cisco said that by combining its wide area file services (Wafs) technology with the EMC Nas family, users would be able to integrate branch office data into the data centre, to allow it to be centrally stored and accessed.
Through the agreement Cisco will sell and support the EMC NS Series/Integrated Nas products, along with the recently introduced Cisco File Engine, to provide a family of products for enterprise storage consolidation over wide-area networks.
The integrated solution will be sold and supported by Cisco directly and through its worldwide channel partners.
