McDATA bites at EMC virtualisation opportunity

McDATA has added EMC's Rainfinity Global File Virtualisation to its ROC (Remote Office Consolidation) in order to help EMC customers consolidate, optimise                  and protect the data in their storage networks.

The company is a well-established provider of SAN products, services and other storage and networking solutions, helping customers build, globally connect, optimise and centrally manage data infrastructures across SAN, MAN and WAN environments. McDATA claims it is the trusted partner in the world’s largest data centres, connecting more than two-thirds of all networked data.

The ROC is a set of products and services that let companies consolidate, centrally manage and protect all remote office data types, without slowing the pace of real-time global business, the authors say. Rainfinity, adds the company, complements centralised file virtualisation and management to the ROC supports customers with even greater data protection and management efficiencies.

McDATA recently demonstrated its ROC solution, showing remote file access over a simulated SAN between Boston and Los Angeles. Remote office employees on the Los Angeles side of the network had read/write functionality across the WAN without, says the firm, impacting application performance or latency.
