EMC CLARiiON AX4 Allows SMBs to Build Custom Architectures Affordably
"Lowe’s experience with deploying the EMC CLARiiON AX4 in a custom-designed, high-availability architecture highlights what sets the system apart when pitted against other SMB storage solutions in its class. Unlike most other products, the AX4 is not merely a rigid set of hardware crammed into a controller box. Instead, it is a full-fledged SAN with features and capabilities you’d expect from a similar enterprise-level solution, albeit in a much-scaled-down version. Unlike preassembled storage hardware, the highly customizable EMC AX series SANs allow storage architects to design and build systems of varying size, complexity, and priority. For the IT departments of SMBs, this means being able to provide a storage solution uniquely suited to the specific needs of their parent organizations while staying within the company’s prescribed IT budget."
