What Type of EMC Storage Hardware is Right for Your Organization?
"Unified Storage Unified storage combines block-level storage and file-level storage into one platform. A popular example is the EMC VNX unified storage line, which can use both mechanical and solid-state EMC hard drives, available from storage providers, like Tab Data Systems. Storage managers are given free rein over what portions of the storage unit are used as either block-level or file-level storage. Good for: Organizations that see heavy use of both block-level and file-level storage. Reducing processing overhead and improving storage performance by replacing volumes on block-level storage designed strictly for file-level storage use. Reducing the amount of physical space needed to house an organization’s entire storage infrastructure when the organization uses both block-level and file-level storage devices."
