EMC on Monday announced a number of changes to its virtual tape library (VTL) product lineup.
The changes to the Clariion Disk Library family include a new entry-level Clariion DL210 model for mid-size enterprises and branch offices, and for the whole line, virtual tape "shredding" capability for deleting data to meet business and regulatory demands.
EMC is also integrating its NetWorker 7.3 backup and recovery software with the Clariion Disk Library line for better media management capabilities. The Hopkinton, Mass.-based storage giant also announced support for the IBM System i (formerly iSeries) platform, and command line interface (CLI) support.
The Clariion DL210 uses 500GB Serial ATA (SATA) disk drives and can scale from four to 24 terabytes of capacity. The appliance enables disk-based backup and restore without requiring customers to change their current operations or backup infrastructures by emulating open systems tape libraries, drives and media. It offers remote replication capabilities and up to 3:1 compression.
