HOPKINTON, MA, August 21, 2012 - 

EMC's VNXe3150 unified storage system, combining 50% more performance and capacity per rack unit with the simplicity for which the award-winning VNXe® line is known, is now generally available worldwide. Fully optimized for virtualization, VNXe3150 retains its industry-leading simplicity for IT generalists in small to medium-sized businesses, as well as departments in enterprises and government. The VNXe3150 delivers these new capabilities, and more, at sub-$10K entry level list pricing.

With the availability of the VNXe3150, entry-level storage customers can maximize their virtual environments with added performance and capacity. VNXe3150 supports the move to a virtualized environment through integrations with Microsoft Hyper V and VMware vSphere, providing support in any hypervisor environment. Additionally, VNXe3150 is a key component of EMC's VSPEX Proven Infrastructure, which offers a wide range of choices for industry-leading virtualization, server, network, storage and data protection for EMC customers. The VNXe3150 also features ease of use with EMC's industry-acclaimed Unisphere® storage management interface.

Even an hour of downtime can have a catastrophic impact on today's businesses — but 100% uptime can come with a hefty price tag, viewed as a necessary operational cost. By leveraging VNXe3150 in virtualized environments, customers can minimize downtime while achieving significant power cost savings and enjoying simplified management, ultimately benefitting the bottom line.

VNXe3150 is sold exclusively through EMC's Velocity™ Partner Program.
