EMC machine reaches five 9 level

EMC Corp. announced that the EMC CLARiiON CX3 UltraScale line of networked storage systems is delivering a midrange storage array with Five 9s availability ─ 99.999 per cent of uptime.

Traditionally, only high-end storage systems designed for the most mission-critical applications have delivered Five 9s availability, EMC said.

EMC designed an entirely new midrange architecture ─ UltraScale ─ to deliver this level of availability, scalable for storage. Over the past year, EMC utilized a comprehensive Six Sigma-based approach to track and calculate availability metrics of both the Fibre Channel and Fibre Channel/iSCSI versions of the EMC CLARiiON CX3 UltraScale systems, including a thorough analysis of the root cause of unplanned customer system downtime whether hardware, software or process-related.

Brad Nisbet, Program Manager at IDC, said today, customers of all sizes expect midrange platforms to have high-end networked storage features and capabilities that were once the province of large organizations, including Five 9s availability.
