All EMC storage products share the capability to protect, manage, and share information within an organization. When advances in hardware, software, connectivity, or disk technology offer enhanced capabilities, they are easily and economically integrated into CLARiiON systems. The basic system architecture remains constant while individual elements are added or replaced. Designed-in investment protection is a hallmark of all EMC storage systems. EMC will continue to introduce advanced technology and features into the CLARiiON family, maintaining the lead in performance, information availability and protection, and many other customer requirements.
