Dell to Sell EMC Unified Storage System

Dell Inc. (Nasdaq: DELL) on Tuesday said early next year it will begin selling EMC Corp. (NYSE: EMC)'s Celerra NX4 unified storage system.

The multiprotocol NX4 can be used for network-attached or iSCSI storage, or within a storage area network. The system scales up to 60 drives and can support one or two blade servers.

The product supports SAS and SATA hard drives and is certified for operating within VMware-based virtualization environments and as storage for Microsoft Corp.
