Storage giant EMC is out with a number of new products for its Flash, enterprise storage and Scale-Out NAS portfolios.

Among them are XtremIO 3.0, which offers new features and configurations, ecosystem integrations,and business programs for EMC XtremIO all-flash arrays. Collectively, these offer more scale, more capabilities, and more support for consolidated, virtualized, and performance-hungry workloads, the company said.

Also new is the VMAX3 Family, which transforms VMAX from enterprise storage to an enterprise data service platform. The platform enables customers to regain control of where best to run specific workloads, within the data center or in the public cloud. VMAX3 is the foundation for hybrid cloud as IT looks to deliver storage-as-a-service.

Last but not least, EMC announced a major upgrade to EMC Isilon OneFS, new Isilon platforms and new solutions that reinforce what the company says is the industry’s first enterprise-grade, scale-out Data Lake. The new products and capabilities, which include ongoing support for HDFS, help customers advance their ability to ingest, store, protect and manage massive amounts of unstructured data.

Beyond products, EMC on Tuesday said it plans to acquire TwinStrata, a storage-management company. Financial terms were not disclosed. TwinStrata developed CloudArray, a platform that gives enterprises the opportunity to move data stored on-premises into private or public clouds.
