EMC Buys Legato - Opinion

EMC announced today their intention of buying Legato Corporation. The deal is valued at $1.3B, based upon yesterday’s closing price of $11.76 per share for EMC shares. It is expected to close before year-end 2003. We think this is a good deal for both sides.

NetApp Open Systems SnapVault

Data protection for remote offices has become a hot topic in the IT industry. New innovative technologies and approaches to data protection, like Wide Area Data Services (WDS) and next generation disk-based backup technologies, are challenging the need to do tape backup altogether in the remote office. Furthermore, the role and market position of traditional backup vendors, like Symantec/Veritas, EMC/Legato, CA and IBM, hang in the balance as the processes and approaches to data protection change in both the data center and the remote office.

EMC Symmetrix DMX-3950

In 2003 EMC introduced the Symmetrix DMX (Direct Matrix Architecture) high-end storage array in a groundbreaking modular format. EMC continued to evolve the line, introducing the DMX-3 in 2006. EMC’s latest DMX iteration is the Symmetrix DMX-3 model 950, which EMC is positioning as an entry-level high-end storage array that offers efficient power usage in a compact footprint. EMC is targeting high-end storage users who want more capacity and performance along with remote replication, but who are stymied by a lack of space in the data center as well as their mounting energy bills.

SAN Symphony 6.0

Server virtualization today is a hot topic. Enterprises everywhere are rapidly implementing virtualized servers in a quest for better resource utilization, simplified management, and a more flexible infrastructure. Over 85% of these virtualized servers use a SAN and a shared storage model. Unfortunately, server virtualization with shared storage exacerbates pre-existing storage management issues, and in many cases creates new challenges not present in a purely physical world.

EMC’s Next Generation Backup and Archival Strategy - Technology In Depth

With each passing year, we have watched enterprise backup and archive environments continue to rise in both architectural and management complexity. When we look under the covers, it seems companies no longer have a single data protection strategy, but rather multiple point strategies for various functional areas, locations, or processes. We believe this is a seriously big problem if left unaddressed by the industry. In our research, we have discovered that a good part of this condition results from the unintentional ad hoc cobbling together of point products required to address the increasingly diverse backup and archiving needs of an enterprise. Ultimately, when we look outside the data center to also include remote and branch offices, workgroups and departments, as well as multiple data centers, the challenge of federating these various data protection schema appears quite daunting.
