New relationship promises to provide customers with a complete Solaris-based platform that delivers a high level of performance and functionality.

Fujitsu Technology Solutions announced an expanded storage alliance with EMC, a provider of enterprise storage, in which Fujitsu will now resell the new EMC CLARiiON CX600 storage systems and software. The two companies will also work together to co-market and deliver comprehensive infrastructure solutions and services for customers that want a cost-effective single source for systems, software, and services.

According to the companies, the combination of Fujitsu and EMC offerings will enable customers to optimize service delivery and realize higher availability, operational efficiencies, and control through complete IT infrastructure solutions. Unique to any other industry offering, customers receive exceptional cross-platform integration, interoperability, data access, and multi-vendor services and support.

"The combination of the EMC CLARiiON CX600 systems and software with Fujitsu's Primepower servers and IT infrastructure services will be hard for our competitors to match," said Gregg Ambulos, EMC's vice president of Global Channels. "The strong relationship between EMC and Fujitsu provides customers with a complete Solaris based platform that delivers the highest levels of performance and functionality. The addition of the CLARiiON CX600 and new EMC software into the Fujitsu lineup further strengthens the capabilities we're delivering to customers."
