EMC plays the name game

Technology company trademarks VNX to match Symmetrix lines

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

EMC has registered a new trademark: VNX.

The company quite likes product or technology names headed up with the letter V - for virtualisation.

VMAX is the latest high-end Symmetrix array and VPLEX is the federation technology for these arrays.

There are Celerra NX4 and NX3e products, unified file and block access arrays, and we know that some kind of unification of block access CLARiiON and file/iSCSI access Celerra arrays is coming some time in the first half of next year. VNX would be a nice name for such a combined CLARiiON/Celerra offering, bringing its naming in line with the Symmetrix arrays. ®
