EMC plays the name game
Technology company trademarks VNX to match Symmetrix lines
EMC has registered a new trademark: VNX.
The company quite likes product or technology names headed up with the letter V - for virtualisation.
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. ®
