McDATA(R) Corporation today announced it has expanded its relationship with EMC Corporation, whereby EMC will sell McDATA's expanded family of products including its fibre-channel directors and fabric switches. EMC will continue to integrate McDATA management software into EMC's Connectrix Manager.

The expanded relationship enables EMC to sell McDATA's recently announced Galaxy-Class ED-6064 Director as the EMC Connectrix ED-64M director. The Galaxy-ClassED- 6064 Director, according to McData, provides a 200 percent improvement in rack density over competitive products. Under this agreement, EMC will also sell McDATA's ES-3032 and ES-3016 fabric switches as the EMC Connectrix DS-32M and DS-16M, respectively, which are targeted for the mid-range environment and incorporate many of the high availability features of the director products.

"This expanded relationship allows us to extend McDATA's family of products across our full line of Symmetrix(R) and CLARiiON(TM) storage systems," said Chuck Hollis, EMC's senior director of product marketing. "Incorporating McDATA's products into our offerings widens EMC's already substantial lead in networked storage and provides customers additional options as they plan and expand their information storage networks."
