EMC's Russo said that EMC for now is addressing the question of unified storage with an optional gateway for now.
"This is because the initial target of the VMAXe is the entry point of the high-end market," she said. "And I can't comment on our future plans."
The new VMAXe now gives EMC a total of four different hardware platforms for its primary storage products, including the entry-level VNXe and VNX arrays and the higher-end VMAXe and VMAX arrays.
Russo countered any concerns about supporting multiple hardware platforms by saying that EMC has different products to serve different parts of the market. "One size does not fit all," she said.
