EMC will announce a souped-up Celerra product line with capacity upgrades, file-level de-duplication and flash solid state drive (SSD) options later this quarter in a direct charge at NetApp's FAS3000 line.

Decisive, innovative, ground breaking, awe inspiring ...... all these things, EMC are not. Congratulations are due to them for their 'tick in the box' attitude to solution availability. Now watch as the market completely ignore the irrelevant.
Doesn't matter if they put turbo's on the bloody thing, no f*ck*r, once its racked has a bloody clue how to use or configure it. Takes the fun out of needing or being a sys adm as no one but EMC can add or remove anyone. Takes 15th Line Support to another level and the users data can go bye bye for months....Give me back Simple !!!
Sounds like a hodge podge
Navisphere for disk management
Celerra GUI for file level management
Celerra Replicator GUI ?
Obviously a play against NetApp, who already have some of this check the box functionality, but simple this is not. By the way, NetApp's long list of exceptions on dedup in production and their reliance on command line makes all of this stuff look so six years ago.
