EMC CLARiiON storage systems

EMC stated that the ESN Manager now allows customers to discover, zone, device mask and report on EMC CLARiiON enterprise storage systems.

Single-view, multi-vendor switch management

EMC stated that the ESN Manager now provides the ability to zone and manage multi-vendor switches, including those from Brocade, EMC and McDATA in the same fabric from a single management tool.
