EMC Has Announced the End-of-Life for DiskXtender and Has Approved Seven10 Storfirst Storage Software as Its Replacement

Salt Lake City, Utah – MetaSource, the leading distributor of EMC ApplicationXtender, Captiva and InfoArchive today announces that Seven10 has been approved by EMC to replace DiskXtender, which has reached its end-of-life.

Additionally, MetaSource partners will have access to an aggressively priced bundle to provide DiskXtender users, which includes a DiskXtender migration service, standard file system interface into legacy and new storage and a full year of Storfirst software maintenance.

EMC DiskXtender End-of-Life

On December 31, 2015, EMC Corporation issued an end-of-life statement to customers using DiskXtender
(DX) Hierarchial Storage Management (HSM) software. Additionally, DX will no longer be supported as of December 31, 2017. For next generation storage management, EMC now recommends Seven10’s Storfirst Gateway technology to replace DX.

    cloud, object, and NAS
