Dell EMC PowerMax
The exciting new Dell EMC PowerMax family of arrays includes two members. The PowerMax 8000 delivers unparalleled performance as a mission-critical, multi-controller platform, and uses the latest Intel® Xeon® E5-2697 v4 processors. With higher capacity 3.84TB and 7.68TB enterprise flash drives and a scale-out architecture, the PowerMax 8000 offers a compelling value proposition. Common to all members of the PowerMax family, your data always resides in the fastest possible tier (Diamond) to deliver the highest IOPS throughput and lowest possible response times.
PowerMax arrays extend the long tradition of Dell EMC reliability, availability and serviceability that customers have come to expect. Ranging from 1 to 8 Bricks packaged in dual racks along with their associated engines and DAEs, the NVMe family offers unprecedented scale and footprint efficiency. The built-in storage hypervisor enables PowerMax to offer unified block and file support through embedded NAS (eNAS), as well as embedded management.
PowerMax arrays are available in two software packages, the standard “Essentials” package and the feature rich “Pro” package, which makes ordering easy. The Pro package includes SRDF S/A/STAR/Metro, Data at Rest Encryption, eNAS, and Storage Resource Manager (SRM) to name a few, along with our VASA Provider Certified support for VVols. Finally, PowerMax arrays come fully pre-configured out of the factory to significantly shorten the time to first I/O.
