High-end storage array

Thursday, 30 July, 2009



The Symmetrix V-Max system incorporates Virtual Matrix Architecture with industry-standard components to deliver massive scalability - enabling systems that scale to hundreds of thousands of terabytes of storage and tens of millions of IOPS (input/output per second) supporting hundreds of thousands of VMware and other virtual machines in a single federated storage infrastructure.

Combined with the latest generation Enterprise Flash, fibre channel and SATA drives, the Symmetrix V-Max system allows users to cost effectively meet the widest range of storage requirements for high performance and high capacity in a single system.

The system automates storage provisioning, reducing the time and complexity of provisioning by 95%. Integration with many VMware features enables both server and storage resources to be provisioned on demand, with centralised management, reporting and control. In addition, EMC ControlCenter support for both the Symmetrix V-Max storage system and VMware will increase visibility and automate reporting across the virtual server and storage environments.

In tiered storage environments, Symmetrix V-Max systems enable data to be non-disruptively relocated to different storage tiers and RAID protections, including ultra-high-performing Enterprise Flash Drives, traditional fibre channel disk drives and high-capacity SATA disk drives based on business requirements. The Virtual Matrix Architecture allows customers to relocate more data in less time and with less impact to overall performance, while also maintaining local and remote replication activities to ensure continuous protection for today's ‘24 by forever’ data centres.

The high-end storage array features: up to 128 Intel Xeon processor cores, up to 1 TB of global memory, fibre channel/FICON/gigabit ethernet/iSCSI connectivity, latest generation Flash/fibre channel/SATA drive support, scale to 2400 drives and maximum usable, protected capacity of 2 PB.
