EMC Unveils All-Flash Storage System
By apacciooutlook | Monday, December 03, 2018
EMC commits to all-flash for its primary storage offerings, relegating traditional disk to bulk and archive storage requirements. EMC also extends its all-flash portfolio to address all enterprise data center use cases, storing data at less cost than traditional enterprise disk-based arrays.
Adding to its XtremIO all-flash array, EMC has unveiled the VMAX All Flash enterprise data services platform and EMC DSSD D5 Rack-Scale Flash solution. EMC’s all-flash portfolio can be used by virtually any enterprise’s data centers.
XtremIO all-flash arrays can be used for accelerating and consolidating mixed blocks storage workloads such as databases, analytics, server virtual machines, and virtual desktop infrastructures that require consistent and predictable performance with sub-millisecond latencies. XtremIO is designed to address most high-end enterprise workloads with some of the industry’s best inline data compression and de-duplication
VMAX All Flash
VMAX All Flash for consolidating mixed block and file workloads that require up to “six-nines” of enterprise availability, rich data services, IBM mainframe, and iSeries support, and scalable storage growth. VMAX All Flash offers the gold standard of replication, recovery, data services and quality of service, re-engineered with all flash to deliver up to four petabytes (PB) of storage capacity.
EMC is extending its Xpect More Program to offer simplified planning, deployment, and management for the new VMAX All Flash array. The Xpect More Program offers the combination of a lifetime flat-price maintenance model and lifetime flash endurance protection.
DSSD D5 Rack-Scale Flash – a new flash storage category for the most performance-intensive, traditional and next-generation use cases that require microsecond latencies such as real-time analytics for Hadoop and Oracle.
VNX Series arrays provide EMC’s simplest all-flash offering. The all-flash VNXe supports file and block workloads for midrange enterprises and departmental workloads.
EMC’s Converged Platforms division, VCE will deliver new Converged Infrastructure offerings based on the above all-flash building blocks.
“Today’s enterprise customer wants to enable their business with modern data centers that deliver agility, efficiency and speed. We’re expanding upon EMC’s primary storage strengths and all-flash leadership, built with XtremIO. With the introduction of VMAX All Flash and DSSD D5 there is virtually no data center use case we’re unable to address from traditional high-end enterprise workloads, to use cases that people haven’t even dreamt about in the data center of tomorrow,” says Jeremy Burton, President of Products and Marketing, EMC Corporation.
