Dell EMC has announced at the Dell EMC World 2017 in Las Vegas, major updates across its market-leading storage portfolio designed to provide IT departments with the technology they need to modernize their data center and begin their journey to transform IT.

 

Dell EMC has announced major platform refreshes to its flagship enterprise storage platform, VMAX, as well as the next generation XtremIO purpose-built All-Flash array. Dell EMC also announced the next generation of its Unity and the SC5020 hybrid array, as well as Isilon scale-out NAS arrays.

 

“With these new offerings in high-end, midrange and unstructured data storage, Dell EMC is bringing best-in-class performance, value and economics to customers’ IT organizations,” said Niladri Saha, General Manager – Modern Infrastructure Sales, Dell EMC India. “The speeds and feeds are impressive, but more importantly, customers of every size, every budget and every stage of IT Transformation can harness the power of enterprise-class storage to move their business forward.”

 

VMAX 950F is the member of Dell EMC’s VMAX All Flash family that has set the industry benchmark for enterprise storage arrays for decades. With performance that is 68% faster and offering 30% better response times (6.7M IOPS for RRH, 350 microseconds response times for OLTP) than the previous generation VMAX 950F resets the bar for All-Flash storage performance. In fact, the VMAX 950F is up to 4x faster than its nearest competitor in testing of real-world workloads.

 

The VMAX 950F All Flash array offers all the industry-leading data services of the rest of the VMAX All Flash family – including SRDF (Symmetrix Remote Data Facility), D@RE (Data At-Rest Encryption), non-disruptive migration, inline compression and more.

 

XtremIO delivers unprecedented levels of efficiency to thousands of customers worldwide. With XtremIO X2, Dell EMC has amplified the strengths of the previous generation by enhancing XtremIO’s elegant software design and adding more horsepower to the hardware. XtremIO is the ideal platform for workloads that benefit from deduplication and integrated copy data management (iCDM) for large-scale snapshots, such as VDI and development/test use-cases.

 

Dell EMC has engineered X2 to be even more efficient in storage capacity and All-Flash performance, at a price as low as one-third of its predecessor. X2 provides 3x the capacity per X-Brick as well as new multi-dimensional scalability to scale up from as low as 7TB to as high as 138TB per X-Brick, scaling out up to eight X-Bricks. Finally, X2 provides up to a total of 5.5PB effective capacity and a capacity density of over 100TB effective per rack unit.

 

Dell EMC introduced four Dell EMC Unity All-Flash models – Dell EMC Unity 350F, 450F, 550F and 650F – providing up to 500TB of effective storage capacity in a highly dense 80-drive, 3U footprint. All new Dell EMC Unity models include 4x larger file system with inline file compression, iCDM with snapshot mobility, simpler mapped RAID protection and support for external encryption key management via KMIP (Key Management Interoperability Protocol). Additionally, Dell EMC Unity features an 8x increase in density and 8x more effective file system capacity than its predecessor, as well as the ability to install in under 10 minutes, 33% faster than previous generations.

 

Dell EMC also introduced SC5020 to its family of economical and intelligent entry- to midrange-level hybrid storage solutions for block workloads. The successor to the popular SC4020 array, the SC5020 offers more power and scale, with up to 45% more IOPS, 2x max capacity (2PB) and 3x the bandwidth in a new 3U format featuring 30 internal drive bays, dual controllers, plus FC, iSCSI and direct-attach SAS connectivity. The SC5020 boasts one of the lowest hybrid storage entry costs in the industry, thanks to the automated efficiency of built-in data progression, intelligent deduplication and compression.

 

Dell EMC is introducing a new generation of Isilon scale-out NAS systems based on a revolutionary “Infinity” architecture. The generation of Isilon systems will include All-Flash, hybrid and archive configurations that are designed for demanding file applications across a wide range of industries, including media and entertainment, life sciences, and financial services.

 

The unique “Infinity” architecture brings new levels of performance and scalability to the Isilon platform, delivering up to 6x the IOPS, 11x the throughput, and 2x the capacity of the current generation Isilon platform. It also enables Isilon to provide 9x the IOPs, 18x the throughput and 21x the capacity of the closest competitor.As with all Isilon platforms, the new generation of Isilon systems is powered by the Isilon OneFS operating system, which delivers high storage efficiency, robust data protection and strong data management capabilities. This new generation of Isilon systems can seamlessly integrate with existing Isilon clusters, or can be deployed as a new cluster.

 

Dell EMC Services now offers Intelligent Data Mobility (IDM) 2.0 and vendor-agnostic methodology to data migration that enables customers to achieve faster time-to-value at lower cost with minimal disruption to applications and data. Based on the customer’s specific business and technical requirements, Dell EMC will tailor the engagement using standardized blueprints. IDM is available in three packages that align to a wide range of customer needs, whether it’s a technology refresh or data migration.
