EMC Symmetrix VMAX Overview

DMX-4 950

The EMC DMX-4 950 delivers scalable capacity and performance to consolidate systems, applications, and/or hosts while maintaining high service levels. It can be configured with as few as 32 4Gb/s high-performance Fibre Channel disk drives or up to 120 disk drives in a single cabinet. The DMX-4 950's incrementally expandable packaging facilitates the online addition of an additional independent storage bay containing an additional 240 drives for a total system capacity of 360 disk drives, providing a maximum raw capacity of over 360TB.

 

Seamless Scalability up to 1PB

Choose the capacity and performance that fits your needs, from 96 to 2,400 drives.

Information Centric Security

Get advanced RSA security technology (built in, not bolted on) to keep your data safe, reduce risk, and improve compliance.

Disk Drive Options for Tiered Storage

Select from Flash drives for ultra-high performance, Fibre Channel for high performance, or SATA-II drives for backup to disk.

Data Mobility

Keep your information highly mobile by copying and moving data quickly and easily between storage tiers, platforms, and sites.

System Management

Rely on Symmetrix Management Console, an intuitive, browser based interface, for replication, monitoring, and more.

Symmetrix DMX-4 provides customized Flash drives that break the performance barriers of traditional disk technology because they are optimized to meet high-end storage requirements. DMX-4 also delivers built-in RSA security technology to keep your critical data safe, as well as high availability to ensure constant data access. Best of all, the DMX-4 is energy efficient and easy to manage.

 

Consolidate massive amounts of data and host applications and storage tiers on reliable, cost-effective networked storage. Get 4 Gb/s performance, advanced security, and energy efficiency in an easy-to-operate storage system.
