EMC VNX Unified Storage Platforms

EMC VNX series unified storage systems deliver uncompromising scalability and flexibility for the mid-tier while providing market leading simplicity and efficiency to minimize total cost of ownership (TCO).


The EMC VNX is based on the powerful, new Intel Xeon-5600 processor family and implements a modular architecture that integrates hardware components for block, file, and object with concurrent support for native NAS, iSCSI, Fibre Channel, and FCoE protocols.

The VNX series delivers file (NAS) functionality via two-to-eight X-blade data movers and block (iSCSI, FCoE, and FC) storage via dual storage processors leveraging full 6 Gb SAS disk drive topology. You can also start with block or file functionality and easily upgrade to unified when needed. The unified configuration includes the following rack mounted enclosures:

  • Disk processor enclosure (holds disk drives) or storage processor enclosure (requires disk drive tray) plus standby power system to deliver block protocols
  • One or more data mover enclosures to deliver file protocols (required for file and unified configurations)
  • Control station (required for file and unified configurations)

VNX Key Points:

  • Optimize SLA's for both the loswest cost and the highest application performance automatically
  • Secure data where it is created and enforce retention at the file level for compliance
  • Recover and repurpose applications locally and remotely
  • Protect any host or any application from disaster
  • Manage Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint, and Oracle application copies and prove more compliance with protection policies
  • Manage VNX software via Unisphere

The VNXe3150 is an ideal platform for businesses with physical server infrastructures, as well as those making the move to server virtualization to drive consolidation and greater efficiency.

The VNXe3300 includes all of the ease of use and application driven management features of the VNXe3150, along with increased performance, scalability and I/O expandability. Both systems share a comprehensive set of features including exceptional capacity utilization, data protection and availabiiltysolutions, and advanced support capabilitys.


EMC VNXe systems take a fundamentally different approach, aligning storage management with applications, avoiding arcane storage terms for plain language, and embedding storage and application best practices into the user interface for a faster, simpler user experience in completing everday administrative tasks.

Whether the task at hand is consolidationg storage to better manage resources and protect data, or improving IT resource utilization with server virtualization, the VNXe series provides the ready answer. VNXe systems are uniquely capable of delivering unified IP storage for NAS and iSCSI while simplifying operations and reducing management overhead. Application centric management and provisioning wizards result in immediate familiarity for users, while integration of snapshot and replication with storage management workflow results in streamlined operations and uniform data protection coverage.

EMC Storage Success

Methods to Increase Success using EMC Storage Platforms

 

EMC Storage is a valuable component to any storage infrastructure. However, this platform is not accessible to every storage environment based on budgetary constraints, or it is believed that scalability within the CLARiiON EMC platform will be a burden on storage budgets. This is a myth and we will delineate the myth from reality in how you can easily and feasibly implement and scale EMC VNX storage platforms within your storage environment.

 

1) EMC VNX systems come in many shapes and sizes; determine which best suits your needs and understand the compatibility of that system between DAE's and HDD's

 

2) EMC Storage systems scale very easily and to a great data size; understand how much data you need and how this data needs to be accessed. Use this information to determine the drive type most relevant to your data. In many scenarios, you do not need FC or iSCSI; SATA drives work very well in many applications.

 

3) Performance vs. Practicality in EMC Storage systems: Sata vs 10K vs 15K and even taking Solid State Drives into consideration. Which is best for you and which presents the best cost/benefit ratio? This evaluation must be done by your team as well as the vendor you decide to work with. In no way is this a cookie cutter analysis or solution, so don't approach it in that mentality.

 

4) Feasible Scalability in EMC VNX: Hindsight is 20/20, but foresight is priceless. Look into the future, analyzing data trends and predicting growth patterns are sure fire techniques to prevent chasing your data growth curve. Staying ahead of data growth provides the ability to control growth, predict when and how upgrades are implemented, and, most importantly, allows the needed time to properly implement the correct upgrade for each scenario.

 

5) Getting the Most out of your EMC Storage:

  • More Spindles = Higher Performance: Instead of a DAE populated with 300GB 15K drives, consider 4 DAE's populated with 76GB 15K drives. This provides less weight on each drive and more spindles across the system, allowing a higher access rate and speed.
  • Always explore the Used/Refurbished EMC Storage route: Used and Refurbished EMC storage options can save up to 70-90% off of EMC list price in many situations. Pursuing this route will open many opportunities for your company to rapidly and efficiently expand within your Storage Environment. Upgrades, DR Systems, Test/Dev environments, QA systems are all much more feasible when taking Used EMC Storage Solutions into consideration.
  • Find the best RAID configuration for you: RAID has a major impact on raw vs. usable data size. Take this into consideration when implementing a RAID policy across your storage systems.
