Introduction to VMAX3 with HYPERMAX OS

Introduction to VMAX3 with HYPERMAX OS

The EMC VMAX3 family storage arrays deliver tier-1 scale-out multi-controller architecture
with unmatched consolidation and efficiency for the enterprise. The VMAX3 family
includes three models:
l VMAX 100K – 2 – 4 controllers, 48 cores, 2TB cache, 1440 2.5″ drives, 64 ports, 1.1
PBu
l VMAX 200K – 2 – 8 controllers, 128 cores, 8TB cache, 2880 2.5″ drives, 128 ports, 2.3
PBu
l VMAX 400K – 2 – 16 controllers, 384 cores, 16TB cache, 5760 2.5″ drives, 256 ports,
4.3 PBu
VMAX3 arrays provide unprecedented performance and scale, and a radically new
architecture for enterprise storage that separates software data services from the
underlying platform. The combination of VMAX3 hardware and software provides:
l Open system and mainframe connectivity
l Dramatic increase in floor tile density by consolidating high capacity disk enclosures
for both 2.5″ and 3.5″ drives and engines in the same system bay
l Support for either hybrid or all flash configurations
l Unified block and file support through Embedded NAS (eNAS), eliminating the
physical hardware
l Data at Rest Encryption for those applications that demand the highest level of
security
l Service Level (SL) provisioning with FAST.X for external arrays (XtremIO, Cloud Array,
and other supported 3rd party storage)
l FICON, iSCSI, Fibre Channel, and FCoE front end protocols
l Simplified management at scale through Service Levels, reducing time to provision by
up to 95% to less than 30 seconds
l Extended enterprise platform for mixed workloads with optional XtremIO X-Brick high
performance data reduction tier
l Extended tiering to the cloud with EMC CloudArray integration for extreme scalability
and up to 40% lower storage costs
HYPERMAX OS is an industry-leading open storage and hypervisor converged operating
system. HYPERMAX OS combines industry-leading high availability, I/O management,
quality of service, data integrity validation, storage tiering, and data security with an
open application platform.
HYPERMAX OS features the first real-time, non-disruptive storage hypervisor that
manages and protects embedded services by extending VMAX3 high availability to
services that traditionally would have run external to the array. It also provides direct
access to hardware resources to maximize performance.
