This year at Dell Technologies World, Dell EMC changed the game in storage with the introduction of PowerMax. This end-to-end NVMe array transforms IT infrastructure for the most critical and demanding applications of today and tomorrow. PowerMax is unmatched in the industry offering a unique combination of powerful architecture, simple operation, and trusted innovation.
For starters, PowerMax has NVMe done right – It is end-to-end, ready for NVMeoF and SCM and is built with cutting edge, industry standard technology. With a multi-controller architecture, PowerMax can scale up and out providing flexibility to expand capacity and performance on demand. It is fully active/active and component level fault isolation ensures applications keep running without compromise. Plus, the inline, global deduplication and compression offer extreme efficiency, even at scale.
The real-time machine learning engine built into PowerMaxOS leverages predictive analytics to optimize performance with no overhead. Additionally, PowerMax achieves the highest levels of resiliency and meets the strictest security standards – no matter what – with the gold standard in replication technology, over 6 9’s availability and data at rest encryption.
And at Dell EMC we are constantly driving innovation in our products, so we are excited to share some recent enhancements to the PowerMax family. Simple operation is core to PowerMax. Businesses are able to truly consolidate everything – block, file, mainframe, IBM i and next gen applications that leverage real-time analytics – all on a single PowerMax array. And now with CloudIQ for PowerMax, storage admins can proactively monitor, analyze and troubleshoot everything from anywhere – including any browser or mobile device. CloudIQ is like a fitness tracker for your storage. It is a cloud-based application, powered by machine learning to provide a single, simple display for tracking storage health, reporting on historical trends and planning for future growth. Businesses can leverage cloud capabilities and consumption of PowerMax thanks to the addition of two new pillars to the Future Proof Loyalty program: Cloud-Enabled and Cloud Consumption.
PowerMax is also now available as part of a VxBlock System 1000. For a converged solution, VxBlock 1000 is a new generation of converged infrastructure, with support for mixed technologies all in one full integrated system, including PowerMax 2000 and PowerMax 8000.
The addition of CloudIQ and VxBlock 1000 support and expansion of the Future Proof Loyalty Program further enrich PowerMax’s many differentiated features such as end-to-end NVMe, leading performance and advanced data services.
Customers trust PowerMax as the platform to transform IT and modernize their data center. As Rob Koper, Senior Storage Consultant at Open Line B.V. explains “PowerMax is future-proof. With these arrays, we’ll be able to take advantage of NVMe and next-generation SCM drives, so we are set for years to come.”
All of these updates are available today and Dell EMC PowerMax arrays start at under $150K with CloudIQ included at no additional cost.
