By leveraging MCx and the FAST Suite, the new VNXe system exceeds previous VNXe solutions in power, efficiency, and ease-of-use. The VNXe technology highlights include:
* Turbocharging mixed workloads by supporting three times more virtual machines, three times more virtual desktops, three times more Microsoft SQL transactions and three times more Exchange mailboxes. * Simplified management with the ability to setup NAS or SAN in under 15 minutes with EMC Unisphere. Users can also manage and deploy
The VNXe3200 is also available in new VSPEX Proven Infrastructures, which delivers up to 125 virtual machines and 500 virtual desktops in a VNXe3200. These new VSPEX solutions can store up to 2 000 Exchange mailboxes and over 20 000 SharePoint users.

EMC unveils 'project liberty'
Today EMC also announced 'Project Liberty', virtualised storage software that is based on the industry-leading VNX Family. Project Liberty leverages the rich data services and ease-of-management that VNX provides today, and offers this in a variety of flexible deployment models, whether on a virtual server or in a hybrid cloud for example, to meet varied and changing workloads and service levels.
To address increasingly shorter development cycles, IT must deliver a way to enable rapid application prototyping for quicker time to market. One use case for Project Liberty will be to empower IT to spin up several virtual array instances quickly, at a moment's notice, to speed development of new applications such as test and development. Project Liberty will enable these new applications to be seamlessly deployed on physical VNX storage systems with higher service levels – all while enjoying a consistent management and rich user experience.
These applications could reside anywhere – whether it's remote office, central office or in a cloud. With Project Liberty, customers will benefit from the agility and efficiency of a hybrid cloud.
Redefining security in the midrange
In addition, today EMC also announced Data-At-Rest-Encryption for VNX – VNX D@RE. Since the introduction of the new VNX, customers are now consolidating more and more critical data on a single VNX, making security a higher priority. This is particularly true in industries such as healthcare, financial services and federal and state governments that require more control over sensitive information from increased unauthorised data access. VNX Data-At-Rest-Encryption (D@RE), is expected to be available on the new VNX Series as a non-disruptive software upgrade in the third quarter of 2014. It is designed to help customers protect data written to disk to eliminate data access from unauthorised drive removal, VNX D@RE uses controller-based encryption, which provides the flexibility to support any drive type, speed and capacity.
"The VNXe allows us to leverage industry-leading technology at an affordable price point. The VNXe3200 has improved our efficiency while improving our performance, allowing us to meet internal service level agreements. With the VNXe, we can easily scale our infrastructure as our business grows, or offer new services that our company can provide," Brandon Robinson, Executive Director of Network Services,
