United Kingdom : New EMC VMAX3 Industry s First Enterprise Data Service Platform

July 9, 2014

EMC Corporation today announced the highly anticipated VMAX3 TM Family, which transforms VMAX from enterprise storage to an enterprise data service platform. This fundamentally changes what has until now been possible with enterprise storage by bringing new levels of cloud-like agility, efficiency and control within the data center.

Historically, IT delivered data services to internal clients while maintaining full control of the data center. IT was the trusted sole provider, but constrained by a lack of agility in rolling out new applications efficiently. The advent of public cloud services allowed business owners to bypass IT and quickly procure the applications they needed. This self-service approach delivered new levels of agility; however, it added risk by placing the company s data was outside of IT s trusted control.

To help IT organizations regain control, a new and far-more agile data center infrastructure is required. The VMAX3 enterprise data service platform enables customers to regain control of where best to run specific workloads, within the data center or in the public cloud. VMAX3 introduces this innovation to help customers manage their Storage-as-a-Service through predictable service levels at hybrid cloud scale.

Technology Highlights

The rearchitecture of VMAX3 is based upon the new HYPERMAX OS and Dynamic Virtual Matrix architecture. HYPERMAX OS is the industry s first open converged storage hypervisor and operating system. It enables VMAX3 to embed storage infrastructure services like cloud access, data mobility and data protection directly on the array. This delivers new levels of data center efficiency and consolidation by reducing footprint and energy requirements. In addition, HYPERMAX OS delivers the ability to perform real-time and non-disruptive data services. The Dynamic Virtual Matrix architecture enables customers to dynamically allocate processing power for improved performance and to ensure predictable service levels at scale.

VMAX3 combines the control and trust of the traditional data center with the flexibility, economics and scale of the cloud, delivering customers a more powerful, trusted and agile system.

More Powerful The new VMAX3 hybrid systems including the 100K, 200K and 400K are purpose-built to support the hybrid cloud by dynamically allocating up to 384 processing cores on-demand to meet the performance requirements of dynamic mixed workloads. VMAX3 enables customers to hyper-consolidate enterprise applications. The new systems are designed so that customers can start small from 100 s of virtual machines and grow to tens of thousands of virtual machines, all while delivering predictable service levels.
