EMC Symmetrix VMAX 20K
Enterprise-critical applications—those which drive the core of an organization—require the highest availability infrastructure to support the most stringent service levels. This need is met with a high performing, functionally capable, and competitively priced high-end networked storage system—the EMC® Symmetrix® VMAX® 20K with the Enginuity operating environment. The Symmetrix VMAX 20K system introduces a revolutionary scale-out architecture created to match the future storage growth demands of virtual IT environments, while reducing costs for customers.
The revolutionary Virtual Matrix Architecture provides the foundation to scale to hundreds of petabytes of capacity, supporting thousands of servers, and millions of IOPS delivered to that capacity, all flexibly deployed throughout a data center and able to be controlled through a single screen.
 
  • Multi-controller, scale-out architecture
  • Up to 2,400 drives; up to 1 TB memory
  • FC 4 or 8 Gb/s, iSCSI 1 or 10 Gb/s, FICON 4 or 8 Gb/s and FCoE 10 Gb/s connectivity
  • Fully Automated Tiered Storage for Virtual Pools (FAST VP)
  • Powerful software capabilities for upmost efficiency
  • Industry leading local and remote replication
