    VNX Series delivers industry-leading innovation and enterprise capabilities for file, block storage in a scalable, easy-to-use solution. This next-generation storage platform combines powerful and flexible hardware with advanced efficiency, management, and protection software to meet the demanding needs of today’s enterprises. All of this is available in a choice of systems ranging from affordable entry-level solutions to high-performance, petabyte capacity configurations servicing the most demanding application requirements. VNX series designed to meet the high performance, high scalability requirements of midsize and large enterprises.

      Powerful, efficient, protect, simple
    A robust platform for consolidation of legacy block storage, file servers, and direct-attached application storage, VNX series enables organizations to dynamically grow, share, and cost-effectively manage multi-protocol file systems and multi protocol block storage access. VNX operating environment enables Microsoft Windows and Linux/UNIX clients to share files in multi-protocol environments. At the same time, it supports iSCSI, FC, and FCoE access for high-bandwidth and latency-sensitive block applications. Ideal for mixed workloads, both physical and virtual, The VNX series next-generation storage platform is powered by the latest Intel Multi-Core Xeon E5-2600 series with a 6Gb/s SAS drive back-end and delivers more firepower, greater efficiency, better protection all with ease.

      Flash optimized to boost performance
    VNX Series enabled with MCx (multi-core optimization) unleashes the power of Flash to address the high performance, low latency requirements of virtualized applications. The traditional approach to building a hybrid array entails adding flash drives to a traditional hard disk based array This approach allows for consolidation of multiple workloads and deliver low €/GB. However, since the system was not designed for flash, it limits the scalability and increases the cost. A better option is the VNX series Flash Optimized hybrid array design. By designing the system for Flash, bottlenecks are eliminated to deliver the highest performance and the lowest latency. Then, by adding FAST VP tiering and high capacity NL-SAS drives, you can drive down costs for inactive data. MCx (Multi-Core RAID, Multi-Core Cache and Multi-Core FAST Cache) distributes all VNX data services across all Cores : up to 32. This approach delivers unprecedented application performance while maintaining affordable pricing. Compared to the previous generation, the VNX series with MCx delivers: Up to 4X more file transactions, Up to 4X more Oracle and SQL OLTP transactions, Up to 4X more virtual machines, Up to 3X more bandwidth for Oracle and SQL data warehousing.

      Use storage capacity more efficiently
    When even a few Flash drives are combined with the FAST Suite an unrivaled set of software that tiers data across heterogeneous drives and boosts the most active data to cache customers receive the optimal benefits of a FLASH 1st strategy. FLASH 1st, available only through EMC, ensures customers never have to make concessions for cost or performance. Highly active data is served from up to 4.2 TB of Flash drives with FAST Cache, which dynamically absorbs unpredicted spikes in system workloads. As that data ages and becomes less active over time, FAST VP (Fully Automated Storage Tiering for Virtual Pools) automatically tiers the data from high-performance to high-capacity drives in 256 MB increments, resulting in overall lower costs regardless of application type or data age.

      Continuous availability
    VNX series is architected to provide five-nines availability in mission-critical business environments. VNX availability and redundancy features include:
    - Mirrored write cache,
    - Battery backup
    - RAID protection levels 0, 1, 1/0, 3, 5, 6
    - Proactive hot sparing
    - Redundant data paths, power supplies, drive connections, and storage processors all with non-disruptive field-replacement capabilities
    - Continuous system monitoring, call-home notification, and advanced remote diagnostics

    VNX data protection software provides the right protection for every application need:
    - Local protection is delivered with snapshots for point-in-time recovery and continuous data protection with RecoverPoint local replication
    - Remote protection is available with the same DVR-like recovery with RecoverPoint Continuous Remote Replication
    - To make application consistent replicas controlled by the application, Replication Manager and AppSync provide application protection delivered as a service.

      EMC Unisphere
    Unisphere makes it easy to manage VNX systems from anywhere with a simple, integrated user interface for distributed storage environments. The Unisphere dashboard is a single screen for at-a-glance management and reporting, enabling administrators to gain instant and actionable knowledge about what’s occurring across the entire environment. Unisphere’s single sign on automatically discovers all VNX, CLARiiON, Celerra, and RecoverPoint SE installations in the environment for seamless configuration.
