Dell EMC VMAX Hypermax OS And High Speed Bandwidth

Dell EMC VMAX arrays introduce the industry’s first open storage and hypervisor converged operating system, HYPERMAX OS. It combines industry leading high availability, I/O management, quality of service, data integrity validation, storage tiering, and data security with an open application platform. HYPERMAX OS features the first real-time, non disruptive storage hypervisor that manages and protects embedded services by extending Dell EMC VMAX high availability to services. It also provides direct access to hardware resources. From Dell EMC the VMAX 400K is the new SPC-2 world record winner delivering 55GB per second of extreme bandwidth the Dell EMC VMAX combines the powerful Intel multi core processors and the new Dynamic Virtual Matrix scale out architecture for dramatic performance gains to meet the intense demands of hybrid clouds. Configured with the maximum eight Dell EMC VMAX engines, ultra fast flash drives, and FlashBoost, the VMAX3 can achieve up to 3x the performance of previous generations.

Dell EMC ProtectPoint

ProtectPoint provides faster, more efficient backups while eliminating backup impact on application servers. By integrating Dell EMC VMAX with Data Domain storage, ProtectPoint reduces cost and complexity by eliminating traditional backup applications while still providing the benefits of native backups. Key customer benefits include. Achieve faster, more frequent backups to meet stringent SLOs. Instantly access application backups from Data Domain for simple recovery. Virtually eliminate backup impact on application servers. Eliminate the need for a dedicated backup server. Virtually eliminate backup impact on database servers. Dell EMC VMAX delivers unmatched ease of provisioning for your specific service level objectives. An intuitive management interface that allows IT managers to greatly reduce the time required to provision, manage, and monitor VMAX storage assets. The Dell EMC VMAX is incredibly well suited to solve the CIO challenge of embracing a modernized flash centric data center and hybrid cloud.

VMWare Virtual Volumes

Not all VVols storage support is created equal. While VMware Virtual Volumes simplify management and provide per VM storage control, the revolutionary Dell EMC VMAX takes VVols integration to a whole new level. Not only was VMAX designed to support the scale of VVols — up to 64,000 virtual volumes today and many more in the future — but the VMAX service level objective management paradigm that has radically simplified storage management realizes the full value of VVols storage polices. By matching policies to Service Level Objective, VMAX provides the highest levels of availability, data protection and performance directly to the VM. VMAX all flash storage leverages the industry’s first open storage and hypervisor converged operating system, HYPERMAX OS. It combines industry leading high availability, I/O management, quality of service, data integrity validation, storage tiering, and data security with an open application platform.
