EMC VMAX 40K

The EMC VMAX 40K brings unequaled performance and scale to the hybrid cloud, software-defined data center (SDDC), and hyper-consolidation. Get up to three times the performance and twice the usable capacity of other Tier 1 storage arrays. Deliver the highest service levels for mission-critical open systems and mainframe applications.

Deploy EMC VMAX with FAST VP — automated storage tiering keeps performance and cost of ownership at their best. Ensure predictable performance with Host I/O Limits that control IOPS and bandwidth use. And simplify IT operations using Federated Tiered Storage (FTS) to consolidate EMC and other storage behind VMAX.

Protect your data with Data at Rest Encryption, secure audit, and secure access. VMAX consolidated storage also prevents planned and unplanned downtime. You’ll raise business continuity to 99.9999 percent by using VMAX together with SRDF/S.

Key Features

  • Ensure high service levels with scale-out storage and automated tiering
  • Expand up to 4 PB max usable capacity
  • Mix drives ranging from ultra-fast Enterprise Flash to high capacity 3 TB SAS
  • Virtualize with VMware and Hyper-V integration
  • Maximize performance, efficiency, protection: software bundles offer FAST VP, SRDF, and more
  • Add EMC XtremSW Cache to accelerate application performance
  • Provision and manage easily with EMC Unisphere for VMAX
