EMC said VMAX3, a new architecture for enterprise storage, simplifies management at scale through service level objectives, reducing time to provision by up to 95 percent to less than 30 seconds.
VMAX3, a data service platform, extends tiering to the cloud with EMC CloudArray integration for extreme scalability and up to 40 percent lower storage costs.
“VMAX3 solution can change the way that businesses build their data centers. Separating software data services from the underlying hardware allows organizations to take advantage of fundamentally different ways of delivering enterprise storage architectures,” said Guy Churchward, president, Core Technologies, EMC Corporation.
EMC is extending enterprise data services to multiple platforms with the launch of FAST.X, automating storage tiering across the data center.
VMAX3 data service platform architecture allows customers to now choose the optimal platform for each workload while consistently protecting and managing them based on their service levels, using industry-leading VMAX capabilities.
EMC is also previewing an option to purchase a VMAX3 platform with integrated XtremIO X-Brick building blocks for easier deployment and management of low latency, compressed data tiers.
EMC will be offering FAST.X for VMAX3 with support for XtremIO this quarter. SRDF/Metro and FAST.X support for CloudArray and third-party storage is planned for release later this year.
“Coupled with data growth, the ability to automatically tier data across multiple platforms frees time and provides us the ability to respond rapidly to the business as they take advantage of market trends and implement more pieces of their omni-channel strategy,” said Tony Harte, director of Infrastructure and Business Solutions, Lids Sports Group.
