The exciting Dell EMC VMAX all-flash arrays now includes the newest powerful member, the VMAX 950F. The VMAX 950F delivers unparalleled performance and scalability as a mission-critical multi-controller platform utilising Intel® Xeon® E5-2697-v4 18 core processors running at 2.3GHz. With the highest capacity 7.68 and 15.36TB Enterprise Flash drives, and Dual V-Brick/cabinet packaging this new Enterprise class array offers a compelling value proposition designed for the most demanding storage workloads, including new support for Mixed Mainframe and Open Systems hosts. Like all members of the All Flash family, your data always resides in the fastest possible tier (Diamond) to deliver the highest IOPS throughput and lowest possible latency.

VMAX All-Flash arrays extend the long tradition of VMAX® Reliability, Availability and Serviceability that our customers have come to expect. Ranging from 1 to 8 V-Bricks packaged in dual V-Brick racks along with their associated DAEs, the VMAX All-Flash family offers unprecedented scale and footprint efficiency. The built-in hypervisor enables VMAX All-Flash to offer Unified block and file support through Embedded NAS (eNAS), as well as Embedded Management.

VMAX All-Flash arrays are available in two software packages, the standard “F” package and the application rich “FX” package, which makes ordering easy. The FX package includes licensed support for SRDF S/A/STAR/Metro, Data at Rest Encryption, eNAS, and both include VASA Provider Certified support for VVols, and Secure Snaps, a new SnapVX feature eliminating the ability for admins to delete snapshots. And now, for the first time, VMAX All Flash arrays offer optional support for RecoverPoint for heterogeneous replication with Dell EMC arrays. As always, VMAX All Flash arrays come fully pre-configured out of the factory to significantly shorten the time to first I/O.
