Storage layer The VxBlock System 1000 offers several storage arrays, which are detailed in this section. Child TopicsVMAX All-Flash storage overview VMAX All-Flash arrays provide high flash density with high capacity flash drives. PowerMax storage overviewPowerMax storage arrays provide nonvolatile memory express (NVMe) storage. Dell EMC Unity storage overviewDell EMC Unity storage arrays include transactional workloads, databases, virtualized servers, and multiple workload consolidations. Dell EMC Unity supports block and file environments with the flexibility to configure a system, capacity points, and Integrated Data Protection options, and are optimized for VMware virtualized applications. Dell EMC Unity XT storage overviewDell EMC Unity XT storage arrays provide an integrated architecture for block, file, and vVols with concurrent support for native NAS, iSCSI, and FC. Dell EMC Unity XT Unified Storage arrays provide dual storage processors and operate a multicore operating environment. PowerStore T model storage overviewPowerStore T models optimize the use of fast NVMe media, including flash and high endurance non-volatile media, combined with share-based QOS, and workload analytics to automate the balance of memory and storage resources to meet the performance demands of each application. Isilon and PowerScale storage overviewThe PowerScale family includes PowerScale and Isilon storage arrays. The scale-out NAS storage solution delivers increased performance for file-based data applications and workflows from a single file-system architecture. The PowerScale all-flash storage arrays can exist in the same cluster with Isilon Gen 6 nodes to drive your traditional and modern applications. PowerScale storage arrays cannot exist in the same cluster with Isilon Gen 5 nodes. XtremIO storage overviewThe XtremIO Storage Array is an all-flash system based on a scale-out architecture. The system uses building blocks called X-Brick building blocks which are clustered together using an InfiniBand backbone Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) network. The system operation is managed using a stand-alone dedicated Linux-based server, called the XtremIO Management Server (XMS). Multiple storage array overview The VxBlock System 1000 offers multiple storage arrays natively without the addition of a Converged Technology Extension.
