The VNXe3150’s architecture and storage-management software do not compromise on supporting the SMB’s key storage needs, such as performance-driven user response time and high availability (in terms of at most minutes per year of unplanned downtime), nor on what IT has to provide to the enterprise, such as local data protection (snapshots), remote data protection for disaster recovery (replication tools), application protection (consistent replication), and security and compliance.
The VNXe3150 is the newest member of the VNXe series. As a form of shared storage called unified storage, the VNXe3150 works with both block storage (often used for database-related applications, including online transaction processing and businessintelligence solutions) and file-based storage (such as file sharing).Unified shared storage has become very popular,as it enables the use of one storage strategy for all needs from the sublime — say, Microsoft Exchange —to the prosaic — say, print servers.
VNXE STORAGE PLATFORMS
With scalability from six up to 150 disk drives and 450 terabytes of capacity, theVNXe series is ready to meet the needs of growing organizations withincreasingly complex storage requirements. The VNXe3150™ is an ideal platformfor businesses with physical server infrastructures, as well as those making the move to server virtualization to drive consolidation and greater efficiency. The VNXe3300™ includes all of the ease of use and application-driven management features of the VNXe3150, along with increased performance, scalability, and I/O expandability. Both systems share a comprehensive set of features including exceptional capacity utilization, data protection and availability solutions, and advanced support capabilities.
STORAGE CONSOLIDATION ON YOUR TERMS
Deploying a highly functional shared storage system should be an on-ramp toefficiency for your IT infrastructure, not a roadblock to greater productivity. Too often, however, the increased capabilities of advanced network storage come at the price of new interfaces to master, new terminology to decipher, and new processes to learn. VNXe systems take a fundamentally different approach,aligning storage management with applications, avoiding arcane storage terms for plain language, and embedding storage and application best practices into the user interface for a faster, simpler user experience in completing everyday administrative tasks.
SIMPLICITY AND EFFICIENCY, UNIFIED
Whether the task at hand is consolidating storage to better manage resources and protect data, or improving IT resource utilization with server virtualization, the VNXe series provides the ready answer. VNXe systems are uniquely capable of delivering unified IP storage for NAS and iSCSI while simplifying operations and reducing management overhead. Application-centric management andprovisioning wizards result in immediate familiarity for users, while integration of snapshot and replication with storage management workflows results in streamlined operations and uniform data protection coverage.
