Dell EMC adds dual-port Optane and automation to PowerMax

By

Dell EMC's inclusion of dual port Intel Optane SSDs and Storage Class Memory (SCM) as persistent storage in PowerMax servers is an industry first, according to the company.

Dual port Intel Optane SSDs were co-developed by Dell and Intel as part of their decades-long partnership.

PowerMax servers configured with dual port Optane SSDs will be available from 16 September 2019.

In addition, NVMe-oF is now available for all Dell EMC PowerMax arrays for high performance and low latency.

This involves PowerMax 32Gb FC I/O modules, 32Gb Connectrix switches, directors and 32Gb NVMe host adapters with Dell EMC PowerPath multipathing software.

According to internal testing, these configurations can deliver up to 15M IOPS, 350GBbps bandwidth, 50% better response times, and sub-100 microsecond read response times.

PowerPath is the first enterprise-class SAN multipathing software with full support for NVMe-oF, Dell officials said.

PowerMax uses machine learning, predictive analytics and pattern recognition to automatically place data on the correct media type.

Other new features simplify the automation of infrastructure operations and DevOps workflows.

These are the VMware vRealize Orchestrator (vRO) plug-in, pre-built Ansible modules (available on GitHub), and the Container Storage Interface (CSI) plug-in for Kubernetes on PowerMax.

For organisations following a multi-cloud strategy, there are Dell Technologies Cloud Validated Designs for Dell EMC PowerMax, VMware Cloud Foundation validated PowerMax and Unity XT arrays, and Dell EMC Cloud Storage Services for disaster recovery across AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure.
