The VNXe3200 adds powerful features which were only available on higher end VNX models including FAST™ VP auto-tiering, FAST Cache SSD caching, Fibre Channel host connectivity, and MCx™ multicore optimization. The new multicore enhancements alongside a beefed up quad core 2.2 GHz processor delivers up to 3X the performance compared to the previous generation VNXe3150 – supporting over 200 VM’s, 2500 Exchange users, or 600 Virtual Desktops in a very small space.
The hybrid VNXe3200™ storage system retains the affordability, simplicity, and efficiency that VNXe systems are known for – including Unisphere™ awardwinning simplicity, unified connectivity, and EMC’s next generation support services - to deliver an incredible value in entry-level storage.
Hybrid For Mixed Workloads
Industry analysts report that the most economical way to deploy high speed flash drive technology is in hybrid or multitier storage arrays combining lowcost, high-capacity hard disk drives (HDDs) with a small amount of highperformance solid-state drives (SSDs) to deliver low storage cost per I/O. Hybrid arrays have the intelligence to detect hot spots and balance workloads from SSD to HDD as required.
Common use cases include:
- Applications —Microsoft Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, Oracle
- Private Cloud — VMware® ESX® or Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines
- Virtual Desktops and Home Directories
Simple. Efficient. Protected.
The VNXe3200 can be setup for NAS or SAN in minutes and is designed to integrate directly into your application and virtualization environments. It stores and protects your data while lowering your total costs in terms of $/IOPS and $/GB. The VNXe3200 was also designed for 99.999% availability utilizing dual controllers, flexible RAID options, and non-disruptive upgrades.
The VNXe3200 was designed with ease of use in mind.
- You can setup DAS or NAS or SAN in less than 15 minutes with the new VNXe Configuration Wizard. With the free add-on EMC Storage Integrator for Windows you can provision storage for Microsoft applications in minutes not hours. Unisphere Central can be used for more advanced multisite deployments of mixed VNXe and VNX’s.
- Now, you can easily deploy an automated private cloud with deep VMware and Microsoft integration. The VNX family has the best virtualization integration with over 96 integration points into both VMware and Hyper-V. For three years in a row, an independent research firm Wikibon named EMC VNX and VNXe the #1 storage for VMware integration.
- The improved, integrated service ecosystem includes EMC Secure Remote Support (ESRS) for remote monitoring and repair capabilities as well as dial home and remote chat.
The VNXe3200 also has leading edge efficiency features which lower the overall cost of the system.
- You can boost performance while lowering costs using our hybrid array powered by EMC’s FAST Suite. FAST will use SSD first and then put colder data on high capacity HDDs. FAST is automated for set it and forget it tuning.
- Reduce capacity requirements by up to 50% with thin provisioning and file dedupe. In the past, you had to make a trade-off between performance and efficiency features. Combined with the FAST suite, you can deploy thinly provisioning LUN’s and filesystems without performance degradation.
- This system does a lot in a densely packed space. With a flash optimized architecture, MCx, 48GB RAM, and support for SSD’s and HDD’s, you can store up to 200 VM’s in 4U.
The system delivers the right combination of built-in and add-on EMC software capabilities to support your recovery SLAs.
- Unified Snapshots and Remote Protection provide array-based data protection and disaster recovery.
- With AppSyncTM protect all of your critical applications in a single click, dial in the correct service level and enable application owners to drive protection.
- RecoverPoint provides local and remote Continuous Data Protection for recovery to any point in time. You can replicate with RecoverPoint to both VNXe and VNX systems with automatic sync options and choice for RPO’s.
- You can use VSPEX® proven architectures (available from partners) to purchase a holistic (server, network, storage) architecture that integrates the new VNXe3200 & Data Domain2200 backup appliance.
