PowerMax: World's Fastest Storage Array

The PowerMax 8000 leads enterprise array performance density with five million IOPS per rack and 125,000 IOPS per U (rack unit). It also supports mixed open systems and mainframe environments. PowerMax 2000 is the entry point into next-generation enterprise storage, delivering rich data services and high availability at midmarket economics.

Extreme Efficiency

PowerMax delivers extreme efficiency with inline deduplication and compression delivering up to 5:1 data reduction (3:1 average), space efficient snaps, and thin provisioning. Its inline deduplication and compression have virtually zero impact on performance, can be used with all data services, and are turned on/off by application.

Non-Disruptive Migration

To enable users to take advantage of this platform as quickly as possible, PowerMax provides seamlesss, non-disruptive migration from VMAX arrays, and simple migration from third-party arrays.

Massive Scale and Consolidation

PowerMax is built to handle high demand, heavy transaction workloads while storing petabytes of vital data. Each PowerMax brick has one engine, one to two DAEs, and fully redundant components. The multi-dimensional scale enables millions of IOPS, petabytes of effective capacity and hundreds of front-end ports.

PowerMax enables massive consolidation with support for mixed environments: open systems applications, mainframe, IBM, i, and file storage on the same array - simplifying management and significantly lowering TCO.

Mission-Critical Availability

PowerMax delivers six-nines of availability in the most demanding, mission-critical environments. SRDF software, the gold standard in disaster recovery, offers unmatched flexibility and massive scalability to deliver remote replication over extended distances or across multiple sites. For continuous availability with zero down time, SRDF/
