EMC launches entry-level storage array to unleash flash

New VNXe3200 is three times more efficient than previous VNXe solutions

Storage vendor EMC has released a new entry-level storage array which uses flash to accelerate virtual applications and file performance.

According to a company statement, the new VNXe3200 is three times more efficient than previous VNXe solutions, and is based on the VNX Series that was launched in September 2013 .

It uses MCx (Multicore optimisation) and EMC FAST (Fully-Automated Storage Tiering) software. It also supports the major unified protocols – including fibre channel. By leveraging MCx and the FAST Suite, EMC claims the new VNXe system exceeds previous VNXe solutions in power, efficiency, and ease-of-use.

EMC senior vice president and general manager, enterprise and midrange systems division, Jeff Boudreau, said he was thrilled with the market response to the new VNX.

"Today, we’ve delivered on our ongoing commitment to our partners and customers to extend key enterprise capabilities, like FAST, MCx, and D@RE, to our entry level and mid-range platforms, enabling our customers to further stretch their IT dollar and protect their investments," he said.

"We’re especially excited about Project Liberty, which will give our customers more agility as they transition to hybrid Cloud deployments, while still enjoying the same consistent VNX user experience.”

Project Liberty is virtualised storage software that is based on the VNX Family.

EMC claims it leverages the rich data services and ease-of management that VNX provides, and offers it in flexible deployment models, whether on a virtual server or in a hybrid Cloud, to meet varied and changing workloads and service levels.

The VNXe3200 is also available in new VSPEX Proven Infrastructures, which delivers up to 125 virtual machines and 500 virtual desktops. New VSPEX solutions can store up to 2,000 Exchange mailboxes and over 20,000 SharePoint users.

VNXe3200 costs start at $12,000, and will be available in the second quarter of 2014 primarily through EMC’s global channel partners.
