EMC Extends VNX Family

Announces New Entry Level VNXe, Data-At-Rest Encryption for VNX and New VSPEX Reference Architectures

EMC has added new products and capabilities to the industry-leading VNX Family of hybrid storage solutions, including a new entry-level VNXe3200 storage array.

The new VNXe3200 is 3X more efficient than previous VNXe solutions, and is based on the VNX Series that was launched in September 2013. Powered by EMC MCx (Multicore optimization) and EMC FAST (Fully-Automated Storage Tiering) software, the new VNXe is designed to unleash the power of Flash, thereby accelerating virtual applications and file performance by 3X compared to its predecessor in the same small footprint announced the press release.

The VNXe3200, which starts at under $12K, will be available in the second quarter of 2014 primarily through EMC’s global channel partners. The VNXe3200 is supported by the EMC Business Partner Program, which offers a complete set of partner-ready collateral, Express Solution bundles, and VSPEX reference architectures for simplified ordering, selling, and support.

EMC has also launched ‘Project Liberty’, virtualized storage software that is based on the industry-leading VNX Family. Project Liberty leverages the rich data services and ease-of management that VNX provides today, and offers this in a variety of flexible deployment models, whether on a virtual server or in a hybrid cloud for example, to meet varied and changing workloads and service levels.

In addition, EMC also announced Data-At-Rest-Encryption for VNX – VNX D@RE.
Jeff Boudreau, SVP and GM, Enterprise and Midrange Systems Division, EMC Corporation, said, “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 midrange platforms – enabling our customers to further stretch their IT dollar and protect their investments. 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.”
