Finally EMC announced the new VNXe 3200 last week and the box was demonstrated at EMC World 2014 this week.
I just want to summarize the main features for you:
- Storage processor specs: 2U, 8 Sandybridge cores, 48GB of system memory, 8 10GbE ports, up to 4 8Gbps FC ports
- The well-known and awesome FAST technology from the VNX series (FAST VP + FAST Cache) are available in the VNXe 3200!!!
- No longer iSCSI only – now it´s FC, iSCSI, FCoE, NAS protocols …
- Starts at under $12K … so awesome technology in a small box for a small price!
VNX vs VNXe architecture:
As you can clearly see the “unified control path” from its predecessor is continued in the VNXe3200.
