EMC AnnouncementEMC VNX Series

VNXe 3200 announced and shown at EMC World 2014

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!

As you can clearly see the “unified control path” from its predecessor is continued in the VNXe3200.
