Dell Technologies has released new Dell EMC PowerMax features and enhancements to push the Boundaries of High-End Storage for Indian Businesses.
Dell Technologies and VMware have combined forces to add mission-critical availability and the highest scalability to VMware Virtual Volumes (vVols). This will provide customers with an enterprise-grade platform for running virtual volumes at scale with the utmost protection. This upgrade will aid the customers, who want to modernize their infrastructure and move from a hardware-centric storage approach to an application-centric approach for managing storage with VMware vVols. Additionally, customers will now be able to deploy VMware Site Recovery Manager with PowerMax SRDF/A replication to simplify their VMware management.
The new Cloud Mobility for Dell EMC PowerMax, will offer the seamless and transparent movement of data from on-premises to cloud, enabling PowerMax customers to leverage lower-cost object storage in the cloud for agile and economic benefits, reducing the cost per GB for long-term data retention by up to 50%.
To provide unparalleled data resiliency combined with increased efficiency, the latest PowerMax innovation now extended its SRDF/Metro active/active replication by adding Smart DR (disaster recovery). The Smart DR function copies data from both primary arrays to one remote array to maintain data resiliency (DR operations) even if one primary array becomes unavailable.
New PowerMax security features deliver on the goal of safeguarding mission-critical customer data from unwanted intrusion or cyber-attacks. PowerMax end-to-end efficient encryption will enable customers to secure storage assets by encrypting data from the host to the storage media on PowerMax. These latest security enhancements, when combined with existing security features like secure snapshots, tamper-proof audit logs, etc., will deliver full-proof assurance to customers regarding the safety of their mission-critical data.
The new upgrades coupled with the existing capabilities of Dell EMC PowerMax will enable the customers in simplifying their mission-critical workloads and prepare them for the IT challenges of today and tomorrow, enabling them to stay one step ahead of the competitive curve.
