IT organizations are modernizing their data centers at an accelerated rate. The newly engineered VMAX All Flash storage family that we announced today combines the trusted data services and enterprise scale of VMAX with the performance and density of high-capacity flash drives. The result is a proven platform capable of delivering new levels of scale and performance to help modernize IT more quickly and with lessrisk.

It has been an extremely exciting time for the VMAX team as we worked to get this product available for our users’ data centers.AllFlashVMAX_InfographicFINAL There has been a buzz in the air, not just because engineers like to work on cool technology and innovation, but because the entire team is jazzed and confident they have built a platform for our users that can help transform their IT infrastructures and radically improve the way they manage and support their most-critical applications.

So why VMAX All Flash? It’s because we truly believe that the combination of all- flash technology with the enterprise capabilities of VMAX is a critical success factor for the modern data center. Almost every CIO we meet who is responsible for large-scale enterprise environments has a common set of criteria for systems that support their critical applications. These include:

  • Supporting an extensive ecosystem to provide a common, standardized way of delivering storage services for a range of platform, OS, hypervisor, and application types.
  • Delivering management, automation, and simplicity at enterprise scale to abstract the underlying technology to eliminate manual administration and lower operational costs.
  • Providing massive consolidation and efficiencies with flash technology to enable predictability, scale, and control for service provider and large enterprise requirements.
  • Enable rock-solid replication and integrated backup data services to protect mission-critical apps, maintain “always on” data availability, and avoid disasters.

VMAX All Flash meets this checklist in a way that no other product in the industry can. Building on customer expectations of VMAX as the most trusted array on the planet, VMAX All Flash is a major leap forward in delivering the capabilities of the modern data center.

We are proud of the team and the innovation they have put into this platform. We are also thankful to our users who have placed their trust in VMAX to manage some of the world’s most-critical apps, a responsibility everyone on the team thinks about every day. And we are excited for the future, as we aim to deliver even more innovation and greater business value, without compromising the reasons why VMAX remains at the heart of the modern data center.
