EMC, one of the largest multinational corporations in the United States, was established in 1979 and has a history of activities in the areas of information security, information analysis, virtualization, cloud computing, etc. with more than 500 affiliated companies and 60,000 employees and experts is known as the largest storage company in the world.
The company presented its first product in the presentation of memory capacity of 64 kilobytes and the first storage in the 1980s. The Symmetrix product offering by EMC in 1990 was the main factor behind the company’s growth in the information industry. The Clarion product, launched in 1992 for the first time, was actually the first storage model to enter the information market based on the storage of Raid-based information. This product, along with other high-availability market-leading storage products, was provided to specialized data center users till 2011. In 2011, with a new series of VNX storage products, which in fact combines the model Clarion and Celera has been able to account for a large share of the storage market.
The VNX product has stopped producing old storage products such as Clarion and Celera. The variety of products at EMC is so great that users can select products at any level and size, and the equipment with the powerful software tools is an amazingly enhancement along with the equipment.
EMC VNX Series:
The EMC VNX Storage System is a medium and large-scale scalable storage system optimized for virtual and cloud computing. The VNX series is the right choice for a reasonable price, high performance and adequate storage space, with the most coverage of all kinds of workloads. VNX unified Synchronization enables multiple workloads and resource management in unpredictable IT environments. Despite this, the machine has the perfect combination of speed, storage space and application software. This device gives you a wider view of the Midrange workload and is optimized for virtual environments and clouds. Other features of this flexible series are the use of Flash in combination to speed up performance. This device can serve File and Block storage access.
Prior to 2011, Midrange’s EMC storage products included the CLARION family as SAN and Celera as NAS. After generating six generations, the company presented its next generation of products under the name VNX and Unified Storage, which simultaneously supports Block and File protocols. The VNX family includes five different VNX5100, VNX5700, VNX5500, VNX5300 and VNX7500 models that have been added to the VNX7600, VNX5800, VNX5600, VNX5400, VNX5200 and VNX8000 since 2013. The major difference between these products is the type of processor and the amount of memory, the number of disks and LUNs, I/O type and port. In addition to the FC port, it is possible to insert other communication port modules, such as iSCSI 1Gb/s, iSCSI 10Gb/s, and FCoE 10Gb/s, which in addition to reducing costs, allows the organization to best communicate with applications requirements.
EMC VNXe Series:
The most affordable EMC storage device that brings the latest features and performance at a modest cost. Very powerful features that are only available in the upgraded VNX series. There is a choice between Unified Storage or Block-Level Storage as well as the ability to use Flash or combine Flash and hard disk management with fully automated management. VNXe has the efficiency, simplicity, cost-effectiveness and other features that the VNX series is known for, and with Unisphere’s superb simplicity in integrated functionality and connectivity, it can also support EMC’s next-generation services. With this suite of software, you can manage, protect, and deliver more easily.
In the next generation of VNX, VNX 3 there is unplanned production of UNITY as a new storage platform in the midrange group of EMC. It has put the Unity Array between VNXe 1600, VNXe 3200, 7600 and Hybrids 8000. In this category of EMC, there are four new models, each in the Storage class or in the form of the (All Flash) category, separated by the letter F (or Hybrid).
EMC Unity has the same speed and simplicity and can easily extend the data to Cloud. This series, like the previous series, has the capabilities of a SAN and NAS. All-flash models simplify this series of storage operations while cutting costs and footprint data center data.
