Dell Technologies has announced updates to Dell EMC PowerMax.

Dell EMC PowerMax is first-to-market with dual port Intel Optane SSDs and the use of Storage Class Memory (SCM) as persistent storage.

Dell Technologies is also announcing that NVMe-oF is now available for all PowerMax arrays, enabling true end-to-end NVMe. This is made possible by newly qualified PowerMax 32Gb FC I/O modules, 32Gb Connectrix switches, directors and 32Gb NVMe host adapters with Dell EMC PowerPath multipathing software.

The combination of PowerMax’s scale-out, end-to-end NVMe architecture and the use of SCM provides customers with a faster, more efficient storage system that delivers up to 15M IOPS; up to 350Gbps bandwidth; up to 50% better response times; and sub-100us (microseconds) read response times.

PowerMax’s built-in machine learning engine leverages predictive analytics and pattern recognition to automatically place data on the correct media type (SCM or Flash) based on its IO profile. It analyzes and forecasts 40-million data sets in real-time, driving 6-billion decisions per day

Dell EMC PowerMax allows customers to easily automate infrastructure operations and DevOps workflows. Customers can now serve PowerMax storage for configuration management and application deployment, including containerised workloads.
