Trusted Innovation

PowerMax is a culmination of over three decades of cutting-edge research and innovation that continually raises the bar for high-end storage across the industry.

Smart Software

PowerMaxOS brings autonomous storage to life with a built-in, machine learning engine. The machine learning engine analyzes all incoming I/O traffic and automatically places data on the correct media type (flash or SCM) based on the IO profile by analyzing and forecasting an average of 40 million data sets per array to drive over 6 billion decisions per day. The engine uses predictive analytics and pattern recognition to maximize performance without management overhead.

Mission-Critical Availability

PowerMax offers extreme levels of availability for the world’s most critical applications with proven six-nines of availability in a single array, no single points of hardware failure, hot-swappable components, and PowerMaxOS nondisruptive code upgrades (NDU) in under 6 seconds. SRDF software, the gold standard in disaster recovery, provides unmatched flexibility and massive scalability to deliver remote replication over extended distances or across multiple sites. Remote RAID, inherent in the design of SRDF/S replication, provides over 1000x less risk of data loss from multiple drives failing in a RAID 5 group than RAID 6 by servicing all host reads and writes from the remote site with minimal performance impact.

The latest PowerMax innovation extends SRDF/Metro active/active replication by adding Smart DR (disaster recovery) for unmatched data resiliency and increased efficiency. Smart DR copies data from both primary arrays to one remote array to maintain data resiliency (DR operations) even if one primary array becomes unavailable. Copying the data to one remote array saves 50% of storage capacity11 while reducing the SRDF/A network bandwidth needs, helping customers realize maximum data resiliency and efficiency from their SRDF/Metro Smart DR investment.

Reliable Data Protection

SnapVX provides space-efficient local snapshots that can be used for localized protection and recovery and other use cases including development/test, analytics, backups, and patching. SnapVX secure snapshots prevent accidental or malicious deletion, securing them for a specified retention period. In addition, integrated copy data management (iCDM) provides exceptional customer value by enabling application-consistent, on-array copy orchestration with critical applications like Oracle and VMware, enabling operational recovery and copy repurposing.

Dell EMC PowerProtect Storage Direct facilitates self-service data protection while eliminating the needs for a dedicated backup server. PowerProtect provides up to 20 times faster backups and 10 times faster recovery by enabling backup directly from PowerMax to Dell EMC Data Domain. Dell EMC RecoverPoint is available for heterogeneous replication and recovery to any point in time.

Multi-Cloud Infrastructure

Dell EMC’s storage systems easily extend to the cloud to address rapid data growth and to optimize data center resources with simple and efficient data mobility to and from public and hybrid clouds. Cloud Mobility for Dell EMC PowerMax offers seamless and transparent movement of data from PowerMax to cloud, enabling customers to leverage lower cost object storage in cloud for agile and economic benefits, reducing the cost per GB by up to 80% for archive and long-term data retention.

Archiving and long-term retention are primary examples of how PowerMax customers can leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Dell EMC ECS or PowerScale for low-cost object storage. PowerMax data can be recovered back to the source PowerMax if needed. In addition to the economic benefit, archiving to the cloud frees up capacity for on-premises PowerMax arrays to support higher priority applications on-premises -- extending the useful life of PowerMax.

PowerMax data stored in the cloud can also be made available to an AWS, ECS or PowerScale system for secondary processing such as reporting, test/development, and data analytics. Customers can deploy the Dell EMC vApp free of charge from the Amazon Marketplace to transfer PowerMax snapshot data from Amazon S3 object storage to Amazon elastic block storage (EBS). Dell EMC ECS and PowerScale users can access the vApp from VMware vSphere.

Proven Security

PowerMax offers comprehensive security features to ensure businesses can meet stringent corporate governance and compliance requirements while safeguarding mission-critical customer data from unwanted intrusion or cyberattacks. PowerMax data-at-rest encryption (FIPS 140-2 validated) secures every drive and delivers integration with external key managers, enabling customers to simplify security through a centralized key management platform. Tamper proof audit logs allow IT managers to quickly identify unwanted activity and feel confident in the accuracy of original PowerMax logs.

End-to-end efficient encryption enables PowerMax customers to secure storage assets by encrypting data from the host to the storage media on PowerMax. Dell Technologies has partnered with Thales Inc., a leading security firm, to integrate host-based encryption and PowerMax data reduction technology to secure PowerMax data while ensuring 3.5:1 data reduction, guaranteed.

Dell EMC continues to pursue security-related testing and certifications like STIG hardening to support U.S. Federal requirements. Both Federal agencies and non-Federal customers around the world will benefit from PowerMax security hardening. (STIG: Security Technical Implementation Guide)
