VNX5200 Unified Storage Family

Figure 1. Models in the VNX series

Based on the powerful new family of Intel Xeon E5-2600 (Sandy Bridge) processors, the EMC VNX implements a modular architecture that integrates hardware components for block, file, and object with concurrent support for native NAS, iSCSI, Fibre Channel, and FCoE protocols. The series delivers file (NAS) functionality via two-to-eight X-blade data movers and block (iSCI, FCoE, and FC) storage via dual storage processors leveraging full 6 Gb SAS disk drive topology. The system leverages the patented MCx multi-core storage software operating environment that delivers unparalleled performance efficiency. You can also start with block or file functionality and easily upgrade to unified when needed.

EMC VNX5200 Technical Specifications:

  • 2x Intel Xeon E5-2600 quad core processor
  • Maximum of 125 drives
  • 32 GB of RAM
  • RAID 0,1,10,3,5,6
  • Maximum of 375 TB of raw capacity

EMC VNX5200 Details:

The VNX5200 model uses two 1.2GHz, quad-core Xeon E5-2600 processors with 16GB of RAM and a maximum of 125 drives with the following host connectivity option: FC, iSCSI, and FCoE. This model supports block, file, and unified configurations, and utilizes a DPE chassis.

This model uses a DPE that is available in 15 x 3.5″ drive or 25 x 2.5″ drive form factors. Seen in Figures 2 and 3 respectively. It includes four onboard 8Gb/s Fibre Channel ports and two 6Gb/s SAS ports for backend connectivity on each storage processor. A micro-DB9 port and service LAN port are available. EMC service personnel use these ports to connect to the VNX.
