EMC VNX5600 Overview

With EMC VNX5600 data storage, you have the speed and efficiency you need for mixed workloads. Powerful multicore optimization with MCx gives you performance that scales.

And you’re ready to roll out a FLASH 1st strategy. Configure this unified storage system with FAST Cache and flash storage for the highest performance and the lowest latency. Automate storage tiering with FAST VP to help drive down the cost per gigabyte.

These EMC VNX systems maximize efficiency with block- and file-level compression and deduplication. It’s easier to do much more with much less data storage capacity.

EMC VNX5600 Key Features Include:

  • Delivers high performance and low latency with MCx multicore optimization
  • Provides unified block, file, and object support
  • Reduces capacity needs with block-based and file-based deduplication and compression
  • Enables easy storage provisioning for virtual machines: VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V
  • Pairs with FAST Suite to optimize performance and cost
  • Simplifies administration with EMC Unisphere Management Suite
  • Protects data with optional local, remote, and application protection solutions

VNX5600 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 VNX5600 Technical Specifications:

  • 2x Intel Xeon E5-2600 quad core processor
  • Maximum of 500 drives
  • 48 GB of RAM
  • RAID 0,1,10,3,5,6
  • Maximum of 1,500 TB of raw capacity

EMC VNX5600 Details:

The VNX5600 model uses two 2.4GHz, quad-core Xeon E5-2600 processors with 24GB of RAM and a maximum of 500 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. The VNX5600 DPE uses UltraFlex I/O slots for all connectivity. The first slot houses the internal network management switch, which includes a mini-serial port and service LAN port. EMC service personnel use these ports to connect to the SPs.

The DPE includes two base modules, one per SP. Each base module contains a power supply, a BBU, and a SAS module containing two 6Gb/s SAS ports for back-end connectivity to DAEs.
