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 VNX5800 Technical Specifications:

  • 2x Intel Xeon E5-2600 6-core processor
  • Maximum of 750 drives
  • 64 GB of RAM
  • RAID 0,1,10,3,5,6
  • Maximum of 2,250 TB of raw capacity

EMC VNX5800 Details:

The VNX5800 model uses two 2.0GHz, 6-core Xeon E5-2600 processors with 32GB of RAM and a maximum of 750 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 VNX5800 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.
