Dell EMC Unity XT: No compromise unified storage for a multi-cloud world
Dell EMC Unity XT All-Flash and Hybrid Flash arrays provide compelling simplicity, all-inclusive data storage software, blazing speed, optimized efficiency, multi-cloud enablement all in a modern design to meet the needs of resource-constrained IT professionals in large or small companies.
Designed for performance, optimized for efficiency and built for multi-cloud environments, these systems are the perfect fit for supporting general purpose virtualized applications.
The Dell EMC Unity XT 480F Storage deliver consistent high performance for midrange workloads.
This unified storage platform is designed for performance and is NVMe-ready to deliver high-speed access to business data with the ability to simultaneously run mixed application workloads, process inline data reduction, and provide data services with no performance overhead.
Dell EMC has redesigned its highly successful Unity storage arrays with a new hardware architecture (not just a controller upgrade) that delivers better performance and efficiency.
The new Unity XT storage family includes the same option for all-flash or hybrid, the same all-inclusive software, and the same simplicity of operations, but with a new architecture and full multi-cloud functionality.
All Unity XT models offer active/active dual storage processors but add CPU, memory, and drives in a small footprint.
Configurations are available as either all-flash models (380F/480F/680F/880F) or as hybrid models (380/480/680/880).
The 380/380F models retain the Broadwell chip and single-socket design to ensure optimal cost/performance but add advanced deduplication.
The 480/480F, 680/680F, and 880/880F models have been upgraded to dual-socket Intel Skylake CPUs and are NVMe-ready.
All models offer expanded asynchronous replication for file data and an option for 25GbE optical connectivity.
The hybrid models also now offer 12TB nearline SAS drives.
The Unity XT retains its flagship ease of deployment and management.
ESG has previously validated the ability to get Unity installed and configured to full operations in 25 minutes using Unisphere’s simple, powerful, intuitive interface, as well as the wide range of included software.
