Dell EMC ME4 SAN Storage Array Simplified data management
The Dell EMC ME4 SAN Storage Array Series brings radical simplicity and exceptional affordability to the entry market.
It’s simple to install and configure, comes with all-inclusive software and includes an intuitive web-based HTML5 GUI for “anywhere” management.
ME4 Series storage flexibly configures as DAS or SAN, all flash or hybrid, and you can mix HDD and SSD drives in the configuration.
It also includes built-in compatibility with Microsoft and VMware hypervisors simplifying physical and virtual resource management.
This web-based management GUI simplifies ME4 configuration tasks, alerts you to problems and provides a recovery guru to automatically help troubleshoot and resolve issues.
VMware vCenter Plug-In 6.7
Monitor, manage, provision and optimize storage for performance and availability across your virtual infrastructure.
You can also implement Storage Replication Adapters (SRA) to simplify management of disaster recovery with centralized recovery plans.
Speed recovery with ADAPT Software
Dell EMC ME4 SAN Storage Array Series ADAPT software protects data by dynamically distributing it across pools of drives.
In the event of a drive failure, ADAPT will identify the critical data and dynamically rebalance the data so the array can return to an optimal state faster than it would in the typical RAID environment.
- Saves time and money
- Faster drive rebuilds
- Add just the capacity you need
- Supports up to 1PB capacity or up to 128 drives.
