Unlocking the Power of Flash with the MCx-Enabled Next-Generation VNX

Continuous data growth coupled with a new generation of multi-core CPUs has placed news demands on storage systems to handle an unprecedented number of workloads. Hard disk drives (HDDs) have become ever more dense and are able to handle greater capacity, but the rotational speed of mechanical HDDs has not improved beyond 15,000rpm since 2001 and is not likely to increase, creating a bottleneck for compute performance. As organizations move toward fully virtualized datacenters, the storage systems they choose today must be able to handle hundreds, even thousands, of virtual machines (VMs) and mixed workloads and support the business not only in the present but into the future.
