Earlier today, DELL EMC introduced the latest All-Flash offering in the VMAX All-Flash family. Now with three distinct models- the VMAX 250F, the VMAX 450F, and the VMAX 850F, the VMAX All Flash Arrays all share the trusted Dynamic Virtual Matrix architecture and HYPERMAX OS. The VMAX All-Flash products are specifically architected to meet the storage capacity and performance requirements of the All Flash Enterprise Data Center. The VMAX All Flash products are feature-rich All Flash offerings with specific capabilities designed to take advantage of the new higher capacity flash drives used in the densest configuration possible. The VMAX All Flash Arrays offer enterprise customers the trusted VMAX data services, the improved simplicity, capacity, and performance which their highly virtualized environments demand, while still meeting the economics of the more traditional storage workloads.

While the VMAX 250F was introduced October 10th, I was able to get a preview of the technology back at VMWorld 2016. I sat down in a highly secure room with Scott Delandy (@ScottDelandy) and Melissa Gurney (@SolutionGeek) to get the details.

When most people think traditional EMC, or Dell EMC, they think Storage. While that is about to change, the foundation of the modern data center starts with the right storage array.  At VMWorld 2016, I had the opportunity to chat with Stephan Voss (@VossManVoss) Director of Technical Marketing, Dell EMC Core Technologies.  We talked XtremIO, Vmax Unity and storage software.  Software that brings functionality like iCDM (Integrated Copy Data Management), VMware enablement and application enablement.
