More than 20 years ago, Symmetrix introduced the first high-end enterprise storage array—the Symmetrix With each new Symmetrix, EMC elevated the industry standard for performance, scale, and capability of enterprise storage, and continuously maintained its position as the global high-end storage leader.Symmetrix is also the world’s most trusted storage, having released several first-to-market innovations that further defined the industry. From the very first Intelligent Cached Disk Array (ICDA), to local and remote replication, to advanced security and data protection solutions, Symmetrix has always been trusted to perform in the most mission-critical and demanding environments anywhere, including those in Banking, Manufacturing, and Government and Defense, to name a few.And with a proven track record of being both powerful and trusted, Symmetrix, with its advanced development, is also the smartest storage. With Intel technology inside, Symmetrix VMAX 40K, 20K, and 10K platforms are again leading the industry with new innovations, including Fully Automated Storage Tiering for Virtual Pools (FAST VP), new levels of encryption with RSA, groundbreaking new models for nondisruptive data movement with Federated Live Migration, and the industry’s best storage for virtual server environments.EMC recently introduced the newest Symmetrix array, the Symmetrix VMAX 40K, which delivers two- times the performance and scale over the current Symmetrix VMAX, and flexible deployment options such as the Dense Configuration Option and System Bay Dispersion for space-constrained data centers.Note to Presenter: Click now in Slide Show Mode for animation.The Symmetrix VMAX 10K provides an entry point for companies looking to move into the high-end Symmetrix family.Symmetrix VMAX 10K is specifically optimized to include capabilities like Virtual Provisioning and FAST VP as standard, to best serve a set of customer requirements EMC has identified, which we will cover in detail.While Symmetrix VMAX 40K and 20K are powerful, trusted, and smart, Symmetrix VMAX 10K is powerful, trusted, and efficient. We’ll talk about all the ways that Symmetrix VMAX 10K is more efficient for your needs.Symmetrix VMAX 20KSymmetrix VMAX 10KSymmetrix VMAX 40KSymmetrix VMAX 10KVM and z/OS integration,DARE,FAST VP,Federated Live Migration2X performance & scaleDense config. optionSystem Bay DispersionFederated Tiered StorageFAST VP for System z and IBM iRecoverPoint splitterEfficient: FAST VP,FLM,100% VP, RecoverPoint splitterFaster performanceFTS2.5” drivesDrive mixingThird-party rackSRDFConsistency GroupsAutoSwap, SRDF over Fibre ChannelConcurrent SRDF, SRDF/Star, GDDRSecure Erase, Audit, ServiceICDA, RAID, NDUTimeFinder,PowerPathPowerful.Trusted.Efficient.Smart.

The 100 percent virtually provisioned environment works with the Zero Space Reclaim capability, which when combined with EMC Open Replicator for Symmetrix, eliminates separate steps to reclaim “zero” space when migrating virtually provisioned devices.Virtual Provisioning also allows you to shrink and grow pools with automatic balancing across them. And when combined with TimeFinder clones and virtual snapshots, you can also take further advantage of the virtually provisioned environment thus preserving storage capacity.FAST VP optimizes performance and reduces cost, while radically simplifying management and increasing storage efficiency. FAST VP’s advantages over all vendors include more granular movement of sub-LUN data between tiers, which provides not only better optimization of Flash drives, but better responsiveness in adapting to changes in data activity. FAST VP also supports two, three or four storage tiers whereas some competitors support only two. In the next few slides, we’ll spend go into great detail on FAST VP.Symmetrix VMAX 10K includes pre-configuration for easy set-up on the same day the array is received, with an installation that takes less than four hours.The combination of Symmetrix VMAX 10K’s Virtual Provisioning and Auto-Provisioning Groups delivers dramatic reductions in administration and machine time required to perform storage provisioning.For example, the time required to provision 1 TB of capacity—which includes forming RAID groups, creating and initializing the LUNs, and mapping the LUNs to hosts—can be accomplished in fewer than four minutes. Compared to a Symmetrix DMX-3 using traditional thick provisioning tools, this represents a more than 95 percent reduction in total time to provision.CompressionSATA/SASFTSZero Space Reclaim, grow and shrink with Auto Pool RebalanceReal-time analysis provides continuous optimization4 hour hardware installationand 4 minutes to first I/OSmartEfficient

6 Symmetrix VMAX 10K Platform Highlights Symmetrix VMAX 10K uses a hardware engine and an integrated system bay that can house both engines and drives in a single enclosure. VMAX 10K Engines can support up to 300 drives per engine. Drive bays 1 and 2, each containing 300 drives, can also be added to the system for a total of drives, all of which use custom-built EMC 19” rack cabinets for optimal floor space use additionally you can use a customer provided third-party rack for the Symmetrix VMAX 10K. Symmetrix VMAX 10K is available only with single-phase power, and with the array dispersion capability, bays can be separated up to 10 meters apart using optical cables. This allows you to work around obstacles that might present themselves in the data center, such as a pole or column.VMAX 10K engines with Intel processors2 to 8 directors in 1 to 4 enginesUp to 1,560 drivesIntegrated system bayUp to 300 drives per system or storage bayUp to four bays with 2.5” drivesUp to six bays with 3.5” or 2.5”/3.5” mixEMC RackSpace- and power-efficient19” rack cabinetSingle-phase powerArray dispersion3rd Party Rack (customer provided)Allows data center standardizationEMC bezels and filler panels

8 VMAX 10K Gets Faster/Denser* NewIn October 2012, the VMAX 10K was updated to become faster and denser. New faster CPUs with more cores and a faster virtual matrix fabric increase performance up to 100 percent. Specifically, front-end bandwidth increases up to 30 percent and back-end IOPS increase up to 100 percent. In addition, new VMAX 10K systems now support 2.5” drives in high-density enclosures and these can be mixed with 3.5” drives in standard D15 enclosures to get the best of both performance and capacity from different types of drives.The VMAX 10K also gets two features previously supported on the VMAX 40K—Federated Tiered Storage and Data at Rest Encryption Federated Tiered Storage allows the VMAX to manage other storage, making your old storage assets smarter and extending their useful life. is the best implementation for enterprise storage and secures data against theft, which may help you improve regulatory compliance.VMAX 10K gets faster and denser in October 2012*Back-end IOPS increases up to 100% (2x)Front-end bandwidth increases up to 30%Supports 2.5” drives, mixing 2.5” and 3.5”Adds and Federated Tiered Storage* Serial number xxx987xxxx only

This support allows the VMAX 10K to support up to twice as many drives per tile or per bay, increasing performance density for workloads that are spindle-bound. Using the high-density enclosures can also reduce power consumption and weight each by 33 percent compared to using the same number of 3.5” drives. The updated VMAX 10K is also able to support up to 1,560 drives in a 4- engine configuration, or 44 percent more drives than before, and now supports several new 2.5” drives, including high-performance and high-capacity SAS disks and new enterprise Flash drives (EFDs) in both 2.5” and 3.5” form factors.* Serial number xxx987xxxx only
10 VMAX 10K Savings with FAST VP This100% Fibre Channel100 TB1,080 disksWith FAST VP, the Symmetrix VMAX 10K helps organizations save money and resources.In the past, 100 TB of storage would require over 1,000 high-speed Fibre Channel disk drives. Now with FAST VP running on Symmetrix VMAX 10K, that same 100 TB requires slightly over 110 disk drives—almost a 90 percent reduction. The FAST VP software intelligently places information based on the application’s usage of storage.Note to Presenter: Click now in Slide Show Mode for animation.But more importantly, FAST VP can lower the storage cost by 40 percent and at the same time improve the performance by 40 percent. No other vendor’s storage array can deliver these capabilities, and EMC has the facts to back this up.40%lower storage costshigher performance2–3% Enterprise FlashBecomes this18–28% Fibre Channel70–80% SATA100 TB112 disks
11 Wikibon Confirms EMC Is #1 in ATS Automated Tiered Storage (ATS) is a key differentiator for arraysTier 1 and 1.5 Storage ArraysReport FindingsEMC leads ATS in Tiers 1 and 1.5 with FAST VPVMAX 10K 33% better than HP 3PARFAST VP delivers clear ROI, cuts costs by 20–30%Value Index (Max 100)FAST VP has been a differentiator for Symmetrix VMAX since its introduction. However, since FAST was first introduced, other competitors have tried to come up with their own ways to automate tiered storage. Wikibon recently published a report showing just how differentiated FAST VP is (source:The study centered on the requirements of Automated Tiered Storage (or ATS) on Tier 1 and Tier 1.5 arrays. The study assumed that the workloads supported by these arrays are large-scale, very high value applications with aggressive, consistent performance and very demanding RPO and RTO requirements.Wikibon presents the current business case for tiered storage, which is simple—reduced cost of storage and reduced cost of managing storage. The long-term belief is that risk can also be reduced, as the products improve and users become comfortable with the new business processes required to manage tiered storage.The report identifies two types of storage tiers. There are tiers of storage arrays (Tier 1 and Tier 1.5), and tiers within the storage arrays (SSDs through SATA). In this study Wikibon researched the Automated Tiered Storage capabilities of Tier 1 arrays and the high-end of Tier 1.5 arrays to confirm that ATS will work with the most challenging workloads.The bottom line is that Wikibon found potential savings that are meaningful to CIOs. Specifically, their research with early practitioners suggests that ATS is an evolutionary technology that will be widely adopted and shave storage TCO by 20 percent over a four-year period. The report shows that EMC leads the industry significantly in Tier 1 and Tier 1.5 ATS with FAST VP. It documents how FAST VP delivers clear ROI to EMC customers with projected cost savings of 20 to 30 percent.Note to Presenter: This report is available through the link above and can be a great way to help your customers see the value of FAST VP. There are also two new online courses that will help you position FAST VP and VMAX 10K against the competition.Source: Wikibon, December 2011Vendor ATS Solutions EvaluatedHDS Dynamic TieringIBM Easy TierEMC FAST VPHP TX Tiered Storage ManagerHP 3Par Adaptive Optimization* Note: VMAX 10K and entry-level configuration of HDS VSP are both at the low end of Tier 1 Visit here for the full report:
12 FAST VP: Automatically Optimizes Application Performance FAST ElementsStorage Tier: A shared storage resource with common characteristicsFAST Policies: Policies that manage data placement and movement across storage tiersStorage Group: A logical grouping of devices for common managementStorage TierFAST PoliciesPlatinumStorage GroupsTier 1200 GB Flash RAID 5 (3+1)It’s important to understand the key elements of Symmetrix FAST.A storage tier is a shared storage resource that is defined by a combination of storage media and RAID protection—for example, Flash storage with RAID 5 protection.FAST Policies manage data placement and movement across storage tiers. For example, a “Platinum” policy could consist of 25 percent Flash, 50 percent Fibre Channel, and 25 percent SATA. And a “Silver” policy could be defined by a mix of only Fibre Channel and SATA.A Storage Group contains a set of storage devices that are associated with an application. A FAST Policy is associated with each Storage Group, so FAST can monitor and optimize the performance of the Storage Group to make the best use of Flash and SATA drives—reducing cost per IOPS and cost per gigabyte while meeting the performance requirements of the application. FAST will manage the percentage of storage tiers of Flash, Fibre Channel, and SATA allocated to each Storage Group.These concepts allow you to create storage tiers, define specific FAST Policies, and then apply them to Storage Groups as appropriate. This allows FAST to deliver the right level of service to each application or line of business.3%DB2_SG25%Tier 2146 GB 15K FC RAID 1100%Oracle_SGSilverTier 31 TB SATA RAID 6 (14+2)100%100%Development_SGTier 4FTS PER VENDORBronze80%20%

It simplifies management and operations and consolidates heterogeneous storage under Symmetrix VMAX 10K, 20K, and 40K control. It provides the ability to use trusted Symmetrix features such as FAST VP, SRDF, TimeFinder, VLUN, and VAAI. Federated Tiered Storage extends the life and value of older storage assets. It can also be used to move all the data from the external storage assets to VMAX. With FAST VP, the external capacity can be declared as a tier within FAST, and FAST will automatically move data between the external array and VMAX to optimize performance.Symmetrix VMAX assures data integrity for external arrays with validation checksums. While other vendors such as HDS claim virtualization, they do not have external array data integrity checking.

The encryption engines automatically encrypt all data written to disk to address security and compliance concerns regarding data exposure when drives are removed or arrays are replaced.Symmetrix data-at-rest encryption is distinct from PowerPath Encryption—which encrypts logical volumes at the host level—and adds built-in protection for data at rest on a Symmetrix VMAX system with no performance impact. Individual disks are encrypted with the keys either stored on the array in the service processor, or can be managed through RSA Key Manager as part of an enterprise-wide encryption management strategy.Note to Presenter: The FIPS 140 certification (#1610, dated September 26, 2011) can be viewed here: (search on “1610”)Overall Level: 1Design Assurance: Level 3 -FIPS-approved algorithms: AES (Cert. #1638)Other algorithms: AES (Cert. #1638, key wrapping)This is UNIQUE for disk storage.FIPS Validated: A Certification Mark of NIST, which does not imply product endorsement by NIST, the U.S. or Canadian Governments.FIPS Inside: A Certification Mark of NIST, which does not imply product endorsement by NIST, the U.S. or Canadian Governments.It’s important to note that this capability requires the encryption-enabled Symmetrix VMAX Engines, and cannot be intermixed with existing or non-encryption-enabled Symmetrix VMAX Engines.FIPS Validated: A Certification Mark of NIST, which does not imply product endorsement by NIST, the U.S., or Canadian Governments.* Serial number xxx987xxxx only
15 Enginuity: Host I/O Limits NewSet upper limitsIOPS, MB/s, or bothCurrently staticBy storage or port groupLUNs for database or …Front-end portsResources dividedEqual sharingPrevents apps or servers from consuming more than their share of I/OPORT GROUPSSTORAGE GROUPS8%30%50%FE PORTHost I/O Limits is a tool that customers, enterprise service providers or third party service providers can use to gain control and predictability over the application performance on their arrays. By limiting the performance of applications to a specific IOPS or MB/sec quota, the front end resources can be accurately partitioned between the applications that share these resources. In addition, they can set their customer’s expectations for performance to a bound limit that is not based solely on the available resources of the array, but by manual settings. You can run more intensive applications on the same hardware, improving ROI.Performance quotas are divided up among the directors in the storage group masking view at the time of setting the limits. For example, if a user sets a quota of 50MB/s on a storage group with two directors, each director will get 25MB/s of quota. These quotas, or limits, are not shared among directors within a storage group masking view. Each director monitors its own LUNs for limits and slows I/O once limits are reached in order to discourage more. The system has flexibility to burst I/O; If applications underutilize their quotas for a period of time, then they’re allowed to go above their quota in short bursts.
16 Powerful Scalability for Hybrid Cloud World’s most scalable high-end storage arrays1–4 Engines1–8 Engines1–8 EnginesEMC offers customers a full line of high-end storage platforms. Let’s take a closer look at choosing among the different models.Symmetrix VMAX 10K is the entry platform into the Symmetrix line and is ideal for those customers needing high-end scale and availability with the ease of smaller arrays. VMAX 10K can be installed quickly; in fact, EMC is seeing customers obtain the first I/O within a two-hour setup window. VMAX 10K offers the perfect balance among ease of use, performance, high availability, and price for smaller enterprises or upper midtier customers who require a multi-controller storage design.When higher levels of scale, capacity, availability and performance are essential, and full replication and high customization are required, Symmetrix VMAX 20K is the most appropriate choice. VMAX 20K offers up to eight Engines and 2,400 drives, providing support for mainframe and IBM i hosts as well as open environments. VMAX is a customizable solution with high levels of scaling and performance.Symmetrix VMAX 40K represents the highest performing, most agile storage platform in the world. Customers who need to run multiple, high-demand workloads on a single array or are experiencing exceptional data growth will benefit from the performance, scale, and high availability of VMAX 40K.Compared with existing configurations, Symmetrix VMAX 40K features:50 percent more CPU cores2x more cache memory2x more usable capacity2x more Virtual Matrix fabrics3x more performance (bandwidth and back-end IOPS)High-density configurations (3,200 drives)System Bay DispersioneMLC Flash drivesArray Specifications48 CPU cores512 GB cache memory64 Fibre Channel front-end portsDual Virtual Matrix1,560 drives, 1.5 PB usableBusiness RequirementsMulti-controller architectureEnterprise RASEase of use is built inScale-up and scale-out designArray Specifications128 CPU cores1 TB cache memory128 Fibre Channel front-end portsDual Virtual Matrix2,400 drives, 2 PB usableBusiness RequirementsHigh scale, capacity, and performanceStandard and Virtual ProvisioningEncryptionMainframe and IBM iArray Specifications192 CPU cores2 TB cache memory128 Fibre Channel front-end portsQUAD Virtual Matrix, PCI Gen22, ” drives, 4 PB usable3, ” drives, 2.8 PB usableBusiness RequirementsHighest scale, capacity, performanceFlexibility with System Bay DispersionStandard and Virtual ProvisioningEncryptionMainframe and IBM i
17 Optimized Bundled Software Advanced Software Suite*FAST VPEMC Unisphere for VMAXHeat MapDashboards and more+OptimizationSymmetrix VMAX 10K includes the core software package, which includes the Enginuity Operating Environment, Virtual Provisioning software, TimeFinder for VMAX 10K clone and snapshots, an integrated RecoverPoint splitter functionality for VMAX 10K and the Symmetrix Management suite.The VMAX 10K Advanced Software Suite includes FAST VP and is ideal for three-tier configurations. Also included is path management with EMC PowerPath SE, plus nondisruptive migration titles such as Federated Live Migration, SRDF /DM (data mobility), Open Replicator/LM (live migration), and Open Migrator/LM. This package offers migration options for heterogeneous, open systems environments for both EMC and non-EMC arrays, whether you’re doing a large-scale system consolidation, or host-based or network-based migrations.The VMAX 10K Base Software Suite has the same functionality as the VMAX 10K Advanced Software Suite, but excludes FAST VP. This is optimally priced for single-tier configurations when customers do not need FAST VP, and provides a lower software entry point. A FAST VP license can be added to the array on a future date after purchase.The newest suite, VMAX 10K Symmetrix Management Suite has the same functionality as the VMAX 10K Base Software Suite but does not include TimeFinder for VMAX 10K. (Note to Presenter: This is optimal for customers who do not require local replication or extremely price sensitive deals.)Note to Presenter: Symmetrix VMAX 10K software is priced on a flat-fee-per-terabyte license.TimeFinder for VMAX 10KCore Enginuity SuiteAvailabilityEnginuity for Symmetrix VMAX 10KVirtual ProvisioningFTS & FLMDCP (Dynamic Cache Partitioning)Host I/O LimitsOptimizer/Virtual LUNIntegrated RecoverPoint splitterSymmetrix Migration SuiteEMC Open ReplicatorEMC Open MigratorSRDF /DMFederated Live MigrationMigration*Other Symmetrix VMAX 10K software suites available
18 Business ContinuityNow let’s take a few moments and look at how EMC delivers industry-leading business continuity and disaster recovery solutions.
19 Local and Remote Replication Trusted, smart, and efficient replication and managementLocalRemoteManagementWith TimeFinder for VMAX 10K, you have the option of creating a full clone, which is a 100 percent copy of what has been allocated to the virtually provisioned volume, or TimeFinder VP (Virtual Pool) Snaps. TimeFinder VP Snaps are space-efficient snaps for Virtual Pool devices and provide up to 32 VP Snaps per source. The benefit of VP snaps are they dramatically improve cache utilization and deliver simplified pool management in a 100 percent virtually provisioned environment like VMAX 10K.The integrated RecoverPoint splitter for VMAX 10K is also available on this platform to enable RecoverPoint’s l or remote replication. RecoverPoint provides a DVR-like capability with near-zero recovery point objectives (RPO); RecoverPoint provides a heterogeneous block-level local replication; RecoverPoint provides bi-directional, heterogeneous block-level remote replication—both synchronous and asynchronous, with a 90 percent reduction in WAN bandwidth; and RecoverPoint is also integrated with VMware’s vCenter Site Recovery Manager.SRDF is the most widely deployed, array-based disaster restart solution in the industry. It runs on Enginuity for VMAX 10K, and is the data protection and replication standard for high-end Symmetrix storage. The SRDF family’s major benefits are that it:Protects against local and regional disruptionsIncreases application availability by reducing downtimeMinimizes/eliminates performance impact on applications and databasesIs independent of hosts and operating systems, applications, and databasesImproves RPOs and recovery time objective (RTOs) with automated restart solutionsIs mission-critical proven with more than 40,000 licenses shipped and numerous testimonials and referencesSRDF’s major advantage is that it is a well-proven, enterprise-wide disaster recovery solution, not a point solution for an individual application or database. SRDF with Thick to Thin replication is supported between Symmetrix VMAX 40K, 20K, 10K, and older Symmetrix DMX-4 or DMX-3 arrays. Support for site-to-site, 3-site configurations, and Star support is available depending on Symmetrix hardware and Enginuity releases.Replication Manager also uses a centralized management console to simplify RecoverPoint and TimeFinder operations by providing a single, wizard-driven GUI to automate the creation of “application-consistent” replicas. Replication Manager supports TimeFinder and RecoverPoint in both local and remote applications, and operates in both physical and virtual environments.TimeFinder for VMAX 10KFull clonesVP SnapsRecoverPointTimeFinderRecoverPointSRDFReplication Manager

It’s important to note that RecoverPoint/SE does not support Symmetrix VMAX 10K and that the VMAX 10K is the only Symmetrix that supports the array-based write splitter.RecoverPoint/CL and RecoverPoint/EX both support block LUNs from the Symmetrix VMAX 10K storage arrays and RecoverPoint or later is required for support of the Symmetrix VMAX 10K. Both RecoverPoint/CL and RecoverPoint/EX support an array-based write splitter for the VMAX 10K. RecoverPoint/CL supports mixed storage and intelligent-fabric environments and up to 300 TB of replicated data, as well as cascaded three-site replication.RecoverPoint/EX supports Symmetrix VMAX 10K arrays and zero or more VNX series, CLARiiON CX3, and CLARiiON CX4 arrays for local and remote block-level replication.RecoverPoint offers flexible RPOs with dynamic synchronous and asynchronous options to allow you to customize RPOs based on criticality of their data. It’s flexible enough to replicate between Symmetrix VMAX 10K arrays, Symmetrix VMAX 10K to VNX, Symmetrix VMAX 10K to CLARiiON, and even from Symmetrix VMAX 10K to non-EMC arrays.With a 90 percent reduction in replicated data due to built-in WAN deduplication, data compression, and write folding, you can save on network costs and, in many cases, can use existing networks to protect your data.Whatever the topology, Symmetrix VMAX 10K and RecoverPoint provide application-level consistency and recovery for federated, clustered, physical, virtual, and cloud environments.T0T+90
21 Business SolutionsLet’s take a look at some real world use cases for VMAX 10K and how your business can benefit from the solution.
22 Optimized for VMware Environments vSphere and VMware integrationOptimized for VMwareVMAX plug-in to admin through vSpherePerformance OptimizedAlmost 700K IOPSFAST VPSymmetrix VMAX 40K, 20K, and 10K are the best storage arrays for virtual server environments, either VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, bringing both smart and powerful functionality to these environments. This graphic outlines the VMWare integration and the next slide will go into detail on integration with Microsoft’s Hyper-V.EMC’s Enginuity Operating Environment delivers integration with VMware vSphere 5.x with support for vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI). VAAI includes a set of key APIs that intelligently offload storage hardware acceleration functions to the storage array. This increases scalability by enabling 10- times less I/O for formatting commands, with 10-times more virtual machines per data storage, and 10-times faster replication of virtual machines to create snapshots and clones that can be used to speed deployments.The Symmetrix VMAX family is VMware Certified and supports VMware VASA (vSphere Storage APIs for Storage Awareness) and VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM). VASA can be used to implement QoS through compliance with storage profile assignments for VMs and their associated ESX datastores (LUNs). VMware SRM is supported by Symmetrix VMAX family, SRDF for VMAX 10K, and RecoverPoint, and simplifies and automates disaster recovery workflows.Beyond the standard VMware integration, EMC has delivered Virtual Storage Integrator (VSI). With VSI, storage administrators can allow virtual server administrators to have access to storage resources to provision capacity.
