Dell EMC introduces world’s FASTEST storage array – the Dell EMC PowerMax

At Dell Technologies World 2018, Jeff Clarke, Vice Chairman Product and Operations of Dell Technologies announced Dell EMC PowerMAX. According to Dell EMC, this is the foundation for powering up the modern data center.


One of the key elements of a digital transformation is leveraging data analytics and machine learning to deliver new insights for the business, increase the speed of execution and deliver competitive differentiation.

A modern data center must be built with solutions that can support these workloads as well as traditional applications, which are all driving new levels of performance requirements.

With end-to-end NVMe, a multi-controller scale-out architecture, a real-time machine learning engine and intelligent data reduction, PowerMax is the definition of Modern Tier 0 Storage. It’s designed to support mission-critical applications of today and tomorrow.

Build-in Machine Learning Engine that drives over 6 billion decisions per day

One of the great capabilities of PowerMax is that it is smart. PowerMaxOS unlocks the power of this system with a built-in machine learning engine that leverages predictive analytics and pattern recognition to analyze and forecast over 40 million data sets in real time in a single array. This drives over six billion decisions per day to maximize performance with no management overhead. It learns from patterns over time and recognizes changes in real time and rebalances data accordingly by placing it on the appropriate media type (SCM or Flash).

Data analytics and machine learning capability is a key consideration today to modernize the data centers. IDC predicts that by 2020, 60-70 percent of Fortune 2000 companies will have at least one mission-critical workload that leverages real-time data analytics.

PowerMax also includes inline deduplication and compression to minimize storage footprint with up to 5:1 data reduction.

Dell EMC Partners – Power UP your business and serve more customers

This is a great opportunity for IT Solution Providers to educate the IT buyers on these new trends and help them make IT real. I hope many of the IT Solution Providers will take advantage of these new trends and IT buyer requirements and accelerate their go-to-market, profits and margins to power up their businesses.
