HOPKINTON, Mass., Jan. 14 – EMC Corporation today announced that it has updated its market-leading EMC VMAX Family, making it more powerful, smarter, more trusted, and more efficient for mission-critical applications in VMware virtualized environments for enterprises of all sizes. The EMC VMAX 10K (entry product to the VMAX Family) is now the highest-performing of its class in the industry—and is up to 2X more powerful than its predecessor. EMC also introduced a wave of new features to the EMC VMAX Family (10K, 20K and 40K) through significant updates to VMAX Enginuity software. As customers continue to transform their IT environments, and deploy virtualized Hybrid Clouds, they must tackle consolidation of their most mission-critical applications. Customers across the globe rank EMC as the #1 storage choice for mission-critical environments according to a study from IDC. These enhancements enable customers to implement virtualization and cloud more easily and efficiently than before.
These VMAX 10K technology enhancements make it easier for small to mid-size enterprises to enjoy the powerful capabilities of the VMAX family. It is for this reason that in the third quarter of 2012 30% of VMAX 10K sales were customers new to the EMC VMAX Family.
In 2009, EMC first introduced the VMAX Family and the revolutionary Virtual Matrix Architecture—purpose-built storage for the virtual data center that delivers unprecedented levels of scalability, efficiency, data integrity, availability and performance. We're building upon that foundation with today's enhancements to the VMAX 10K so that customers benefit from ultra-fast application performance and faster CPUs. The VMAX 10K also offers new features previously only available on the VMAX 20K and VMAX 40K.
