Dell EMC VNX 5100

The VNX5100 is an entry-level to mid-tier storage system; it’s predecessor is the AX4-5 Clariion. The 5100 is block only and supports FC protocol for host connectivity. The 5100 uses the DPE form factor in either a 15 drive, 3.5” 3U form factor or a 25 drive, 2.5” 2U form factor.

Each SP in the 5100 utilizes a 1.6GHz Xeon 2-core 5600 processor with 4GB of RAM and supports a maximum of 75 drives or 225TB raw. The management system utilized is Unisphere.

The 5100 supports Raid Levels 0, 1, 10, 3, 5 and 6. The maximum number of pools is 10 with a maximum number of 512 LUNS, 16 TB LUN size.

The VNX series features FASTCache. FASTCache leverages the lower response time and better IOPS of flash drives without dedicating Flash drives to specific applications. FASTCache addresses a hot spot anywhere in the array improving application performance especially for workloads with frequent and unpredictable large increases in I/O activity for an improved Total Cost of Ownership.

FASTCache useable is calculated with Raid 10. The 5100 has a max of 100GB useable using 2 x 100GB SSDs drives.
