Dell EMC VNX 5300

The VNX5300 is an entry-level to mid-tier storage system which can be either a block or unified (file and block) system. The predecessor to the VNX 5300 is the CX4-120 and the NS-120. The 5300 uses the DPE form factor in either a 15 drive, 3.5” 3U form factor or a 25 drive, 2.5” 2 U form factor.

Each SP in the 5300 utilizes a 1.6GHz Xeon 5600 4-core processor with 8GB of RAM for a total of 16GB RAM between the 2 SPS, and supports a maximum of 125 drives or 360 TB raw.  The management system utilized is Unisphere.

The 5300 supports Raid Levels 0, 1, 10, 3, 5 and 6. The maximum number of pools is 20, with a maximum number of 2,048 LUNS, 16TB 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 5300 has a max of 500GB useable using 10 x 100GB SSDs or 400GB useable using 4 x 200GB drives.
