Dell EMC VNX 8000

The VNX8000 is designed for the enterprise space and replaces and expands the capacity of the Gen 1 VNX7500. This model supports block, file, and unified configurations, and utilizes a storage processor enclosure (SPE) chassis.

The SPs in this model use dual socket, 2.7 GHz, eight-core Xeon E5 processors with 128GB of RAM, supporting a maximum of 1,500 drives with the following host connectivity options: FC, iSCSI, and FCoE. Since this model uses an SPE and contains no drives, the VNX Operating Environment boots from the first four drives (Vault drives) on the first DAE (bus 0 enclosure 0). The VNX8000’ SPEs use UltraFlex I/O slots for all connectivity.

The management system utilized is Unisphere.

FAST VP functionality is enhanced on the VNX2 series and is available for both block and file data. FAST VP optimizes storage utilization by automatically moving data between storage tiers (for example, Flash, SAS, and NL-SAS). Data also moves within tiers. The VNX8000 has a FASTcache capacity of 4.8TB.

The 8000 supports Raid Levels 0, 1, 10, 3, 5 and 6. The maximum number of pools is 60, LUN (Pool) is 4,000 with a maximum number of 8192 LUNS, and a pool size of 512TB.
