The ground-breaking Dell EMC PowerStore achieves new levels of operational simplicity and agility, utilizing a containerbased architecture,
advanced storage technologies, and intelligent automation to unlock the power of your data.
Based on a scale-out architecture and hardware-accelerated advanced data reduction, PowerStore is designed to deliver
enhanced resource utilization and performance that keeps pace with application and system growth. Utilizing the proven
capabilities of VMware ESXi, PowerStore X models with AppsON provide the unique ability to host data-intensive and
storage applications directly on the PowerStore system with a storage-based virtualization environment, with the flexibility
of seamless movement of applications between the storage system and external VMware servers. PowerStore T models
provide organizations with all the benefits of an enterprise unified storage platform for block, file and vVol data, while
enabling flexible growth with the intelligent scale-up AND scale-out capability of appliance clusters.
Based on a versatile scale-up and out platform utilizing Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and today’s most advanced
storage technologies, including end-to-end NVMe Flash, dual-ported Intel® OptaneTM SSDs, NVMe-FC and always-on
data reduction, PowerStore uses powerful analytics, automation and active resource balancing to optimize performance
and eliminate management overhead. Each appliance utilizes dual active-active storage nodes and a container-based
software architecture to provide maximum adaptability.
Connectivity options via Mezzanine cards and IO modules for file, for NFS/SMB connectivity, and block storage for FC
and iSCSI host connectivity (see above table for number of modules supported per node).
Back-end (Drive) Connectivity
