1 | Designed for performance, optimized for efficiency

Dell EMC Unity XT Hybrid Storage Arrays deliver impressive performance when running demanding virtualized workloads. These modern systems implement linear multicore scaling and inline data reduction inside all-flash pools for block and file. With the latest dual-socket Intel processor, more cores and memory, these new hybrid platforms, have the power to run applications, process inline data reduction and deliver unified data services - simultaneously. With 85% system efficiency, these platforms leave you more room for effective usable capacity. Dell EMC Unity XT’s modern design future-proofs your investment with a dual-active controller architecture and is NVMe-ready.

2 | Cost effective

Dell EMC Unity XT Hybrid Storage Arrays deliver the performance of flash with the cost effectiveness of disk. These Hybrid systems take advantage of Dell EMC Fully Automated Storage Tiering for Virtual Pools (FAST VPTM) for automated policy-based tiering and FAST CacheTM SSD caching software to intelligently leverage how flash is implemented to increase overall performance while lowering opex. Dell EMC Unity XT Hybrid Arrays feature smarter tuning, use high capacity 12TB NL-SAS HDDs, inline data reduction for all-flash pools, and support the ability to dynamically shrink or expand FAST Cache online.

3 | Unmatched simplicity

Dell EMC Unity XT Hybrid Storage Arrays represent the ultimate in in midrange storage simplicity. These systems are simple to setup enabling installation in just a few minutes and in 15 minutes you’re configured to go; simple to use with an intuitive HTML5 Unisphere™ interface with multiple VMware and Microsoft integrations; simple to service/support that includes a built-in self-service portal with features and capabilities that easily help IT generalists resolve issues faster; simple data migrations with built-in capabilities to easily and non-disruptively migrate file and block data from VNX and 3rd party systems to Dell EMC Unity XT.

4 | All-inclusive software

Dell EMC Unity XT Hybrid Storage Arrays include all the software you need to store, manage, and protect your data. A comprehensive software portfolio includes Unisphere Management Suite (HTML5), inline data reduction with zero detect (all flash pools only), unified multi-protocols, unified snapshots and thin clones with Dell EMC AppSync integration, FAST Cache and FAST VP, data at rest encryption, unified remote replication with Metrosync Manager, QoS, IP multi-tenancy, File Level Retention, limited licenses for AppSync, RecoverPoint Basic, and RecoverPoint for VMs, and a 180-day free VPLEX migration license.

5 | Built for multi-cloud

Dell EMC Unity XT supports multiple cloud deployments options including integration with VMware Cloud Foundation, Cloud Connected Systems/Dell EMC Cloud Tiering Appliance, Cloud Data Insights/CloudIQ, Cloud Data Services/Dell EMC Cloud Storage Services for DRaaS and data mobility in the cloud.

6 | Cloud-based storage analytics

CloudIQ is a no cost cloud-based, near-real-time storage analytics application that’s included for use with Dell EMC Unity XT arrays. It provides comprehensive monitoring of system health, performance, capacity, configurations, and on-array protection metrics. It combines these metrics with machine learning and predictive analytic measurements to improve capacity planning and fix problems before they disrupt business. CloudIQ creates a comprehensive and proactive health score per array to ensure that each Dell EMC Unity XT array provides the optimal foundation for running business data with the highest availability.
