in today’s high demand storage environment. Storage systems are required to provide
powerful and efficient storage technologies, keep data protected, and be simple to use
The VNX multicore initiative, MCx™, is an architecture project that redesigns the core
Block OE stack within the new VNX series (VNX2). Developed with many goals, the MCx
platform’s most significant mission is CPU Scaling. This mission is very simple: take
advantage of the many CPU cores that the Intel microarchitecture offers and create a
solution for further technological growth.
The VNX2 platform is a union of increased hardware performance and the extensive code
changes required to support it. The optimization focuses on ensuring that cache
management and back-end RAID management processes take full advantage of multicore
CPUs, allowing cache and back-end processing software to scale in a linear fashion. In
this way, EMC fully leverages the power of Intel’s latest multicore CPUs. The VNX2 series
has a scaling factor of 97 percent, so future scaling using additional cores is guaranteed.
This not only allows EMC to deliver cost efficient performance, but also to scale while
delivering advanced efficiency and protection.
The VNX2 series is designed for a wide range of environments from mid-tier to enterprise.
Each VNX2 model is offered in file only, block only, and unified (block and file)
implementations. The VNX2 series is still managed through a simple and intuitive user
interface called Unisphere®; this single pane of glass completes the unified experience.
This white paper discusses the VNX2 series models (VNX5200™, VNX5400™,
VNX5600™, VNX5800™, VNX7600™, and VNX8000™), their hardware and software,
limits, I/O modules, and more. This paper also describes the software, serviceability, and
availability features of the VNX2 platform, such as MCx, Block Deduplication, FAST™,
Data-At-Rest Encryption, Windows 8.1/Server 2012 R2 support, One Button Shutdown,
and Unisphere Service Manager.
For details on the VNX5100/VNX5300/VNX5500/VNX5700/VNX7500 models, refer to the
white paper titled Introduction to the EMC VNX Series – VNX5100, VNX5300, VNX5500,
VNX5700, & VNX7500: A Detailed Review, available on EMC Online Support.
