Powervault MD36x0i Series - Protect your data

Protect your data

Keep your valuable information safe with these additional PowerVault options: 
  • Remote Replication: Replicate data to any global location that includes mirroring thin provisioned pools.
  • Snapshots: Easily recover files after accidental deletion or alteration with point-in-time copies of data.
  • Virtual Disk Copy (VDC): Enable quick and seamless virtual disk relocation and disk-based backup and recovery with a full, replicated copy of source data.
  • Self-encrypting drives (SEDs): Render data useless to unauthorized users with drive-level encryption, even if the drive has been removed from the enclosure.
  • Instant Secure Erase: Permanently and securely remove data when SEDs are repurposed or decommissioned.

Spend less managing your data

The PowerVault MD3 10GbE iSCSI array series brings affordability to primary storage and allows you to add capacity and software as needed. It keeps your storage directly attached to your data infrastructure and is compatible with Microsoft® Hyper-V®, Citrix® XenServer® and VMware® ESX. In addition, the MD-series storage arrays support vSphere® Storage APIs for Storage Awareness (VASA). Simplify physical and virtual resource management with MD Storage Manager and PowerVault VMware vCenter™ Plug-In 5.0.
MD Storage Manager VMware vCenter Plug-In 5.0 
MD Storage Manager

With wizard-based array configuration and single-pane management, MD Storage Manager can alert you to problems and launch its recovery guru to automatically help troubleshoot and resolve issues.
VMware vCenter

Plug-In 5.0Monitor, manage, provision and optimize storage for performance and availability across your virtual infrastructure. You can also implement Storage Replication Adapters (SRA) to simplify management of disaster recovery with centralized recovery plans and VASA to create profiles that map to volumes and virtual machines.

Upgrade with the Premium Feature Key bundles that meet your priorities.

Data Protection:
Data ProductionEnsure your data is protected with Snapshot, VDC and Remote Replication.
High Performance:
High PerformanceData is increasing at an alarming rate, but performance should not be impacted. This bundle includes the High Performance tier, SSD cache and the additional drive capacity license.

Speed recovery with Dynamic Disk Pools.

Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP) protect data by dynamically distributing data across pools of drives. In the event of a drive failure, DDP will identify the critical data and dynamically rebalance the data so the array can return to an optimal state faster than it would in the typical RAID environment. DDP can now support up to 20 disk pools and up to 120 SSDs.
