Hi KNP ,

  

The first Symmetrix, the Model 4200, appeared in 1990.

The Symmetrix Model 3 was announced in 1995.

The Symmetrix 5500 introduced SRDF and Consistency Group features.

The Symmetrix 3000/5000 introduced TimeFinder and PowerPath features.

The Symmetrix 8000 or Symm5 was the first Symmetrix to introduce DUAL bus architecture, providing redundancy in the path to memory.

The Symmetrix DMX800 is an incrementally scalable, high-end storage array, which features modular disk array enclosures.

The DMX 1-2 introduced the Direct Matrix Architecture storage array technology that employs a matrix of dedicated, serial point-to-point connections instead of traditional buses or switches.

The Symmetrix DMX-4 uses redundant Global memory.

The Symmetrix VMAX System was announced in 2009.

•The features included:

•Fully Automated Storage Tiering for Virtual Pools (FAST VP)

• New DARE encryption with RSA and non-disruptive data movement with Federated Live Migration The Symmetrix VMAXe series announced in 2011 provided a new entry point for companies looking to move into the high-end Symmetrix family. In 2012, the VMAX naming structure has been modified to clearly reference specific models which are VMAX 10K/VMAXe, VMAX 20K/VMAX, and VMAX 40K.
