Max. 2 or 4 engines can be supported on VMAX 100K ?

Jump to solution

Hi Gurus,

I'm confused about VMAX 100K max. engines supported.

I think it should be max. 2 engines, is it right?

From VMAX 100K spec sheet (2017 year) , it shows max. engines is 2 (4 directors)

From below doc link (2016 year), page 6, image show 100K can support max 4 engines, but the wording said max. dual engines.

yes,  2 x engine for 100K  , 4 directors, or 4 x controllers, graphic is not accurate for the 100K

Terence, yes it had really misled us in past period of time. And even one of customer ordered 100K system with 2 Engines (at that time our sales guys promissed him it could be upgraded to 4-Engine based this slide), then customer heard that it won't be able to upgrade to 4-Engine system (no RPQ will be approved), he returned this VMAX100K back to us.
