Recently Dell EMC gave their successful storage platform Dell EMC Unity XT a major upgrade and named the new and improved Unity XT series. Apart from more powerful CPU’s and dual socket capability the new Unity XT series can house even more drives, are NVMe ready an run the latest version of Unity OE.

Unity XT series are all equipped with an all-inclusive license so that all features can be enjoyed without additional purchases. This latest version comes with variety of tools specifically helpful in a multicloud environment. Among these tools are CloudIQ, Cloud Edition for flexible cloud deployments and seamless integration with VMWare Cloud foundation.

The upgrade has an exceptional impact on the performance of the Unity XT platform. Next to more IOPS thanks to the dual socket controllers and lower latency with the use of NVMe fast-caching the Unity XT can house more memory and disks, this gained capacity only makes the system more attractive. In addition to the extra and upgraded CPU’s to boost processing speeds Unity XT gains a lot of performance and efficiency due to the newly designed deduplication method and in-line date compression.

The Unity XT series are available as all-flash and hybrid systems, the latter allows the use of spinning disks. Of both all-flash and hybrid Unity XT there currently four models available:
