The XtremIO storage system is based on a
scale- out architecture. The system uses
building blocks, called X-Bricks, which can be
clustered together to grow performance and
capacity as required. An X-Brick by itself is a
high availability, high performance SAN storage
appliance with 5TB, 10TB or 20TB capacity that
can drive incredible database loads, handle
thousands of virtual machines and support
thousands of virtual desktops. The logical
usable amount of storage available is
substantially higher than the physical flash due to real-time, inline data reduction and thin provisioning. When additional IOPS performance or capacity is required, the XtremIO storage system scales-out linearly, such that two X-Bricks will supply twice the IOPS and four X-Bricks will supply four times the IOPS. Latency remains consistently low as the system scales due to the powerful RDMA Infiniband fabric within the system.
Big, small, or anywhere in between, there’s an XtremIO array sized right for you. With a scale-out design that grows according to your needs, additional performance and capacity are added in a building-block approach. XtremIO’s advanced architecture ensures that maximum performance is maintained as the system scales – without administrator intervention, conﬁguration or tuning! All resources scale in balance – storage processors, memory, ﬂash capacity, and host ports – so you always get the most out of the system and there are no performance bottlenecks.
And when rethinking ﬂash storage from the ground-up, why not remake data protection in the process? XtremIO’s ﬂash-speciﬁc data protection algorithms ensure the array is as resilient as it is fast. Every X-Brick has its data protected in an N+2 scheme that tolerates multiple simultaneous
SSD failures. Optimal data encoding and decoding processes recover from failed SSDs rapidly with distributed rebuilds. Hot spares are not needed since XtremIO’s distributed rebuilding process utilizes free space in the array. And while providing this extreme level of data protection, XtremIO’s algorithms also outperform every traditional RAID level while demanding fewer write cycles from the ﬂash. It’s data protection that is faster, safer, utilizes less capacity overhead, and yields the highest ﬂash endurance. Only on XtremIO.
INCREDIBLY POWERFUL SCALE-OUT
With ExtremIO, Lock in
Your Support Pricing
XtremIO Xpect More Program lowers TCO by locking in Premium Support Services pricing for up to seven years, longer than any other vendor. If you purchase an XtremIO array between July 1, 2014 and December 31, 2015 with three years of Premium Support Service, you will have the option to renew that contract at the same price for up to four more years. That’s what you should expect from the leader in Flash.
Each X-Brick is comprised of:
• One 2U Disk Array Enclosure (DAE),
• 13 (Starter X-Brick) or 25 eMLC SSDs (400GB or
800GB SSD options)
• Two redundant power supply units (PSUs)
• Two redundant SAS interconnect modules
• One Battery Backup Unit
• Two 1U Storage Controllers (redundant storage
Each Storage Controller includes:
• Two redundant Power Supply Units (PSUs)
• Two 8Gb/s Fibre Channel (FC) ports
• Two 10GbE iSCSI ports
• Two 40Gb/s InfiniBand ports
• One 1Gb/s management/IPMI port. All of this
drives the hardware magic of XtremIO, and
that is only the beginning
XtremIO arrays scale-out to any desired performance or capacity
level. Just add more ‘X-Brick’ scaling units.

Unlike hard drives, flash media has a limited write cycle life span. Also unlike hard drives, data stored on flash cannot be directly overwritten. Rather it must first be erased (which is very slow) and then reprogrammed with the new data. Thus, it is imperative to engineer the storage system to ensure that the flash media will last for the expected life span of the array under heavy enterprise workloads. XtremIO has developed several technologies that ensure our storage system will last for at least five years under constant, full speed write workloads.
Flash Media Longevity
It’s easy to think about XtremIO as just another flash array that’s great for boosting
performance on some critical application. But if that’s the only way you think about it,
you’re missing the huge value it brings across your data center. It’s common for
XtremIO customers to begin with a targeted workload in mind, but quickly find out
they can expand the use cases for the array with additional applications and workloads, and to revise their flash strategy to use XtremIO across the board.
To our customers, XtremIO is magic. It transforms their datacenters. It transforms their businesses. It transforms they way they spend their time because they no longer worry about provisioning or tuning complexity. If you haven’t taken a hard look at XtremIO, you’re missing out on one of the most important technological shifts to come along in a decade.
XtremIO’s features are best described in five categories; achieving longevity of the flash media, lowering the effective cost of flash capacity, delivering performance and scalability, providing operational efficiency, and delivering advanced storage array functionality. Many features overlap these categories, providing benefits in several areas at once.
• Scales to more than 1,612 TB effective capacity per cluster
• Inherently load balances data for maximum performance
• Provides writeable snapshots with space efficiency and zero
• Delivers truly inline, always-on data deduplication to reduce
capacity needs and TCO
• Enables operational and disaster recovery using native
replication with EMC RecoverPoint
• Includes XtremIO Data Protection (XDP): more resilient and
lower overhead than legacy RAID
• EMC XtremIO Xpect More Program: Lock in Premium Support

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN AN
ALL-FLASH STORAGE SOLUTION
Flash arrays are not
all created equal. Even features that sound identical can have vastly different capabilities. When considering ﬂash
storage products, be sure to consider the following exclusive EMC XtremIO
Linear Scale- Out Architecture
Recycling previous designs and software
doesn’t unlock the true potential of ﬂash.
MLC ﬂash capacity is far less expensive, but requires specific wear-abatement measures
to achieve enterprise-grade longevity.
Flash performance quickly bottlenecks any dual-controller design.
Maintaining service and data availability at all times.
Minimizes system cost by reducing the amount
of ﬂash needed. Real-time data reduction
delivers consistent performance and fewer
ﬂash write cycles by eliminating background processing. Global data reduction works across
all configured volumes and capacity in the array.
Along with scale-out, allows capacity purchases to be deferred until time of need. Granularity avoids over allocation of space.
Allows creation of instantaneous, high-performance volume clones that do not
consume additional ﬂash capacity.
Provides faster rebuilds, superior
performance, lower capacity overhead, better
data protection, and greater ﬂash endurance
Allows the array to offload and accelerate several common provisioning tasks.
Having a global organization stand behind the product.
XtremIO arrays are 100% ﬂash specific, yielding new levels of performance and functionality.
Architecture addresses MLC ﬂash endurance through data reduction, inherent wear leveling,
and efficient algorithms and throughout the array.
Performance and capacity always scale together to any desired level. No performance bottlenecks.
XtremIO arrays are N-way active and fully fault-tolerant with no single points of failure.
The only ﬂash array with true inline, always-on, global data reduction. Only unique data is placed on arrays, reducing capacity requirements and increasing endurance. Data reduction is never switched off or post-processed. Performance improves as data reduction rates increase.
XtremIO arrays only allocate capacity when data is written, and always match the allocation perfectly to host and operating system demands.
Array-based copy services are completely flexible. Snapshots and clones can achieve the same performance as their parent volumes.
Only XtremIO implements ﬂash-speciﬁc data protection that is not rooted in disk-based RAID algorithms.
The only all-ﬂash array with complete deduplication enhanced VAAI support allowing instant VM clones rapid provisioning.
As part of EMC, XtremIO is fully
field supported and there is no
“startup vendor risk”.
