Dell EMC vnx 5300 – NAS Server Storage

VNX-000565 NAS Server Storage selling at $9500, super good deal.

The EMC VNX series implements a modular architecture that integrates hardware
components for Block, File, and Object with concurrent support for native NAS,
iSCSI, Fiber Channel, and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocols. The VNX
series is based on Intel® Xeon®-based PCI Express 2.0 processors and delivers File
(NAS) functionality via two to eight Data Movers and Block (iSCSI, FCoE, and FC)
storage via dual storage processors using a full 6-Gb/s SAS disk drive topology.
This guide describes one of five models available in the VNX series, the VNX5300.
The VNX5300 is a mid-range/entry level storage platform. It offers Block services,
File services, or Unified Block and File services.

Dell EMC VNX 5300 SERVER Storage

The VNX5300 is an entry-level to mid-tier storage system which can be either a block or unified (file and block) system. The predecessor to the VNX 5300 is the CX4-120 and the NS-120. The 5300 uses the DPE form factor in either a 15 drive, 3.5” 3U form factor or a 25 drive, 2.5” 2 U form factor.

A CPU module with an Intel Xeon 4-core 1.66-GHz processor with three
Double Data Rate Three (DDR3) synchronous dynamic RAM (SDRAM)
slots supporting 4-GB SDRAM
– Four integrated 8-Gb/s FC ports (labeled 2, 3, 4, and 5; supporting 2, 4, and
8 Gb/s having front end auto-negotiation with support for manual
– Two integrated four lane 6-Gb/s SAS x4 ports (labeled 0 x4 and 1 x4);
supported speeds are 1.5, 3, and 6 Gb/s
– Two PCI Gen 2 x4 I/O module slots supporting a combination of the
following UltraFlex™ I/O modules:
Two-port 10-Gb/s optical or active Twinax4 (w/iSCSI protocol)

Dell EMC VNX 5300 SERVER Storage Hardware features

Contained in a 7 to 8U architecture, the Block and File VNX5300 platform weighs
approximately 206.7 lb (93.76 kg) to 229.7 lb (104.19 kg) fully loaded3 depending on
the type of disk drives used in the DPE. With the DME having the deepest dimension
within the cabinet, the Block and File VNX5300 measures 12.25 to 14 inches (7 to 8U)
high x 18.92 inches wide x 24.25 inches deep (31.11 cm to 35.56 cm x 48.05 cm x 61.59
cm). Between the front and rear of the enclosure, a midplane distributes power and
signals to all the enclosure components. The CPU modules and the power supply
modules plug directly into the midplane connections.
