EMC has introduced a high-end line of Symmetrix storage products based on a building block design that can start small and scale up to support the largest virtual data center infrastructures, aiming to do for storage what VMware has done for enterprise servers.

EMC's new Symmetrix V-Max and V-Max SE storage arrays are based on a Virtual Matrix Architecture that EMC said can scale up to hundreds of thousands of terabytes of storage, and is capable of supporting hundreds of thousands of virtual machines.

V-Max and V-Max SE are designed for large enterprise data centers and server virtualization deployments in which storage workloads must adapt to changing demand and must be moved between various storage platforms. The V-Max product line also includes Fully Automated Storage Tiering (FAST), the ability to automatically tier data based on real-time user access requirements, its life cycle, regulatory compliance and disaster recovery needs, EMC says.
