EMC Broadens Its Xtrem Family of Server & Storage Products

The server Flash hardware can be deployed either as direct attached storage or in combination with server caching software to boost network storage array performance.

IT storage giant EMC Corp. has announced its EMC Xtrem family of Flash-optimized server and storage products and also introduced a new line of EMC XtremSF PCIe-based Flash cards designed to accelerate application performance.

XtremSF is server Flash hardware, available in eMLC and SLC capacities. It can be deployed as either direct attached storage (DAS) that sits within the server, or it can be deployed in combination with EMC XtremSW Cache (formerly EMC VFCache) server caching software to boost network storage array performance.

XtremSF joins EMC’s growing portfolio of Flash products, which include Flash-optimized hybrid storage arrays – EMC Isilon, EMC VMAX and EMC VNX as well as the EMC XtremIO (formerly Project X) all-Flash storage array.

“We are delivering a comprehensive portfolio of Flash solutions across a variety of customer use cases and requirements,” says Zahid Hussain, EMC’s senior vice president and general manager, Flash products. “Going forward, we are dedicated to providing increased value through flash-optimized software and systems to break the barriers of today’s infrastructure silos.”

Xtreme IO Release

EMC also announced this month the release of XtremIO to select customers. XtremIO is built to leverage Flash and deliver performance, ease, and advanced data services. Its†scale-out architecture†delivers “functional IOPS” to applications that require high levels of random†I/O performance, such as OLTP databases, server virtualization, and VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure).

XtremSF Technology

The XtremSF Family of server-based PCIe Flash cards offer SMBs:

  • Performance—The†XtremSF Flash devices are designed to deliver 1.13 million IOPS in a standard form factor.
  • Flexibility—Available in a broad range of eMLC (550 GB and 2.2 TB) and SLC (350 GB and 700 GB) capacities, the XtremSF can be deployed with XtremSW Cache intelligent server Flash caching software for a caching device for accelerated performance with array protection for such applications as Oracle, Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange.
  • Efficiency—All XtremSF products, including the 2.2TB offering, are standard half-height, half-length 25w PCIe cards, providing the highest storage capacity in the smallest footprint for performance, density, and low power consumption.


XtremSF 550 GB and 2.2 TB eMLC capacities are currently available globally. EMC expects to make 700 GB and 1.4 TB capacities available on EMC price lists in the second quarter of 2013.
