Anyone who’s seen the Star Wars movies knows that Han Solo’s run-down freighter, the Millennium Falcon, was acquired through a bet and made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. Only true Star Wars buffs who dug deep into the lore or attended convensions dressed as a Wookie knew what that meant, at least until Solo: A Star Wars Story hit theaters nationwide. This solo movie focuses on Solo the no-good smuggler, Chewbacca, Lando, and an annoying droid that gets blown to pieces, creating an entire movie from a few lines of dialogue scattered throughout the original trilogy.
The star of that story is really the Millennium Falcon, an unassuming-looking ship that’s crazy fast. That’s not too dissimilar from Dell EMC’s PowerMax flash storage array. Tucked behind that simple gray, honeycomb exterior is a storage engine that could fly circles around the Falcon. The PowerMax runs end-to-end NVMe and real-time machine learning, boasting 10 Million IOPS, 150GB/second bandwidth, and 50% lower latency than comparable SAS arrays. There’s no Wookie inside, trading that for Intel instead.
