Dell EMC VMAX is a family of All Flash storage engineered to support mission-critical workloads with high performance and massive capacity needs. Turbonomic connects to VMAX storage systems via an EMC SMI-S provider to discover the VMAX volumes, storage resource pools, storage groups, and arrays. It stitches these storage entities to the rest of your application and infrastructure stack. The resource relationships between storage and the mission-critical applications it supports is no longer a black box. Moreover, Turbonomic provides specific actions to ensure that those applications get exactly what they need, when they need it. Storage is never wasted and it will never be the cause of performance degradation.
