Dell EMC Unity XT Hardware Overview and System Configuration Video

by Brian Beeler

The Dell EMC Unity XT storage array is the tip of the Dell EMC midrange storage spear. With a big boost in performance over the prior generation Unity arrays, the XT can deliver over 2.5 million IOPS and support 16PB in the top end configuration. Our particular model in for review is the Unity XT 480F, with the F standing for all-flash. In this video we do a detailed hardware overview of the system, highlighting the drives, I/O modules and what’s inside each controller. The second portion of the video walks through the Unity XT configuration wizard in Unisphere and ultimately the setup of a datastore for VMware vSphere.
