Comprehensive enterprise-grade features

PowerVault ME5 storage arrays provide the software you need to store, manage and protect your data:

ADAPT (Distributed RAID): Improved data protection for faster drive rebuilds
Thin provisioning: Allocate and use physical storage capacity in disk pools as needed
Snapshots: Easily recover data with point-in-time copies
Replication: Replicate data to any global location and PowerVault ME storage system
Volume Replication: Enables seamless volume relocation and disk-based backup and recovery
SSD Read Cache: Improve application execution speed by caching previously read data
Level 3 Auto-Tiering: Optimize data performance and reduce costs
Virtualization integration: Integrate ME5 arrays with VMware vSphere, vCenter SRM and Microsoft Hyper-V
Optimized for SAN and DAS

PowerVault ME5 is purpose-built and optimized for SAN and DAS workloads. Connect PowerVault ME5 to Dell PowerEdge servers to solve server capacity expansion challenges, or connect it to a SAN for flexibility and scalability, ensuring business applications always have fast and reliable access to data without compromising performance.

Connect directly to Dell PowerEdge servers
Consolidate SAN storage
Protect your data

Keep your valuable information safe with these PowerVault ME5 features:

Replication: Replicate data to any global location, supporting mirroring and thin provisioning pools.
Snapshots: Utilizing point-in-time copies of your data, accidentally deleted or changed files can be easily recovered.
Virtual Disk Copy (VDC): Enables fast, seamless virtual disk migration and disk-based backup and recovery with full replication of source data.
Self-Encrypting Drives (SED): With drive-level encryption, data cannot be used by unauthorized users even after the drive has been removed from the enclosure.
Higher performance and larger capacity
PowerVault ME5 features faster Intel® Xeon® processors, dual-active controllers, and a powerful operating environment to deliver:

Up to 640K IOPs performance
12 GB/s sequential read and 10 GB/s sequential write throughput
Up to 6.0 PB capacity
12Gb SAS backend for rapid capacity expansion
ME5 firmware supports up to 8 PB, demonstrating higher drive capacity
PowerVault ME5 is easy to navigate and configure, and can be easily provisioned and managed from anywhere via an intelligent, web-based HTML5 GUI. PowerVault Manager also helps alert you to problem identification, allowing you to identify and resolve problems faster.

CloudIQ Storage Analytics
CloudIQ is Dell's cloud-based AIOps application that uses telemetry, machine learning, and predictive analytics to provide PowerVault ME5 proactive health notifications, remediation recommendations, capacity predictions, reclaimable storage identification, and more. CloudIQ is included with Dell ProSupport and ProSupport Plus services for Dell infrastructure systems at no additional cost.

Speed up data recovery with ADAPT
PowerVault ME5 ADAPT software protects data by dynamically allocating it across drive pools. In the event of a drive failure, ADAPT will identify critical data and dynamically rebalance the data so that the array can return to optimal condition faster than in a typical RAID environment.
Save time and money
Rebuild drives faster
Supports up to 1 PB capacity or up to 128 drives
