The Dell EMC Symmetrix VMAX is the continuation of Dell EMC’s Symmetrix high end storage system series and the successor to the Symmetrix DMX series. The VMAX is powered by the Enginuity firmware enabling a high-end functionality enterprise class storage array, which is based on Dell EMC’s Virtual Matrix architecture. The VMAX supports IBM mainframe environments (except for the 10K model), open systems, and IBM System i.

The VMAX series includes three models that differ in configuration and scale: the 10K, 20K and the 40K. The 10K replaces the entry level system VMAXe system.
