Enterprise-class features in our most affordable entry-level SAN/DAS storage array

Purpose-built and optimized for SAN/DAS

The affordable, simple, and fast Dell EMC PowerVault ME4 Series SAN/DAS Storage Series is optimized to run a variety of mixed workload applications – physical and virtual – for small businesses.

Whether you need to consolidate your block storage, support the demands of data-intensive applications, take advantage of intelligent data management, or optimize your virtual environments, the ME4

Series has been designed to meet your growing business needs. The flexibility of the ME4 Series lets you decide the protocol, supports a wide range of mixed drive types, scales to 4PB raw, is highly aligned with Dell PowerEdge Servers, and is delivered to you with all-inclusive software – everything you’ll need to store, manage, and protect your data.

Powerful entry storage architecture

Based on the family of Intel “Broadwell-DE” processors, Dell EMC PowerVault ME4 Series storage implements a block architecture with VMware virtualization integration and concurrent support for native iSCSI, Fibre Channel, and SAS protocols. Each system leverages dual storage processors (single storage processor systems are available) and a full 12Gb SAS back-end.

Additional storage capacity is added via Disk Array Enclosures (DAEs) while Distributed RAID (ADAPT) delivers faster drive re-build times and lowers opex. And all ME4 Series arrays are managed by an integrated HTML5 web-based GUI.

PowerVault ME4 Series Base System and Expansion Models

The two non-dense ME4 base arrays start at 2U and the dense ME4 array starts at 5U. Both models include dual controllers with Dual-core Intel Xeon processors, 8GB per controller and 4x10Gb iSCSI, 4x12Gb SAS, and 4x16Gb FC network connections (auto-negotiation supported on iSCSI and FC).

Optional ME4 Series expansion enclosures let you scale up to 336 drives or 4PB. PowerVault ME412 and ME424 expansion enclosures can only be used with either ME4012 or ME4024 base arrays.

The ME484 dense expansion enclosure is supported behind any ME4 base array. All array and expansion enclosure models support a variety of SSD, 15K, 10K and NLSAS drives (including FIPS- certified SEDs)
