The Dell EMC PowerMax family consists of two models, as shown in the following figure:

Both PowerMax storage systems have, at their foundation, the trusted Dynamic Virtual Matrix architecture and a new version of HYPERMAX OS management software, rewritten for the NVMe platform, called PowerMaxOS 5978. PowerMaxOS can run natively on both PowerMax storage systems and on legacy VMAX All Flash systems as an upgrade. PowerMax storage systems are specifically targeted to meet the storage capacity and performance requirements of the enterprise data center.
