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

Both PowerMax storage arrays have, at their foundation, the trusted Dynamic Virtual Matrix architecture and a new version of HYPERMAX OS management software—PowerMaxOS 5978—that has been rewritten for the non-volatile memory express (NVMe) platform. PowerMaxOS can run natively on both PowerMax storage arrays and on legacy VMAX All Flash systems as an upgrade. PowerMax storage arrays are true all-flash arrays, specifically targeted to meet the storage capacity and performance requirements of the all-flash enterprise data center.
