Get affordable enterprise-level capabilities
PowerVault ME4 Series storage arrays deliver all the software you’ll need to store, manage, and protect your data:

  • Adapt (Distributed RAID): Improved data protection functionality that delivers faster drive rebuild times
  • Thin Provisioning: Allocate and consume physical storage capacity as needed in disk pools
  • Snapshots: Easily recover data with point-in-time copies
  • Replication: Replicate data to any global location
  • Volume Copy: Enables seamless volume relocation and disk-based backup and recovery
  • SSD Read Cache: Increase execution speed of applications by caching previously read data
  • 3-Level Auto-tiering: Optimizes data performance with less expense
  • Virtualization integration: Integrate ME4 arrays with Microsoft Hyper-V

Optimized for SAN and DAS
PowerVault ME4 Series is purpose-built and optimized for SAN and DAS virtualized workloads. Connecting the PowerVault ME4 Series to a Dell PowerEdge Server to address the challenges of server capacity expansion or to a SAN for flexibility and scalability ensures that business applications will always get high-speed and reliable access to their data – without compromise.

  • Direct-attach to Dell PowerEdge Servers over SAS, FC, or iSCSI
  • Consolidate SAN storage through a single port over FC or iSCSI

Protect your data
Keep your valuable information safe with these PowerVault ME Series features:

  • Remote Replication: Replicate data to any global location that includes mirroring thin provisioned pools
  • Snapshots: Easily recover files after accidental deletion or alteration with point-in-time copies of data
  • Virtual Disk Copy (VDC): Enable quick and seamless virtual disk relocation and disk-based backup and recovery with a full, replicated copy of source data
  • Self-encrypting drives (SEDs): Render data useless to unauthorized users with drive-level encryption, even if the drive has been removed from the enclosure

Improved hardware and performance
Designed as the next-generation successor to the popular PowerVault MD3 array, PowerVault ME Series storage is simpler, faster, and as affordable. With dual core Intel Broadwell processors, active-active controllers, more drives and a faster back end, ME Series storage delivers:
