Dell EMC has updated its PowerFlex software, widening GPU and hypervisor support and improving resiliency and manageability.
PowerFlex is Dell EMC’s scale-out virtual SAN and hyper-converged system with multi-hypervisor support, unlike VxRail’s vSphere-only focus. It’s available in rack or appliance formats, and scales out to thousands of nodes. The system was launched a year ago as a ScaleIO upgrade and rebrand.
Michael Richtberg, a Dell EMC Chief Strategy Architect, said in a blog we saw before its publication: “The release is designed to help you execute flawlessly with extensive automation capabilities and superior execution of resource-intensive workloads. It also enables you to comply with regulatory, compliance and corporate requirements while enabling you to operate your large-scale infrastructure confidently and predictably.”

Version 3.6 also has a preview of coming Dell EMC Container Storage Modules (CSM):
This release improves the configurable replication RPO (recovery point objectives) time to as low as 15 seconds, while extending the replication to Hyperconverged (HCI) nodes and configurations.
