Solution Overview
Dell EMC Unity XT delivers a full block and file unified environment in a single 2U enclosure. Use the same Pool to provision and host LUNs, Consistency Groups, NAS Servers, File Systems, and Virtual Volumes. The Unisphere management interface offers a consistent look and feel whether you are managing block resources, file resources or both. 

New to the platform is a NVMe ready architecture for future proofing your investment with a simple non-disruptive upgrade. Data reduction also gets a boost with not only compression but also advanced deduplication and improved software algorithms. 

Goals & Objectives

The goal of this lab is to provide hands on access to Unisphere for Unity XT's HTML 5 GUI. Users will be able to explore the new wizard based interface to provision storage as well as review system performance and test the latest features.
