All-inclusive Software Innovation
PowerVault ME4 storage arrays deliver all the software you’ll need to store, manage and protect your data:


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 ME4 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 & Performance


PowerVault ME Series storage is simple, fast, and affordable. With dual core Intel Broadwell processors, active-active controllers, more drives and a faster back end, ME Series storage delivers:


  • Up to 320K IOPs performance
  • Up to 5500 MB/sec bandwidth
  • Up to 4PB capacity (Use HDDs to 4PB in three 5U 84 drive dense enclosures)
  • Up to 4PB capacity (Use HDDs to 4PB in three 5U 84 drive dense enclosures)

The ME4 Series base models include dual hot-swappable Intel controllers, iSCSI, Fibre Channel, and SAS protocols, support for 2U and 5U expansion enclosure options. Implement the PowerVault ME Series as shared SAN storage or direct attach them to Dell PowerEdge Servers.

PowerVault Manager
This web-based management GUI simplifies ME4 configuration tasks, alerts you to problems and provides a recovery guru to automatically help troubleshoot and resolve issues.

VMware vCenter Plug-In 6.7
Monitor, manage, provision and optimize storage for performance and availability across your virtual infrastructure. You can also implement Storage Replication Adapters (SRA) to simplify management of disaster recovery with centralized recovery plans.


Speed Recovery with ADAPT Software
PowerVault ME4 Series ADAPT software protects data by dynamically distributing it across pools of drives. In the event of a drive failure, ADAPT will identify the critical data and dynamically rebalance the data so the array can return to an optimal state faster than it would in the typical RAID environment.

Saves time and money
Faster drive rebuilds
Add just the capacity you need
Supports up to 1PB capacity or up to 128 drives
