General product family overview:

The XtremIO Storage Array from Dell EMC is an all-flash system that leverages a scale-out architecture. The system is built via building blocks, called X-Bricks, which are SAN appliances that can be clustered together to grow performance and capacity as required. The Dell EMC XIOS operating system balances data across all solid-state arrays and supports features such as deduplication, compression, and snapshots. The all-flash architecture is viable for use cases including virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI), server environments, or database and analytics workloads.
