The VNX7500 is designed for the enterprise space. This model provides either block and file services, file only, or block only and uses a SPE form factor. This model uses a 2.8 GHz, six-core Xeon 5600 processor with 24 or 48 GB RAM per blade and a maximum of 1,000 drives with the following host connectivity options: FC, iSCSI, and FCoE.

The VNX7500 has a SPE that uses UltraFlex I/O slots for all connectivity. The first slot houses the internal network management switch, which includes a mini-serial port and service LAN port. EMC service personnel use these ports to connect to the VNX. A LAN connection is available on each SP for array management. Each SP in the enclosure also has two power supply modules. Each SP has a maximum of five I/O module slots.

Any slots without I/O modules populate with blanks (to ensure proper airflow). The fault/status light of the SPE form factor is located on the front of the unit. This form factor requires an additional DAE to provide a minimum of four drives for the VNX Array Operating Environment. This model's form factor favors scalability, rather than density, requiring slightly more rack space for a minimal configuration.

The front of the SPE houses the power supplies, cooling fans, and CPU modules, along with the fault/status LED. The blades in this model use a 2.8 GHz, six-core Xeon 5600 processor with 24 GB RAM per blade, with a maximum storage capacity of 256 TB per blade with a maximum of eight blades, and supports the following NAS protocol options: NFS, CIFS, and pNFS.

Each blade has redundant power supplies located in the front of each blade. The CPU module is also accessible via the front of each blade after removing the power supplies.

The rear of each blade houses the slots used for internal/external network connectivity, backend fiber connectivity, and frontend connectivity options. The DME can house two blades per 2U enclosure, and each blade on this model can accept a maximum of four I/O modules for frontend connectivity.
