The following Dell EMC VNX models are reaching/have reached end of life (EOL) on 12/2019:

  • VNX5100
  • VNX5300
  • VNX5500
  • VNX5700
  • VNX7500

The three most popular here at Vertical Enterprise are the VNX5500, VNX5700 and VNX7500.

The most requested item we have that is compatible with these models is the VNX6GSDAE15 – Dell EMC 3.5 inch 15 Slot VNX Disk Array Enclosure.

(Find specs on the VNX 6GS DAE 15 here: https://vertical-enterprise.com/store/vnx6gsdae15-dell-emc-35-inch-15-slot-vnx-disk-array-enclosure-dae-vnx5500-vnx5700-vnx7500/)

So, we thought we would put together a list of other items that are compatible with the VNX5500, VNX5700 and VNX7500 and show their similarities and differences.

All of the part numbers in this list are available at Vertical Enterprise, and we would love to help you with them.
