Dell Is The Number One Preferred Vendor For Enterprise Flash Storage Deployments According To An Independent Study Of More Than 550 Global IT Leaders From Analyst Group Storage Strategies NOW. (Graphic: Business Wire)

Stocks in this article: DELL

Dell today announced it once again is redefining the economics of the data center and has been selected as the top choice among IT leaders for enterprise flash deployments. 1 Dell now offers customers better cost for storage performance as it begins to ship the new Dell Flash-optimized Solutions and dense storage enclosure. Dell’s breakthrough approach is designed to unlock customers’ greater business potential that has been limited due to the cost of high-performance flash and supporting storage environments.

Besting EMC, HP, IBM, NetApp and others by six or more percentage points, Dell is the top choice among IT leaders who have selected it as the leading vendor for deploying flash/SSDs. The results, according to an ITIC/Storage Strategies NOW survey of more than 550 global IT leaders, also show that 32 percent of respondents currently use or have definitive plans to deploy flash/SSD technologies. 1

“The adoption of performance-intensive applications for big data analytics and process transactions provides organizations the opportunity to operate faster, make better informed decisions and improve customer service, but meeting the performance demands can be costly,” said Alan Atkinson, vice president and co-general manager, Dell Storage. “Dell is the only major vendor that has found a way to offer all-flash solutions at the economics of disk. Dell’s practical approach integrates flash into a fully-functional storage array and uses enterprise storage features, like tiering, replication and management, to support high-performance data demands while also offering a new level of cost-efficient density. We see this as a game-changing approach for customers and the industry.”

Dell Changes the Economics of Enterprise Flash Storage

Dell Compellent Flash-optimized Solution s offer the industry’s first product in its class with intelligent data tiering across multiple types of flash technologies or in combination with traditional drives. 3 Dell’s groundbreaking approach allows customers to place all hot data for IOPS-hungry applications such as Oracle, SQL, SAP, VDI, big data and private cloud deployments on flash in order to process more transactions faster while lowering the overall costs to be comparable with traditional disk storage.

The Dell Compellent all-flash solution costs less than a comparable 15K disk drive solution, 2 benefiting from enhanced automated tiering capabilities with built-in, highly granular intelligence that automatically tiers data and optimizes performance.

With this advanced feature of Dell Compellent Storage Center 6.4, available at no additional cost for customers with active contracts, the Dell Flash-optimized Solutions first writes data to high-performance, high-reliability flash (SLC) drives. As data ages, it is automatically moved to a second tier of lower-cost, higher-capacity flash (MLC) drives, and finally to low-cost, capacity-based hard disks. This tiered approach, combining different levels of flash with traditional disk-based storage, offers cost reductions up to 80 percent compared to all-flash arrays that don’t similarly optimize for cost or performance. 4

The Dell Compellent Flash-optimized Solutions supports high performance and data-intensive workloads with full enterprise-class features, and when tiering among dual flash drive types and spinning disks, organizations can achieve:

  • Smaller footprints – Reducing rack space by up to 84 percent
  • Improved performance – Reducing latency by up to 90 percent
  • Reduced costs – Reducing the solution cost by approximately 56 percent compared to traditional spinning arrays. 5

“As a market leader in enterprise cloud services, we have stayed ahead of the curve and experienced tremendous growth globally by working closely with partners such as Dell. Compellent storage has played a critical role in helping us to meet the stringent SLA requirements the enterprise market demands,” said Dante Orsini, senior vice president, business development, Houston-based iland. “For our customers running database software and other performance-intensive applications, the Compellent Flash-optimized solution enables us to quickly support these demands in the most cost-effective manner, which is a key part of our winning formula for anticipating the rapidly changing needs of our customers in today’s dynamic environment.”
