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)

Dell Addresses High Performance and Low Cost Storage in One Solution

While performance-intensive applications benefit from flash performance, the rapid growth of unstructured data, such as audio, video and image files, has led to a demand for the most cost-effective ways to keep large amounts of data online and accessible. Dell today also is shipping the Dell Compellent SC280 dense enclosure, which offers the best rack unit density of any major storage solution with up to 2.8 times more capacity than competing 2U 3.5” disk drive enclosures.

The Dell Compellent SC280 can be used in one solution that tiers data from high-performance flash drives down to high-capacity, cost-optimized storage within a single Dell Compellent array. With this combination, addressing both ends of the storage spectrum, IT leaders can now cost-efficiently support business goals, deliver better data insights, and devote more resources to developing new innovations and services for priorities such as attracting and retaining customers.

With capacity of up to 336 terabytes of hard drives in a 5U enclosure, the dense enclosure maximizes floor space and creates an all-in-one, fast-write, bulk storage solution for co-location environments or file workflows, such as radiology, life sciences and media archival.

Additional Quotes:

“Dell has put together an impressive array of SSD/Flash options covering the end-to-end of its server and storage product lines,” said Deni Connor, founding analyst for Storage Strategies NOW. “Designation of an SLC Tier and an MLC Tier in the Dell Compellent Storage Center is a unique concept and allows tuning of hardware for a given workload at a new level of granularity. The new density enhancements also add immense value for keeping large amounts of data online as data center footprints become more and more expensive.”

“Dell has looked beyond the current state of the market and refuses to implement flash technology in the same manner of its contemporaries,” said Rick Gouin, CTO of Winslow Technology Group. “By tiering with lower cost read-intensive drives in an intelligent way, Dell can offer larger pools of flash storage without compromising on performance or cost. This delivers the best of both worlds for customers today while the Dell Compellent architecture is fully prepared for a future when flash drive technology moves towards greater cost parity with spinning disk.”
