Who wouldn’t want to have a product coming from a leading brand? From a brand that has proven many things through its products through the years. In the technology industry, Dell is one of the brands that would come first on our minds.
Dell is now the top choice among IT leaders for enterprise flash deployments according to an ITIC/ Storage Strategies nowvey of 550 IT global leaders. Dell was selected as top overall vendor of choice for organizations using or planning to deploy flash/SSD technologies. Dell changes the economics of flash by shipping its new all-flash storage solution costing less than a comparable 15K disk drive solution.
Today, October 17, 2013, Dell announced it once again, they are bringing something new to the economics of the data center. They are now offering better storage performance as it begins to ship the new Dell Flash-optimized Solutions and dense storage enclosure. Before, due to the cost of high-performance flash and supporting storage environments, businesses weren’t able to provide better offers for their customer, but Dell has finally made it possible.
“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 Sumir Bhatia, Enterprise Solutions director for South Asia, Dell. “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 Solutions offer the industry’s first product in its class with intelligent and amazingdata tiering across multiple types of flash technologies or in combination with traditional drives.3 Dell’s ground-breaking 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 is affordable and will surely be chosen over any other. It is cheaper than a comparable 15K disk drive solution, yet better.
Dell Compellent Storage Center 6.4, offers advanced features and is very available and afforable. This offers a very high quality flash (SLC) drives. Eventually, as time runs, it will automatically move to a second tier of lower-cost, higher-capacity flash (MLC) drives, and finally to low-cost, capacity-based hard disks.
Here are the features from Dell Compellent that will make you like it even more:
· 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
“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.”
It has the capacity of 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.
This is exactly why Dell is undeniably one of the popular brands when it comes to technology industry, not just that, Dell is the top choice. Dell is now giving you an offer, a product that no one can resist. Dell is indeed competitive.
