Help Your Customers Focus on Their Data

Dell EMC ECS 3.3 software upgrade helps customers unlock value – and helps you protect your revenue and boost your business

Sometimes – in business as well as in life – we put too much emphasis on the wrong thing.

Technology is a case in point. It can deliver all kinds of benefits in terms of costs, simplicity and accessibility. But technology is only part of the story – what truly counts is the message – and that’s information.

The information challenge

Deriving value from that information can be a real challenge. As we all know, there is a great deal of information, and it’s growing at a breathtaking pace. In addition, a large amount of it is unstructured. Much of it is siloed, too.

For all these reasons and more, it’s hard to harness the data available, and use it as the foundation of the digital business. If you also factor in the data security and compliance considerations, it’s no wonder many organizations are finding the management of, and access to, their information such a burden.

Dell EMC ECS Gen 3.3: Help customers focus on the right thing

Dell EMC’s ECS storage environment is designed to help your customers focus on the right thing. This software-defined, cloud-scale, object storage platform takes advantage of the benefits of the cloud, but also takes it one step further by building IT infrastructure centered around what matters most – their data.

The latest software announcement – Generation 3.3 – delivers significant enhancements, including:

  • Enterprise-readiness: Improve data protection and compliance mandates in the age of evolving security needs
  • Improved ROI: Customers get a 12% improvement in storage costs that is up to 59.5% lower TCO than the public cloud
