“More is less” with ultra-dense arrays

Faced with massive data growth, static budgets and limited floor space, organizations are turning to high-capacity and high-performing, ultra-dense storage solutions. “More is less” is actually a good thing when Dell can help you store more data in less space with ultra-dense arrays that provide massive capacity while minimizing footprints and costs.

Until recently, it was primarily medical, finance and media/entertainment companies that required secondary storage and archival options. Today, many industries are implementing dense arrays for use cases like big data analytics, video surveillance and workload consolidation to lower costs of primary storage while improving application performance and preserving critical information.

Dell Storage dense arrays have enterprise features like compression for capacity optimization, and automated tiering and load balancing that can improve performance in the data center.* Dell offers three different dense storage solutions with multiple disk options, including flash SSDs so organizations can address specific performance and capacity requirements.

The new Dell Storage SCv2080 is an outstanding entry-level multiprotocol array for small and midsize businesses with a balance of low price-per-terabyte and performance that can be coupled with a Dell Storage SC180 expansion enclosure. For easy-to-manage, scale-out iSCSI storage, customers should consider the new Dell Storage PS6610 Series with the industry-leading capabilities of the EqualLogic line. Tailored to the needs of larger data centers, the Dell Compellent SC280 dense enclosure provides cost-effective expansion of high-performance SC arrays in an intelligent auto-tiering environment.
