One All-Flash storage solution platform can’t address every workload requirement. To satisfy a wide spectrum of modern storage needs, IDC recommends Dell EMC’s broad flash portfolio. Here are just four examples:
Dell EMC SC Series provides low-cost, flash-enhanced storage that supports hybrid deployments, including a mix of flash and spinning disk, a mix of data services, and mixed-workload consolidations for small to medium-size distributed environments. The SC Series includes auto-tiering, inline compression, and deduplication backed by a 4:1 data reduction guarantee.
Dell EMC Unity delivers higher performance and scalability, and can consolidate latency-sensitive mixed block and file workloads. In addition to many SC Series features, Dell EMC Unity offers deep VMware/Microsoft/OpenStack integration, tiering to the cloud and cloud-based predictive analytics through CloudIQ. You can buy it as an All-Flash, hybrid or software-only appliance.
The Dell EMC VMAX All Flash platform delivers 99.9999% availability,1 making it a great choice for mission-critical and persistent workloads. VMAX All Flash supports a complete range of enterprise-class data services and consolidation of open systems, such as Oracle, SQL, SAP, mainframes and IBM iSeries workloads on a single platform.
Isilon, a scale-out NAS platform, offers massive scalability for demanding unstructured data and file workloads without downtime, manual data migration or application-logic reconfiguration. Target workloads include digital media, electronic design automation, life sciences and enterprise data lakes.
Flash costs are expected to drop 26% by 2020, making it desirable for a wide variety of modern workloads. Choose the right arrays for your workloads — from general-purpose to highly scalable, enterprise-class All-Flash platforms — from the Dell EMC portfolio. Accelerate your IT Transformation with cutting-edge Dell EMC technologies powered by Intel® Xeon® processors.
