Dell today announced Dell Storage SCv2000 Series, an entry-level storage offering, to assist business to scale their data centers.
Alan Atkinson, vice president and general manager, Dell Storage, said: “The Dell Storage SCv2000 Series brings the performance and protection of our Dell SC Series arrays to an entry-level offering with value at a very disruptive price.”
The starting price of Dell Storage SCv2000 Series is nearly $14,000 per array.
Data protection features, RAID tiering to optimize capacity, thin provisioning, flash support, data-migration services, and multi-protocol connectivity are some of the features of Dell Storage SCv2000 Series. Data protection allows up to 2,000 snapshots and 500 replications.
Integration with common application environments, such as Microsoft and VMware, simplifies virtualized data centers, allowing local and remote data protection features to take consistent snapshots of virtual machines without sacrificing performance.
The SCv2000 Series supports today’s needs and future growth as the arrays can be managed with the same, single user interface as other SC Series arrays. Customers can scale capacity when needed with the benefit of no capacity licensing and choose from a range of hard drives and SSDs, configured for a variety of applications.
The new Dell storage PS Series arrays for large data repositories offers 3.5x capacity and up to 7x performance improvements.
Performance of the new dual-controller arrays include 3.5 times the capacity and up to 7 times the performance compared to the previous generation Dell EqualLogic PS6510 arrays to help customers store more data and access it more quickly.
The PS6610 Series arrays, offering hybrid flash and hard disk drive configurations, support critical business applications and are ideal for customers with large data repository requirements. They combine the power of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and dense storage, offering the ability to support half a petabyte of capacity in a single 5U array.
Dell also announced Dell Storage with Microsoft Storage Spaces, designed to support Microsoft’s SDS capabilities on Dell’s enterprise-class server and direct attached storage hardware.
