Unify block and file data with dynamic, scale-out NAS
Unify block and file data with dynamic, scale-out network attached storage (NAS) with Dell’s Fluid File System (FluidFS) on the Compellent FS8600. A fully virtualized, clustered file system, FluidFS avoids the architectural limitations of traditional file systems by scaling performance and capacity independently while maintaining industry-leading TCO.
Dell announced the latest enhancements to FluidFS on June 5th 2013, at Dell Enterprise Forum San Jose. Available first on the Compellent FS8600 in the latter half of 2013, FluidFS v3 promises to increase the efficiencies of the file storage environment with features like industry-leading Fluid Data Reduction and enhanced file protocol support while scaling up to 2PB in a single namespace1.
