Modular, Scalable Hardware Platform
With flash for the price of disk1, optimize performance and cost savings for your data-intensive workloads. Unlike network storage systems that require organizations to rip and replace hardware as business needs change, Dell Compellent enterprise storage uses standards-based hardware and supports new technologies on a single, modular storage platform. Administrators can mix the latest SSD, FC and SAS drives and enclosures in the same system, as well as use a range of front-end interconnects, including 16Gb Fibre Channel, 10Gb iSCSI and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE).
Fully redundant hardware components and advanced failover features ensure no single point of failure for high data availability. Adding automated tiered storage software increases efficiency and performance by keeping highly active data on high-performance storage such as the flash-optimized SC220 solution, and placing less active data on high-capacity hard drives on the SC220, SC200 or the ultradense SC280 enclosures, all within a single array. You can scale up and out on demand, changing network hardware configurations as needed to take advantage of emerging technologies and accommodate constant change.
