Modular, Scalable Hardware Platform
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 utilize 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. Users can scale up and out on demand, changing network hardware configurations as needed to take advantage of emerging technologies and accommodate constant change.
