Manish Gupta, Director, Enterprise Solutions Group, Dell India said, “This is an exciting product for our customers in the India market and will resonate well with customers in financial markets, trading floors and real time analytics looking for a shared storage. The SC9000 along with accompanying software enhancements offers customers the highest-performing, most enterprise-focused SC Series release to date and helps large-scale deployments achieve mission-critical business goals faster, more consistently, and with less cost.”
Neeraj Matiyani, Director, Storage Solutions, Dell India said, “We have taken a customer-centric approach to develop our storage solutions in line with the industry’s rapidly changing approach to IT. Our new offerings cater to emerging market demands, with options of scalability and flexibility for new-age workloads, thus driving greater efficiency and adding business value to our customers.”
The Dell Storage SC9000, based on Dell’s 13th generation PowerEdge server platform, offers all-flash and hybrid flash configurations and delivers 40 percent more IOPs – with the ability to achieve more than 385,000 IOPS3—and more than double the throughput4 compared to previous SC Series arrays. Supporting the most demanding large-scale workloads, the flexible and self-optimizing SC9000 provides more than three petabytes of raw capacity per array and scales-out even further in federated multi-array configurations with seamless volume movement among arrays. The new system is fast and can deliver up to 360,000 IOPS with less than 1ms latency.
The new Dell Storage Center 6.7 array software offers substantial enterprise enhancements, boosting overall SC Series support for private clouds and other mission-critical applications. Highlighted new capabilities include Live Volume auto-failover for built-in disaster recovery with zero workload downtime and integrated host-side data protection for Oracle, Microsoft and VMware environments. New active data compression capabilities offer up to 93 percent flash capacity savings5, and innovations, such as the industry-first deployment of TLC 3D NAND technology in a true high-performance, high-endurance setting, provide further cost savings.
