Dell Technologies has announced Dell EMC PowerScale, a new family of storage systems engineered with storage software and server hardware. The platform is designed to set a new standard for how businesses capture and capitalize on unstructured data, such as documents, images, videos, and social media content. Dell EMC PowerScale runs on the next generation of OneFS, the operating system best known for powering Dell EMC Isilon.
Dell EMC enables digital transformation through hybrid cloud and big data solutions built on a data center infrastructure that brings together converged infrastructure, servers, storage, and cybersecurity technologies. The provider’s featured solution, Dell EMC Unity XT, offers multi-cloud enablement and an NVMe-ready design. Users can support virtualized applications, deploy unified storage, and address Remote-Office-Branch-Office requirements. The platform’s Unisphere management GUI also allows users to easily configure and manage storage. Dell EMC offers file and object storage solutions as well.
The PowerScale family features new 1U PowerEdge-based PowerScale all-flash and NVMe nodes and existing Isilon all-flash, hybrid, and archive nodes running the PowerScale OneFS 9.0 operating system. The PowerScale family provides up to 15.8 million input-output operations per second (IOPS) per cluster, enabling users to handle demanding AI, analytics, IoT, digital media, healthcare, and life sciences workloads. Additionally, new all-flash PowerScale F200 nodes are up to five times faster than its predecessor.
In a press statement, Dan Inbar, president and general manager of Storage at Dell Technologies said, “the amount of unstructured data enterprises store as file or object storage is expected to triple by 2024, and there are no signs of it slowing. In this data era, businesses need a simple, seamless, and cost-effective way to store and use unstructured data to innovate, create differentiation, and bring products to market faster. The Dell EMC PowerScale family provides the foundation companies need to unlock the potential of their data, no matter where it resides, and use it to drive meaningful business impact.”
