Dell EMC has revealed the main benefits of the Dell EMC PowerVault ME4 entry-level data storage arrays for small- and medium-sized businesses in India.
The cost effective PowerVault ME4 series can help SMB organizations to modernize IT and boost application performance. India-based SMBs are looking for cost effective IT plans to reduce IT budget and improve business efficiency.
Dell’s 31.6 revenue share lead in the external entry storage segment is more than the next six competitors combined. Dell EMC has an install base of more than 400,000 PowerVault units worldwide. Dell EMC does not share India specific details.
“The new PowerVault ME4 series delivers significant increases over previous Dell EMC entry systems in capacity, performance, simplicity and features.” said Niladri Saha, GM – Modern Infrastructure, Dell EMC.
Dell EMC said it built the PowerVault ME4 series — powered by a dual-core Intel Broadwell processor — with 75 more drives to increase raw storage capacity by 122, while also boosting read IOPS performance by 4X.
Dell EMC will be targeting some of the storage use cases such as video surveillance, HPC, virtualization/VDI, entry SAN, low cost consolidation, video editing, NoSQL databases, direct attached and OEM solutions.
Dell EMC said three models offer from 12 to 84 storage drives that can be configured from 0-100 flash and support any mix of SSDs and HDDs. This provides the capabilities to deliver the optimal performance and low response times of flash with the economics of disk.
PowerVault ME4 series can expand up to 4PB and drive up to 320,000 IOPs.
Integration with Dell EMC PowerEdge 13th and 14th Generation servers simplify challenges of server capacity expansion, providing business applications with reliable high-speed data access in either SAN or DAS environments.
IT engineers can install PowerVault ME4 series in 15 minutes and take 15 more minutes to configure and begin storing data as either hybrid or all-flash storage. IT engineers can also manage the PowerVault ME4 Series with a new HTML5 user interface.
They can use a web browser to handle common management tasks such as configuring and managing storage profiles and network connections, responding to alerts and more, Dell EMC said.
