Enterprise networking vendor Dell is set to strengthen its presence in large-scale datacenter market with new products and IT solutions.

The announcement was made at Dell World 2015.

Marius Haas, chief commercial officer and president of Dell Commercial Sales and Enterprise Solutions, said: “The new solutions and services announced demonstrate the ability to scale simply and cost-effectively.”

Dell DSS-branded Servers

Dell has introduced Dell Datacenter Scalable Solutions (DSS) targeting web tech, telecommunications service providers, hosting companies, oil and gas, and research organizations.

The Dell DSS 7000 storage server, based on the DCS XA90, delivers up to 720 terabytes of storage in a single 4U chassis. The DSS 7000 packs up to 90 hot-serviceable 3.5-inch drives and two 2-socket server nodes to provide cloud builders with a low dollar-per-gigabyte cost for object and block storage.

The Dell DSS 1500, DSS 1510 and DSS 2500 — on the latest Intel Xeon processors — help customers maximize operational efficiency while providing optimal performance.

Dell Storage Arrays

Dell announced the industry’s lowest cost-per-gigabyte for SSD storage with enterprise SC9000 all-flash arrays as low as 65 cents per gigabyte net effective capacity including the array, all storage software and three years of Dell Copilot support.

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 IOPS — and more than double the throughput compared to previous SC Series arrays.

The 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.

New Dell Storage Center 6.7 array software’s active data compression capabilities offer up to 93 percent flash capacity savings.

Dell Data Protection | Rapid Recovery

Next-generation Dell Data Protection | Rapid Recovery software features Rapid Recovery Repository (R3) with encryption and client-side deduplication based on Rapid Data Access (RDA) technology. R3 delivers direct-to-target backups and significantly reduces the deduplication workload, resulting in quicker snapshots, reduced data transfer times, and greater scale.

Dell is delivering the first release of Dell Data Protection | Endpoint Recovery, a new software solution with IP to deliver continuous backup and fast, easy endpoint recovery. Dell is offering vRanger at $699.

Dell XC Series Appliances

Dell announced XC Series of Web-scale Converged Appliances including Dell XC6320 with 4 compute nodes that support more than 44 terabytes of storage in a 2U form factor. This substantially reduces datacenter hardware rack space, power and cooling required to run various workloads in service provider, ROBO and large customer datacenters.
