dell-SC4020-400Today, IT departments, both large and small, are looking to get more for less.  In order for organizations to be competitively productive, IT managers not only need to identify the optimal technology that satisfies the technical requirements, but they also need to acquire the most optimized technology that best satisfies the requirements of the application at the lowest cost to the business. Studies from ESG research show that one of the most important criteria when it comes to IT investment are price and total cost of ownership (TCO). As your local IT solutions provider, MR2 Solutions helps companies balance these requirements from a storage perspective by looking at the price of the equipment, examining the efficiencies built into the storage system, and understanding the TCO of the investment. 

Therefore, MR2 Solutions and Dell have partnered up to promote the newest storage solutions technology that provides more performance with less investment. Dell Storage channel introduces its latest version of SC8000, which is the SC4020 storage array with read-intensive SSDs. The Dell Storage SC4020 is designed to provide the enterprise-class features and functionality of the Dell Compellent SC8000 storage system in a more cost-effective package that is optimized for small midsized deployments. The SC4020 comes in a 2U dual controller enclosure with 24 integrated drive slots, 8 Fibre Channel or 4 iSCSI host ports, and 4 SAS disk expansion ports. SC200/220 disk enclosures can be added to scale the system up to 120 drives and are powered by a single quad-core 2.5GHz Intel processor with 32GB of memory. Despite the new specks that make this appliance more efficient, there are other technologies that make this solution more cost-effective: 

 

Automation and Intelligence: 

All Dell systems based on the SC Series (Compellent) technology leverage Data Progression to ensure that data is stored on the optimal storage media with optimal RAID level always. As a result, Data Progression lowers TCO as it maintains performance while lowering the overall cost of storage. Where other vendors simply use high-cost SLC flash media as antoher teir of storage, Data Progression utilizes this teir to ensure the highest performance for incoming writes. After taking advantage of the high write performance of the SLCs, data is automatically progressed onto lower cost, high read performance MLC drives. 

 

Virtualization and Simplified Management: 

The ESG Lab validated that the SC4020 reduces costs with the same virtualzation and efficiency features that are included in the enterprise-level SC8000 storage system. This frees the administrator from traditional physical restraints with traditionall HDD and SSD. The built-in storage virtualization allows data to be stored, scaled, moved , tiered, delivered and replicated in the most optimal and efficient manner possible, while minimizing the cost and management complexity associated with traditional multi-tiered storage environments. All data stored on the array is automatically placed on the storage tecnology and RAID level that allows organizations to deploy less storage to solve IT pains and challenges. 

 

Cost Efficiency Lowers TCO:

This solution utilizes cost-effective hardware in a smaller footprint that helps lower cost of acquisition while minimizing power and cooling costs. The SC Series architecutre enables customers to purchase and deploy less capacity, while the fine-tuned SC4020 licensing model helps to lower licencing costs. All Dell SC Series storage arrays do not need forklift upgrades, and contain perpetual software licenses and full Copilot support, ensuring that today's investment can be leveraged for future growth. Ultimately, TCO is reduced, making it one of CRN's "10 Coolest Flash Storage and SSD Products of 2014."
