Enterprise storage for virtualized data centers and the cloud
The Dell™ Compellent™ Storage Center combines a powerful data movement engine, virtualized software applications and an agile, hardware platform to redefine efficiency, productivity and protection in a truly scalable enterprise storage solution. The Dell™ Compellent™ Storage Center is an advanced storage array that allows organizations to actively manage data at a highly granular level using built-in intelligence and automation. As a key enabler of Dell’s Fluid Data Architecture, Storage Center puts data in the right place at the right time for the right cost.
Using revolutionary Fluid Data™ storage technology, Compellent can help slash the time and cost of managing storage up to 80%, now and in the future, while dramatically simplifying the management of your IT infrastructure. Your data is automatically placed on the right storage tier by a sophisticated data movement engine based on actual usage. By moving inactive data to lower cost, high capacity drives, your business can buy fewer high-performance drives, take advantage of more lower-tiered storage, and save money on cooling, power and space.
Compellent supports data access from virtually all applications, ensuring your employees have the data they need to drive business today and tomorrow. Data access is supported via multiprotocol interfaces which provide Fibre Channel, iSCSI, FCoE, and file access.
Business continuity is safeguarded through near-instant, any-point-in-time recovery. Compellent protects your data through integrated snapshots, synchronous replication, and data migration.
Built from the ground up to manage data differently, Dell Compellent storage provides a fully virtualized storage platform and a flexible storage foundation for both enterprise and cloud-computing environments.
This efficient, easy-to-manage storage solution optimizes drive utilization, dynamically moves data between storage tiers and RAID levels, continuously protects data against downtime and disaster, scales on demand, and quickly adapts to ever-changing business needs.
Empowered by real-time system information about each block of data, Storage Center optimizes data placement management and protection throughout its lifecycle. Storage is provisioned without wasting capacity. Data is moved where and when it’s needed based on actual use and performance needs. And data is continuously protected using pointer-based snapshots. This level of awareness also enables Storage Center to virtualize the storage infrastructure by creating a pool of high-performance storage shared by all servers and applications.
