Dell Compellent Network Storage Hardware
Modular, Scalable Hardware Platform

Dell Compellent Network Storage HardwareThe 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.

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.

  • Delivers Space-Efficient Snapshots and Thin Replication for continuous data protection without wasted capacity
  • Provides built-in automation and unified storage management to streamline storage provisioning, management, migration, monitoring and reporting

Compellent Hardware

Compellent HardwareUnlike network storage systems that require organizations to rip and replace hardware as business needs change, Dell Compellent enterprise storage uses standards-based hardware and supports new technologies on a single, modular storage platform. Administrators can mix the latest SSD, FC and SAS drives and enclosures in the same system, as well as utilize a range of front-end interconnects, including 8 Gb Fibre Channel, 10 Gb iSCSI and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE). Fully redundant hardware components and advanced failover features ensure no single point of failure for high data availability. Users can scale up and out on demand, changing network hardware configurations as needed to take advantage of emerging technologies and accommodate constant change.
