Dell Compellent Server Instant Replay
Simplify server management

Dell Compellent Server Instant Replay


As part of Dell Compellent Data Instant Replay license, Dell Compellent Server Instant Replay functionality gives you a complete boot from SAN solution that helps reduce capital costs, cuts administrative time and can increase server performance and availability. Making implementation seamless, the Dell Compellent Storage Center SAN provides management without server-based agents that would interfere with the server boot process. An intuitive wizard automates the entire process, allowing admins to provision or recover servers with just a few clicks.

Boot from SAN

Dell Compellent Server Instant Replay is a complete Boot from SAN solution that leverages space-efficient snapshots to simplify physical and virtual server management. Using boot images stored on the Storage Center SAN, network storage administrators can deploy, provision or recover servers in minutes. There is no need for full-volume clones or server-based agents that may interfere with the process. The enterprise storage software is also ideal for testing application upgrades and patches without risk.
