Sorry, this product is no longer available, Please contact usfor a replacement.



The Dell Compellent™ Storage Center SAN is an all-in-one storage array that allows organizations to actively manage data at a highly granular level using built-in intelligence and automation. With its Fluid Data architecture, Storage Center always puts data in the right place at the right time for the right cost. This ultra-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. Storage Center enables organizations to cut the time, cost and risk of managing enterprise storage—today and in the future.

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.

Dell Compellent™ Storage Center with Fluid Data technology delivers an all-in-one storage array that always puts data in the right place at the right time for the right cost — and dynamically adapts to meet changing business needs.

  • Automate and manage your entire infrastructure.
  • Protect your data against downtime and disaster.
  • Experience best-in-class enterprise support with immediate response.
  • Dynamically scales to meet business requirements. Start with any size Storage Center array and expand over time—from 2TB to nearly 2PB, without downtime or disruption
  • Supports an intermix of SSD, FC, SAS and SATA drive technologies as well as iSCSI, FCoE, and FC front-end interconnects—all in the same system at the same time
  • Supports a unified storage solution for both structured and unstructured data
  • Provides Thin Provisioning and Automated Tiered Storage to deliver optimum disk utilization and intelligent data movement
  • 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

Manage and virtualize your data efficiently

Dell Compellent Storage Center delivers optimized efficiency, agility and resiliency to scale on a single platform and secure data against downtime and disaster with the multi-protocol Dell Compellent Storage Center featuring Fluid Data technology.



Dell Compellent Storage Center is an enterprise data storage array that delivers high performance with fewer drives, power and space. In fact, with Fluid Data storage, your cost per gigabyte can actually decrease as you grow.

  • Storage virtualization — storage is virtualized at the drive level, creating an ultra-efficient, high-performance pool of storage shared by all servers and applications.
  • Thin provisioning — virtual volumes of any size are provisioned upfront, yet physical capacity is only consumed on write.
  • Automated tiered storage — using granular real-time intelligence, snapshots and inactive data automatically move to lower-cost drives, while new writes and active data remain on high-performance drives.


Dell Compellent Storage Center forms a solid foundation for flexible grid storage, allowing you to scale up and out with dynamic business continuity. What’s more, you can do it all without downtime or disruption.

  • Technology independence — mix and match the latest drive and interconnect technologies, and easily add new technologies as they become available.
  • Non-disruptive architecture — add capacity, dynamically change system configuration and initiate new functionality online without disrupting operations or suspending data access.
  • Unified storage management — easily manage your entire storage infrastructure and save time and effort through built-in automation.
  • Dynamic business continuity — non-disruptively migrate volumes between storage arrays and data centers, creating an on-demand cloud infrastructure.


The Dell Compellent Storage Center enables you to continuously protect data against downtime and disaster—without the need for full-volume clones, capacity pre-allocation or high-speed data links. Fully redundant hardware and advanced failover features help to ensure high availability.

  • Space-efficient snapshots — once an initial snapshot is taken, only incremental changes in data need to be captured, allowing you to take continuous snapshots for near-instant recovery to any point in time.
  • Thin replication — cost-effectively replicate data synchronously or asynchronously over Fibre Channel or IP connections. Only subsequent changes are replicated following initial site synchronization.
  • Highly-available architecture — deliver uninterrupted data access with clustered controllers, automated failover, dual paths from servers to drives, virtualized ports, and fully redundant power supplies and fans.
