Dell Compellent Storage Virtualization
The optimal storage platform for server virtualization

Dell Compellent Storage Virtualization


Dell Compellent storage virtualization perfectly complements any leading virtualization environment. By aggregating physical disks into logical virtual volumes, the Dell Compellent Storage Center removes the limitations inherent in physical drives. The result is a dynamic pool of storage resources shared by virtual machines (VMs). Storage is presented to VMs as a single, virtualized pool of capacity, regardless of disk type, RAID level or server connectivity.

This all-in-one storage array puts data in the right place at the right time. The Dell Compellent Storage Center can help you can optimize efficiency, agility and resiliency, enabling you to slash storage costs up to 80 percent. You can scale on a single platform while securing your data against downtime and disaster. And best of all, with Fluid Data technology, your storage system can dynamically adapt to meet your evolving business needs.

Dell Compellent enables virtualized enterprise storage at the disk level, creating a dynamic pool of shared storage resources available to all servers. With read/write operations spread across all drives, multiple requests can be processed in parallel, boosting system performance. Dell Compellent Storage Virtualization allows users to create hundreds of volumes in seconds to support any virtual server platform and optimize the placement of virtual applications.

How to Increase Performance with Storage Virtualization

  • Improve asset utilization
  • Reduce the cost and complexity of managing both servers and storage
  • Eliminate capacity planning; provision from a single shared pool
  • Create easily restorable backups and highly available replicated server environments
  • Reduce power and cooling costs and shrink the data center footprint
  • Improve productivity and flexibility
  • Create any size virtual volumes without allocating drives to specific servers or dealing with complicated capacity planning and performance tuning
  • Present network storage to servers simply as disk capacity, regardless of tier, RAID level or server connectivity
  • Automatically restripe data across all drives in the storage pool when adding disk capacity
  • Dynamically scale the storage pool and implement system upgrades without disruption
  • Use virtual ports to increase port capacity, disk bandwidth, I/O connectivity and port failover
