Dell has launched a broad array of data center storage solutions to help enterprises running large scale server farms to quickly scale their infrastructure in order to meet the changing demands of the digital world influenced by cloud computing and big data trends.
On the very first day of Dell World 2015 which tool place on October 20, 2015, dell announced a range of Datacenter Scalable Solutions (DSS) for businesses. The newly launched unit comes after more than 8 years after Dell launched its first data center solution for business. The newly released DSS are customizes and optimized infrastructure solutions aimed at the dozen or so organizations that comprise the hyperscale computing market, such as Google, Facebook, eBay, Baidu, and Alibaba. These cloud based companies want systems that can rapidly scale and are high performing and highly energy efficient and are optimized to run their workloads.
Among the first of the DSS-branded systems is the DSS 7000, a dense storage server that officials said is built to handle the demands that will come with exascale computing over the next several years. It’s based on the DCS XA90, a massive, dense storage server that came out of the Datacenter Scalable Solutions business a year ago and can hold as much as 720TB in a 4U (7-inch) chassis.
The DSS can hold the same amount of data in a 4U chassis, and can hold up to 90 3.5-inch drives and two two-socket server nodes, all of which can drive down the dollar-per-gigabyte cost for object and block storage, officials said.
Dell is also introducing the DSS 1500, 1510 and 2500 1U (1.25-inch) 2U (3.5-inch) servers. The systems, powered by Intel’s Xeon chips, include flexible storage and interconnect capabilities, as well as industry-standard baseboard management controller (BMC) systems management.
Dell also is launching other new high-end storage offerings, including the Dell Storage Center 9000 storage array controller. The controller is based on Dell’s 13th-generation PowerEdge server platform, and offers a choice of configurations that include all-flash and hybrid-flash storage. According to Dell officials, it delivers 40 percent more IOPS (input/output operations per second) and more than twice the throughputs than previous arrays in the SC product family, and offers more than three Petabytes of capacity per array.
All the said solutions will be available from this month end.
Dell World 2015 will be held at Austin, Texas for 4 days i.e. Oct 20- Oct 23 and more details will be updated shortly!
