This efficient combination works together to scale performance and capacity, achieving:

  • Linear performance expansion reaching 494,000 file opens with SPEC SFS 2008 and 11.9 GB/sec max throughput
  • Improved performance through mirrored cache and automated load balancing, even as you add more data
  • Up to four FS8600 NAS appliances and eight SC series storage arrays in a single scale-out storage solution

High rack density and low cost per GB

Dell Storage Center with Compellent FS8600 and SCv2080 storage arrays offer ideal rack density for storage-intensive workloads, providing:

  • Best storage density compared to the top five storage vendors, storing 1PB of raw capacity in 14U rack space
  • Low cost per GB of USD $0.18/GB for 1PB of raw capacity
  • Increased efficiency with scale-out architecture, flash optimization, automated tiering and built-in policy-driven, block-level deduplication and compression
  • Unencumbered capacity with NAS thin provisioning and space reclamation

Scale-out performance and capacity on the fly

Expand file storage performance and capacity within your existing infrastructure, transparently adding and managing drives, storage enclosures or NAS appliances as needed:

  • Scale easily to 4PB in a single file system and over 20PB in a single namespace
  • Enhance flexibility with multiple protocol support, including SMB, NFS and FTP
  • Protect data locally using snapshots, NDMP backup, remote replication and snapshot archiving
  • Simplify data management with Dell Storage Manager for managing SAN and NAS; file system quotas; file extension filtering; and CLI, Powershell and REST management APIs
  • Improve data security and governance with rich integration via Active Directory/LDAP, network isolation and support for file-system auditing like Change Auditor
