Dell Technologies announces Dell EMC PowerScale, a new family of storage systems engineered with industry-leading storage software and server hardware to set a new industry standard for how organisations capture and capitalise on unstructured data, such as documents, images, videos and social media content.
“The amount of unstructured data enterprises store as file or object storage is expected to triple by 2024, and there are no signs of it slowing,” said Dan Inbar, president and general manager, Storage, Dell Technologies. “In this data era, businesses need a simple, seamless and cost-effective way to store and use unstructured data to innovate, create differentiation and bring products to market faster. The Dell EMC PowerScale family provides the foundation companies need to unlock the potential of their data, no matter where it resides, and use it to drive meaningful business impact.”
"Organisations across Asia Pacific and Japan are looking for their unstructured data storage solutions to do three things well – be scalable, manage the increasing growth of data volume as well as data types and finally, handle data well, no matter where it lives,” said Jay Tuseth, General Manager, Unstructured Data Solutions, Asia Pacific, Japan & China, Dell Technologies. “The Dell EMC PowerScale storage portfolio is designed to address our customer needs and enable them to fully unlock the potential of their data by offering simplicity at any scale, handling any unstructured data, be it across data centres, at the Edge or in the cloud, and providing intelligent insights that are drawn from their data as well as their infrastructure.”
The leader in enterprise storage unlocks the potential of unstructured data
Dell EMC PowerScale runs on the next generation of OneFS, the operating system best known for powering Dell EMC Isilon. The PowerScale family features new 1U PowerEdge-based PowerScale all-flash and NVMe nodes and existing Isilon all-flash, hybrid and archive nodes running the PowerScale OneFS 9.0 operating system.
The PowerScale family delivers up to 15.8 million input-output operations per second (IOPS) per cluster, offering the performance that customers need to handle demanding AI, analytics, IOT, digital media, healthcare and life sciences workloads. New all-flash PowerScale F200 nodes bring up to five times more performance than its predecessor. Enhanced inline data reduction makes the platform up to six times more efficient.
