Dell EMC expands all-flash midrange storage

Dell EMC is expanding its industry-leading midrange storage portfolio with two new SC All-Flash data storage arrays, along with key software updates to Dell EMC Unity designed to boost efficiency and cost savings for mixed block and file workloads.

Additionally, Dell EMC is introducing its Future-Proof Storage Loyalty Program. The new program offers the industry’s strongest three-year satisfaction guarantee along with customer benefits such as all-inclusive software, hardware investment protection, storage efficiency guarantees, worry-free data migrations and free Virtustream Storage Cloud.

John Byrne, president, Global Channels, Dell EMC, said “The storage opportunity for Dell EMC partners is immense, and the Future-Proof Storage Loyalty programme delivers even more benefit to those partners who want to truly go big and win big with us. The combination of Dell EMC’s market-leading, transformation-enabling storage portfolio and the ability for partners to put more competitive deals on the table is absolutely a game-changer: for customers, for partners, and for Dell EMC.”

Optimised for All-Flash, the new Dell EMC SC All-Flash storage arrays offer premium performance and enterprise-ready features. The Dell EMC SC5020F and Dell EMC SC7020F are offered as 3U appliances featuring dual active/active controllers with 8-core Intel Xeon processors and up to 256GB memory and multiprotocol support for 10GB iSCSI and 16/32GB FC network connections.

Designed for simplicity, All-Flash performance and unified SAN-NAS environments, Dell EMC Unity helps organisations speed deployment, streamline management and seamlessly tier storage to the cloud. The new Unity v4.3 OS provides several key updates including deduplication to help lower costs, along with new technologies to facilitate non-disruptive system upgrades and enable file synchronisation.

Customers purchasing new Dell EMC Unity or SC Series products, whether direct or through channel partners, and have a valid maintenance contract are eligible for the program at no additional cost.

SC All-Flash will be available in December; Unity OS v4.3 will be made available in January 2018 to Dell EMC Unity customers with a valid support contract. The Dell EMC Future-Proof Storage Loyalty program is available now with the purchase of any new SC Series or Dell EMC Unity data storage array.
