Enhanced performance and density

Experience the combined benefits of Dell Compellent architecture and a resilient Dell hardware design that offers improved performance and increased memory over previous generation Dell Compellent controllers.

  • 2U rack chassis with dual six-core, 2.5GHz (with Turbo) Intel® Xeon® E5-2640 CPUs
  • 16GB2 to 64GB2 total available cache per controller, with a maximum 128GB2 per dual controller system (a dual controller configuration is required to support full high-availability and failover capabilities in production environments)
  • Six PCIe Gen3-enabled expansion slots to extend I/O capabilities for future growth
  • Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC7 Enterprise) to add hardware and environmental monitoring capabilities to the Storage Center solution
  • Storage Center Operating System 64-bit support for improved scalability and performance

Intuitive software

Go beyond basic storage and optimize your data with the active, intelligent management capabilities of Storage Center firmware and the Dell Compellent integrated software feature set. Built-in automation, enhanced support for enterprise-class workloads and optimized design for flash-based environments helps improve the provisioning, placement and protection of data throughout its lifecycle.

  • Straightforward software upgrades and perpetual software licensing enable consistent, seamless growth.
  • Allows the Dell Compellent Storage Center to reach performance levels over 300,000 IOPS3.
  • Achieve greater than 100,000 IOPS with sub-millisecond latency when running OLTP workloads4.
  • Dynamic Capacity allows thin provisioning of any size virtual volume without consuming physical capacity until data is written to disk.
  • Data Instant Replay ensures that once an initial snapshot of a volume is taken, only incremental changes in data need to be captured.
  • Data Progression writes active blocks of data to Tier 1 storage while automatically migrating inactive blocks of data to lower-tier storage with high protection.
  • Fast Track places data on the appropriate tracks within individual hard drives in the drive enclosures.
  • Enterprise Manager simplifies network storage management by providing a single, centralized console for administering multiple local and remote Storage Center SANs.
  • Remote Instant Replay provides continuous data protection by replicating only incremental changes in data following initial site synchronization. This method of Thin Replication helps keep hardware expenses in check.
  • Live Volume allows moving and sharing storage volumes between two separate systems without disruption.

Enhance efficiency with resilient hardware

The SC8000 is a 2U rack chassis with dual six-core, 2.5GHz (with Turbo) Intel® E5-2640 processors. It can support full high-availability and failover capabilities with a dual controller system and provide enhanced diagnostics capability with the Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC).

The SC8000 offers exceptional power efficiency with dual redundant 80 PLUS® Platinum rated hot-swappable, low wattage power supplies and has six redundant hot-plug fans. Using Fresh Air™ technology, the SC8000 can operate at higher temperatures or even chiller-free environments to help reduce datacenter costs.

Providing up to five nines of availability (99.999% availability), Storage Center keeps critical customer data at the ready1. Combining resilient hardware and software with world-class Copilot Support helps enterprises realize the continuous data availability critical to their success.

Increase storage optimization with intelligent, automated software

Built-in intelligence and automation optimize the storage environment, and every enterprise feature is fully integrated for optimum efficiency, flexibility and performance. Empowered by real-time system information about each block of data, Storage Center optimizes data placement, management and protection throughout its lifecycle. Storage is provisioned without wasting capacity. Data is moved where it’s needed, when it’s needed, based on actual use and performance needs. Data is automatically tiered from SLC and MLC SSDs as well as traditional rotating disk options to optimize performance and cost. And data is continuously protected using pointer-based snapshots.

Storage Center leverages a comprehensive software suite with advanced functionality. At the core of the solution is true storage virtualization, which pools all resources across the array for maximum efficiency and performance. Thin provisioning, automated tiered storage software and space-efficient snapshot technology help you get more out of your storage investment. Thin replication and dynamic business continuity software provide a cost-effective recovery and allow for the movement of volumes between arrays without disruption.
