Earlier this month, Dell unveiled their newest all-flash midrange storage solution, Dell EMC PowerStore. This new offering utilizes a container-based architecture, advanced storage technologies and intelligent automation. Based on a scale-out architecture and hardware-accelerated advanced data reduction, PowerStore is designed to deliver enhanced resource utilization and performance that keeps pace with application and system growth. Utilizing the proven capabilities of VMware ESXi, PowerStore X models with AppsON provide the unique ability to host data-intensive and storage applications directly on the PowerStore system with a storage-based virtualization environment, with the flexibility of seamless movement of applications between the storage system and external VMware servers. PowerStore T models provide organizations with all the benefits of an enterprise unified storage platform for block, file and vVol data, while enabling flexible growth with the intelligent scale-up AND scale-out capability of appliance clusters.
Based on a versatile scale-up and out platform utilizing Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and today’s most advanced storage technologies, including NVMe Flash and dual-ported Intel® OptaneTM SSDs and always-on inline data reduction, PowerStore uses powerful analytics, automation and active resource balancing to optimize performance and eliminate management overhead. Each appliance utilizes dual active-active storage nodes and a container-based software architecture to provide maximum adaptability. Additional storage capacity is added to each appliance via up to three drive expansion enclosures.
