Dell EMC just launched PowerStore – their new storage appliance, built around a unified data-centric architecture.
Here is a quick primer on the Dell EMC PowerStore 9000, PowerStore 5000 and PowerStore 1000 storage appliances!
Dell EMC PowerStore : What Is It?
Dell EMC PowerStore is a new mid-range storage appliance, with a flexible, container-based architecture, and end-to-end NVMe design.
It promises to offer 7X better performance with 3X lower latency than previous mid-range storage appliances, as well as the ability to scale up to 2.8 petabytes per appliance, and up to 11.3 petabytes per cluster.
Dell EMC PowerStore : Advantages
Dell EMC promises that PowerStore will offer these advantages to organisations looking to transform their data center operations :
Designed For Any Workload
Dell EMC PowerStore will support any workload, whether traditional or modern workloads.
Its PowerStoreOS container-based software architecture offers portability, standardisation, as well as rapid deployment.
It also supports AppsON, which allows organisations to run applications directly on the appliance.
High Performance, Massive Storage
Thanks to its end-to-end NVMe design, and support for dual-ported Intel Optane Storage Class Memory (SCM) SSDs, it is seven times faster with three times lower latency than its predecessor, Unity XT.
Each appliance can offer up to 898 TB of storage, which can be scaled up using expansion enclosures to 2.8 petabytes. It can also be scaled out to eight nodes, offering 11.3 petabytes of storage in the cluster.
It also automatically dedupes and compresses the data, offering a guaranteed 4:1 data reduction.
When scaled out, Dell EMC PowerStore are loosely coupled, allowing a machine learning engine to intelligently place data to rebalance storage volumes.
The machine learning engine is continuously and autonomously monitoring resources of each appliances and data requests, for maximum efficiency.
Dell EMC Cloud Storage Services can directly connect PowerStore to all major public clouds. It can be deployed as a storage option within Dell EMC PowerOne autonomous infrastructure.
