Optimizing Scale and Availability for Enterprises
Storage Center 5.4 , the most recent Compellent release marks the most comprehensive product refresh in Compellent history. The new Dell Compellent virtualized storage array allows enterprises to rapidly adapt to changing business requirements—with greater scale up from a next-generation hardware platform and enhanced scale out from a dynamic business continuity suite. Organizations can now leverage the latest industry standards, from 10 Gb iSCSI and FCoE frontend connectivity to 2.5" or 3.5" 6 Gb SAS drives and enclosures. A new Series 40 controller boosts performance by 25% for demanding applications. And Live Volume software delivers high availability and continuous access to data by enabling transparent volume migration
between two Dell Compellent arrays.
The Storage Center 5.4 Key Features
- 6 Gb SAS drives provide twice the performance and use nearly half the power of 3 Gb SAS drives
- 2.5" SAS drives are two-thirds smaller than 3.5" drives, resulting in a significant performance boost with a smaller footprint
- 6 Gb SAS enclosures provide 24 bays to accommodate twice the number of spindles in the same amount of rackspace
- Series 40 controller features more memory, six PCI-e slots and a battery-less cache, and provides 25% higher I/O performance
- 10 Gb iSCSI and FCoE I/O cards and HBAs provide the latest industry-standard interconnect performance
- Live Volume acts as a storage hypervisor, actively mapping one storage volume to two Dell Compellent arrays at the same time
