5 advantages to modern data storage solutions

Dell EMC

Newer midrange storage designs such as Dell EMC Unity All-Flash and SC Series storage provide small and midsize companies with easy-to-use enterprise-class functionality that’s scalable, agile and affordable.

Here’s 5 advantages of modern data for midsize companies.

1. Agile scaling balances performance and capacity for your specific workloads

The flexible configuration options of Dell EMC Unity and SC Series storage solutions allow small and midsize organizations to scale to multi-node clusters (all managed from a single pane of glass) to support up to 60PB of raw capacity per cluster and over 1M IOPS on some models.

2. Automated management features simplify storage operations

Flash storage technology optimised for midsize companies now offers pre-configured settings to automate common tasks like provisioning. Policy-driven response makes storage more “self-managing” with features like vendor-developed and tested workflow templates for recurring operations.

3. Bundled data services and software reduced costs

Instead of paying a la carte for enterprise-class data services and software, mid-size companies can now benefit from a more inclusive, bundled data services and software model that includes compression, in-line deduplication, and zero-detect capabilities — with the base price of an array that’s licensed out to the full capacity of the system.

4. Improved cloud integration optimises availability, functionality and TCO

Cloud-based predictive analytics platforms, such as Dell EMC’s CloudIQ SaaS application, remotely collects detailed data and uses big data analytics to increase availability and functionality, automate operations and lower TCO.

5. Post-purchase investment protection guarantees your storage (and peace of mind)

Comprehensive post-purchase vendor programs can add significant value. The Dell EMC Future-Proof Loyalty Program includes satisfaction, efficiency, data migration and hardware guarantees. This program also provides predictable, low maintenance costs over the life of your storage solution.
