Dell Compellent SC4020 Array

Dell has announced a new storage array, the SC4020, and an aggressive plan to go after all-flash array vendors with an initial sales price under $100,000.

The SC4020 is a pint-size Compellent array. Everything Compellent arrays and Dell’s Fluid Data software can do has been put into the new unit’s 2U chassis. At that size there’s only room for 24 disks, but companion disk drawers can bulk things out to 120 drives and total raw capacity of 413TB.

2U is enough room for two controllers each sporting a quad-core XeonE3-1265L v2 running at 2.50GHz. Each controller also boasts four 8GB Fibre Channel ports while an iSCSI version is due soon.

The SC4020 is a unified storage device so you can treat it as a NAS or SAN depending on your requirements.
