Let’s be real for a minute. Dell recognizes the fact that the storage market has become increasing competitive…particularly when it comes to flash-based solutions. Have you noticed that companies out there tend to offer either a hybrid-flash solution or an all-flash solution, but not both…? It’s because they can’t…but Dell Compellent can.

The Dell Compellent SC220 all-flash enclosure has:

  • Twenty-four (24) 2.5” drive bays or slots
  • Twelve (12) of these drive bays are populated with SSD drives (all flash drives)
  • Six (6) 400GB write-intensive SLC SSDs
  • Six (6) 1.6TB read-intensive MLC SSDs
  • Twelve remaining slots can be filled with six-packs of SLC and MLC SSDs

The Dell Compellent SC220 hybrid-flash enclosure has:

  • Twenty-four (24) 2.5” drive bays or slots
  • Twelve (12) of these drive bays are populated with SSD drives
  • Six (6) 400GB write-intensive SLC SSDs
  • Six (6) 1.6TB read-intensive MLC SSDs
  • Remaining twelve (12) drives can be a combination of SSDs and 1TB 7.2K RPM HDDs (rotating disks)

No doubt the SC220 hybrid-flash solution provides some great flexibility and scalability as it provides three (3) tiers of storage while:

  • Being configured to use one or more SC220 flash enclosures with both write- and read-intensive SSDs and HDDs
  • It can also expand capacity with SC220 enclosures
  • Add SC220 enclosures which can use 7.2K, 10K or 15K RPM drives
  • Add SC200 enclosures with large capacity drives
  • Add SC280 enclosures with 4TB 7.2K RPM drives

Talk about flexibility here, particularly with the Dell Compellent hybrid-flash solution(s). Finding Compellent pricing can reveal some good budgetary numbers, but it is recommended you go through a trusted Dell Compellent reseller to create a customized presentation based on your requirements.

Yup, Dell is back in the storage game with some powerful SSD / flash-based solutions…oh, yeah…
