Key Benefits of Dell EMC PowerScale Storage
Reviews from Real Users
Dell EMC PowerScale storage stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its scalability capabilities and its user-friendly centralized management system.
Rachel B., a chief operations officer & acting CFO at Like a Photon, writes, "PowerScale allows us to manage storage without managing RAID groups or migrating volumes between controllers. It has really simplified things. We're not having to worry about the underlying infrastructure. That takes care of itself. We just worry about the data. It's really easy for deploying and managing storage at the petabyte scale."
Keith B., the director of IT at NatureFresh Farms, writes, "The single pane of glass for both IT and for the end-user is a valuable feature. On the IT side, I can actually control where things are stored, whether something is stored on solid-state drives or spinning drives... The single pane of glass makes it very easy to use and very easy to understand. We started at 100 terabytes, and we moved to 250 and it still feels like the exact same system and we're able to move data as needed."
Sonexion system’s modular, pre-integrated and compact design keeps costs low while delivering the right performance for analytics, compute clusters and supercomputers of all types. Performance and capacity scale efficiently in modular building blocks, reducing the number of hard disk drives needed to achieve sustained performance at scale. Performance is optimized end to end, from the compute clients to the network to the storage subsystem, based on the application workload.
Data protection is provided through Grid RAID, a declustered parity form of data protection that speeds up rebuild times three and a half times over traditional RAID, while maintaining Lustre performance.
