Dell Technologies has announced a wide range of new and optimized data storage, management and protection applications and services. This includes Dell EMC Unity and Isilon portfolios with clear connections to (multi)cloud environments.

In addition to various strategic announcements and new service concepts, Dell Technologies is of course using its major event Dell Technologies World 2019 in Las Vegas this week to also make many product announcements for the supplier’s storage portfolio and related services.

Unity and Isilon portfolios

In concrete terms, this primarily concerns the Unity and Isilon portfolios. Dell Technologies introduces the midrange storage system Dell EMC Unity XT which offers up to 2x faster performance than its predecessor and is also optimized for greater data efficiency, such as a 5:1 data reduction. The storage application is specifically built for use in (multi) public cloud environments, according to the manufacturer.

In addition, the Dell EMC Unity XT platforms provide all the computing power needed to run applications, process and block inline data reduction while delivering a variety of operational data services. The storage application also has an active architecture and is suitable for NVMe

Update from Isilon

In addition to the Dell EMC Unity portfolio, the Dell EMC scale-out Isilon NAS portfolio will also be updated. With this update, the supplier wants to help end users to process the flow of data that mainly generate artificial intelligence solutions.

The latest version of Isilon offers more scalability, improved integration with cloud environments and security solutions to support the most demanding workloads. The Isilon OneFS 8.2 software offers up to 75 percent greater cluster scalability up to 252 nodes that allow updated throughput of up to 58PB and 945GB/s per cluster. The new Isilon H5600 hybrid scale-out NAS storage platform also offers an ideal balance between compact capacity and performance, according to the vendor.

Dell EMC Cloud Storage Services

But it’s not just hardware, the portfolio of storage services has also been expanded. Especially for preparing end users for the expansion of on-premise infrastructure to public cloud environments for various extra services.

Dell EMC Cloud Storage Services extends the manufacturer’s cloud-compatible infrastructure solutions. Dell EMC Cloud Storage Services helps organizations expand data centers into public cloud environments in conjunction with Dell EMC storage applications. In concrete terms, this means, among other things, that this storage is directly connected to public (multi)cloud environments and can be delivered as an as-a-service. See the new Dell EMC Unity XT application mentioned above.

Data management solutions

The tech giant also presented solutions to manage and protect data, including backup in virtualized and public cloud environments; the Dell EMC PowerProtect Software platform; and the Dell EMC PowerProtect X400 multidimensional appliance.

The Dell EMC PowerProtect software platform provides data protection, replication and reuse as well as SaaS-based management and self-service capabilities that give customers the autonomy to manage backup and recovery operations.

The Dell EMC PowerProtect X400 is available as a hybrid or full flash data management appliance. The application is the first Dell Technologies application to use machine learning for intelligent job scheduling.

Finally, Dell EMC is also announcing an 8-24TB version of the Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA) DP4400 for smaller businesses.

The availability of all the solutions presented lies between the months of May and July of this year.
