Dell EMC makes moves to modernize the data center

27 Sep 16

Following Dell’s acquisition of EMC in what’s dubbed ‘the world’s largest tech merger’, Dell EMC has introduced a new product that transforms the data center.

The Dell EMC ScaleIO Ready Node is a software-define, all-flash offering that runs on Dell EMC’s PowerEdge x86 servers.

Recently merged, the company positions its latest product as a key component of its portfolio that looks to modernize the data center.

According to Dell EMC, the ScaleIO Ready Node combines flexible configurations of PowerEdge servers with ScaleIO software and a fully supported SDS solution that makes customer deployment easier.

More so, the organization says it is a comprehensive solution that can help customers to build a modern data center using very few SKUs.

Josh Goldstein, vice president of Product Management and Marketing for ScaleIO at Dell EMC, says the product is a perfect example of Dell EMC’s commitment to best-of-breed enterprise technology.

“Offering an all-flash version of this blockbuster product not only rounds out our robust portfolio of flash offerings, but provides customers with an easy way to capture the capacity, performance and efficiency benefits of software-defined storage without breaking the bank,” he says.

The ScaleIO Ready Node Runs on workload-optimized Dell PowerEdge rack servers that are designed to deliver exceptional performance, flexibility and scalability.

Ravi Pendekanti, SVP of Server Solutions and Product Management with Dell EMC, says that in order to realise the full promise of software-defined storage deployments, customers need hardware with high levels of reliability and energy efficiency.

“As well as the ability to monitor and provide updates at scale,” he says.

“With Dell EMC ScaleIO Ready Node running on Dell PowerEdge servers, organizations can confidently execute, monitor and scale efficiently to meet the high performance demands of their mission-critical workloads.”
