Optimizing Scale and Availability for Enterprises and the Cloud

Storage Center 5.4 marks the most comprehensive product release in Compellent history. The new Compellent virtualized storage allows enterprises to rapidly adapt to changing business requirements. Its a big step up from a next-generation hardware platform and has a dynamic business continuity suite. Organizations can now leverage the latest industry standards, from 10 Gb iSCSI and FCoE front end connectivity to 2.5" or 3.5" 6 Gb SAS drives and enclosures. A new Series 40 controller boosts performance by 25% for demanding applications. And Live Volume software delivers high availability and continuous access to data by enabling transparent volume migration between two Compellent components.

Optimizing Efficiency and Agility for Enterprise and the Cloud

Data has become the fuel that drives business acceleration. At the same time this is making organizations today extremely reliant on data storage. You need a way to manage data differently in order for it to be put in the right place at the right time for the right cost.

In 2005, Compellent introduced technology that changed everything. Innovation that defied the boundaries of conventional storage. We call it, Fluid Data. And now that Dell and Compellent have joined forces, Fluid Data will redefine the data center.

As Dell Compellent, we remain committed to shaking up the status quo. More importantly, we remain committed to enterprise storage solutions that drive efficiency, flexibility, availability, and scalability. Storage that grows with your business and adapts to constant change. That’s Fluid Data. And with Dell behind it, you can expect a whole new era of accelerated innovation.
