Formally announced in August 2015, Dell Datacenter Scalable Solutions (DSS) is a new line of business within Dell‘s Enterprise Solutions organization created to meet the specific needs of web tech, telecommunications service providers, hosting companies, oil and gas, and research organizations.
For storage servers Dell is adding a new SC9000 storage array controller, based on Dell’s 13th generation of PowerEdge server hardware supporting 12Gbps SAS and over 3PB of storage. The product offers all-flash and hybrid flash configurations and the possibility of achieving over 385,000 IOPS.
The self-optimizing SC9000 provides more than three petabytes of raw capacity per array and scales-out even further in federated multi-array configurations with seamless volume movement among arrays.
The new Dell Storage Center 6.7 array software boosts overall South Carolina Series support for private clouds and other mission-critical applications.
During Dell World, the vendor unveiled the first products in its DSS family, alluded to during EnterpriseTech’s interview with Ashley Gorakhpurwalla, vice president and general manager of servers at Dell, earlier this month.
