Dell: High-Density Cold Storage
Dell introduced the DCS1300, a high-density, rack-mount storage solution, which uses one Avoton-based System-on-Chip in one node to control the storage capacity of that node plus three other storage-only nodes. The goal, according to Dell, is to provide mass storage capacity at the lowest possible cost per GB.
The Dell DCS1300 can be used to configure up to 1,920 TBs of storage per rack at a cost of under 10 cents per GB. It is targeted at Dell's hyperscale computing customers.
Samples of the Dell DCS1300 are slated to ship soon, with full production slated for early next year.
