3. Dell Launches Its ‘Greatest Product Ever’: PowerStore; As Well As ‘Home-Run’ PowerScale
Dell will look to turn around its storage business in 2021 through two new next-generation storage architectures: PowerStore and PowerScale.
Launched this year, PowerStore is arguably Dell’s biggest storage launch in years with Dell’s Scannell going to far as saying, ‘PowerStore is perhaps the greatest product we’ve ever launched.”
PowerStore is Dell’s midrange all-flash storage platform that is a scale-up, scale-out container-based architecture with built-in future-proof technology. With built-in machine learning and automation, PowerStore is a programmable infrastructure that aims to streamline application development and reduce deployment time from days to seconds. The storage offering has a machine-learning engine to optimize performance and reduce cost by automating labor-intensive processes, while it also contain Dell’s new PowerStoreOS software.
Also launched this year was Dell’s new all-flash, NVMe storage line: PowerScale.
Called a “home run” by channel partners, PowerScale looks to create a new industry standard for how businesses capture and capitalize on unstructured data such as videos, images, social media content and documents. PowerScale’s OneFS operating system introduces new software capabilities including enhanced data reduction technology, support for Ansible, Kubernetes and Red Hat’s OpenShift, as well as access to Amazon’s S3 object storage.
