Dell EMC And Friends Showcases Latest In On-Prem, Cloud Storage
Dell EMC is expanding much of its storage portfolio with an eye on helping customers and their channel partners better manage data in cloud and other fast-changing environments. And it is counting on some of its vendor partners to help it in its quest.
During the recently-concluded Dell Technologies World conference, the company unveiled major enhancements to its midrange Unity, flagship PowerMax, and unstructured data Isilon lines, and introduced a new range of cloud storage services. It also unveiled a new line of data protection software and appliances.
Dell EMC is making the cloud a more central part of its storage offerings with the introduction of its first Cloud Storage Services, and is working with Intel to bring Optane dual-port enterprise server-class memory to its flagship PowerMax line. Dell EMC also introduced its new PowerProtect data protection software and appliance family.
However, the company was not yet ready to roll out its upcoming midrange storage array slated to eventually replace multiple current midrange lines. That new array, for now known as "Midrange.next," is likely to get its formal unveiling some time before year-end.
For a look at that mystery "Midrange.next" array, and at the technology openly touted at Dell Technologies World, check out our slideshow.
