10 Jun 13

Dell has unveiled new storage solutions and expanded analytics capabilities, designed to help businesses improve their IT performance, support data insights and reduce overall costs.

As businesses work to keep pace with massive data growth, Dell says many also are turning to IT systems optimised for performance.

Analyst firm IDC projects the worldwide big data technology and services market will grow at a 31.7% compound annual growth rate with revenues reaching $23.8 billion by 2016.

Infrastructure technology for big data deployments is expected to grow the fastest with the storage segment expected to increase at the highest rate, 53.4%.

“While businesses continue to look to drive cost and complexity out of their data centres, they also are charged with finding flexible IT solutions that provide the optimal performance for the many kinds of workloads and applications they manage,” says Marius Haas, president, Dell Enterprise Solutions.

“Dell is best positioned with an end-to-end data centre approach that provides open, scalable, integrated and automated solutions designed to simplify and generate the most value out of an IT investment.

"With today’s portfolio updates, Dell builds on our innovative storage capabilities while allowing customers to pack more storage in significantly less space and benefit from optimised performance for the most demanding environments."

Hass says the solutions:

· Raises the bar for data-intensive application performance with new flash-optimised storage solution that drives down the cost of flash solutions by up to 75%.

· Reduces data centre footprint and costs with densest storage enclosure from any major SAN vendor in its class

· Offers greater scaling and reduces unnecessary storage capacity with next generation Dell Fluid File System for data-intensive environments

· Provides flexibility with expanded analytics support for customers turning stored data into business insights
