Built for speed.
Drive large databases, ERP, HPC and other demanding workloads with 4-socket performance, scalable memory and powerful IO.
Unleash scalable performance
Expand IO capabilitiesGain up to 100 percent more IOPS performance than previous-generation PowerEdge servers with the H730P PowerEdge RAID Controller (PERC), a high-performance RAID controller for direct-attached storage (DAS). Taking full advantage of 12Gbps SAS throughput, this PERC enables workload-optimized performance, with RAID6 and RAID60 as standard features. Agentless management through iDRAC7 enables PERC configuration, deployment, updating and monitoring through a simple GUI or command line interface.

With Dell Compellent, Dell EqualLogic and Dell PowerVault, we have created a comprehensive and innovative portfolio of storage products, all of which are easy to deploy, manage and grow. Whether you use network attached storage (NAS), direct attached storage (DAS), internet SCSI (iSCSI) or Fibre Channel (FC), Dell has a product that can meet your business needs and reduce the cost and complexity of storage.
|The Value of Dell Storage: |
Dell’s open, standards-based solutions let customers of all sizes integrate new technologies without sacrificing performance or their existing IT investments.
|Direct-Attached Storage: |
The Dell PowerVault MD storage family offers easy and economical expansion for Dell PowerEdge servers enabling high availability and scalability for demanding business applications.
|Disk-to-Disk Backup |
Due to expanding volumes of data that must be backed up and protected along with shrinking backup windows, many IT departments have moved to or added disk-based backups.
NAS is a specialized storage server with its own IP address that is made available to multiple clients and servers on a local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN).
The Dell DX Object Storage Platform is designed to intelligently access, store, protect and distribute fixed digital content.
Storage Area Network
A storage area network (SAN) is a network of shared storage devices, such as disk storage arrays and tape automation
Considered the first and last line of defense against data loss, tape and removable disks can be used for long-term data storage and backup.
Unified Storage is a term that describes the ability to manage both file- and block-level data.
