Leading the flash storage revolution

We are one of the fastest-growing providers of solid-state drive (SSD) storage1 because we approach flash differently — redefining storage economics and putting flash innovation within your reach by:

  • Optimizing price and performance through leveraging different types of flash drives, including SLC, MLC and first-to-market high-density TLC.
  • Accelerating applications and maximizing cost savings with auto-tiering software that places data in the right place at the right time.
  • Delivering a single, scalable fully virtualized software platform that can quickly incorporate future technologies.
From our award-winning all-flash arrays to our hybrid SSD solutions, we can offer a flash storage system for your cost and performance needs.

Benefits

Flash is reshaping the enterprise storage landscape — and we’re transforming the way flash is driving enterprise storage. From our all-flash arrays to our hybrid SSD solutions, we’re pushing design innovation to improve performance and setting price points that make enterprise-level flash storage affordable for large companies and small businesses, too. Keep your business-critical workloads speeding along with low-latency, low-TCO Dell flash storage.

Enterprise-level flash storage for any budget


Starting at just $25,000, our all-flash arrays (AFAs) offer the lowest dollar/GB compared to other major vendors — both in terms of raw and usable flash capacity2. And by intelligently prioritizing performance-hungry hot data to flash and colder data to spinning disk, our hybrid arrays help you achieve up to 10 times the cost savings3. With IDC predicting the hybrid market to be nearly 10 times bigger than the all-flash market4, it’s no wonder storage pros picked Dell as the #1 flash provider5.

What’s different about our flash storage


We’re set apart by more than just our pricing. We developed the first enterprise array to auto-tier data across SLC, MLC and now TLC flash, with software that dynamically provisions and reoptimizes RAID levels across all drives. This innovative data placement enables us to deliver enterprise-class performance and sub-millisecond latency with fewer tier 1 drives — just one of the reasons our SC4020 is the highest-performing array under $75,0006.

Optimize your investment with the lowest flash TCO


Top performance for a lower price adds up to a dramatic return on your investment. With a total cost of ownership up to 54 percent less than competitors7, it’s easy to see why StorageReview.com wrote that our SC4020 “packs the punch of a much more expensive array.” No matter the size of your environment or workload need, we have a flash solution that can increase your data center efficiency.
