Fluid Data Storage Solution From Dell Compellent

Manage and virtualize your data efficiently

Dell Compellent Storage Center delivers optimized efficiency, agility and resiliency to scale on a single platform and secure data against downtime and disaster with the multi-protocol Dell Compellent Storage Center featuring Fluid Data technology.
Dell Compellent Storage Center Efficiency

Efficiency

Dell Compellent Storage Center is an enterprise data storage array that delivers high performance with fewer drives, power and space. In fact, with Fluid Data storage, your cost per gigabyte can actually decrease as you grow.
  • Storage virtualization — storage is virtualized at the drive level, creating an ultra-efficient, high-performance pool of storage shared by all servers and applications.
  • Thin provisioning — virtual volumes of any size are provisioned upfront, yet physical capacity is only consumed on write.
  • Automated tiered storage — using granular real-time intelligence, snapshots and inactive data automatically move to lower-cost drives, while new writes and active data remain on high-performance drives.
Dell Compellent Storage Center Agility

Agility

Dell Compellent Storage Center forms a solid foundation for flexible grid storage, allowing you to scale up and out with dynamic business continuity. What’s more, you can do it all without downtime or disruption.
  • Technology independence — mix and match the latest drive and interconnect technologies, and easily add new technologies as they become available.
  • Non-disruptive architecture — add capacity, dynamically change system configuration and initiate new functionality online without disrupting operations or suspending data access.
  • Unified storage management — easily manage your entire storage infrastructure and save time and effort through built-in automation.
  • Dynamic business continuity — non-disruptively migrate volumes between storage arrays and data centers, creating an on-demand cloud infrastructure.

Dell Compellent Storage Center Resiliency

Resiliency

The Dell Compellent Storage Center enables you to continuously protect data against downtime and disaster—without the need for full-volume clones, capacity pre-allocation or high-speed data links. Fully redundant hardware and advanced failover features help to ensure high availability.
  • Space-efficient snapshots — once an initial snapshot is taken, only incremental changes in data need to be captured, allowing you to take continuous snapshots for near-instant recovery to any point in time.
  • Thin replication — cost-effectively replicate data synchronously or asynchronously over Fibre Channel or IP connections. Only subsequent changes are replicated following initial site synchronization.
  • Highly-available architecture — deliver uninterrupted data access with clustered controllers, automated failover, dual paths from servers to drives, virtualized ports, and fully redundant power supplies and fans.

Automatic data tiering

Storage Center 6.4 Data Progression has been enhanced to support multiple tiers of SSDs, which ensures that all writes go into Tier 1, RAID 10, SLC SSDs for increased performance. Additionally, Data Progression moves read-only data to Tier 2, RAID 5, MLC SSDs to ensure cost-optimized read performance and free up Tier 1 for writes. This provides built-in, extremely granular intelligence that automatically tiers data and optimizes performance while still protecting your data. SC6.4 Data Progression dynamically moves data between SSD tiers within the flash-optimized SC220 solution and places inactive data on the high capacity HDD drives within the SC220, SC200 or the ultradense SC280 enclosures, all within a single array.

Dell/Compellent Storage Center SAN: Intelligent, automated software

Dell/Compellent Storage Center SAN: Dynamic Capacity: thin provisioning

Dynamic Capacity: thin provisioning

Built into every Dell Compellent Storage Center system, thin provisioning delivers efficient storage utilization. Our advanced thin provisioning, called Dynamic Capacity, completely separates storage allocation from utilization, enabling users to allocate any size volume up front yet only consume physical capacity on write. You can even reclaim capacity that is no longer in use by applications, automatically reduce the space needed for virtual OS volumes and convert traditional volumes on existing storage to thin-provisioned capacity.

Data Progression: Automated tiered storage

Based on actual use and performance requirements, Dell Compellent Data Progression automatically classifies and migrates data to the optimum tier and RAID level. All new data is written to Tier 1, RAID 10, for the highest write performance, yet snapshots automatically move to the lowest tier and most cost-effective RAID level within 24 hours. The most active blocks of data remain on high-performance SSD, Fiber Channel or SAS drives, while inactive blocks dynamically migrate to lower-cost, high-capacity NL-SAS drives. With Data Progression, organizations can dramatically reduce ongoing costs of storage.

Data Instant Replay: Space-efficient snapshots

Dell Compellent Data Instant Replay enables organizations to take thousands of continuous snapshots to speed recovery to any point in time. Fluid Data technology doesn’t require full-volume clones — not even to provide a base snapshot. Instead, after first write an initial snapshot is taken of that write data only. Subsequently, only incremental changes in data are captured and the system uses real-time intelligence to create virtual pointers between all associated blocks. Stored on lower-cost drives to free up Tier 1 capacity, in most cases these readable/writable snapshots can be used to recover any size volume to any server in less than 10 seconds.

Remote Instant Replay: Thin replication

Dell Compellent thin replication technology, called Remote Instant Replay, leverages space-efficient snapshots between local and remote sites to deliver a cost-effective disaster recovery solution. After initial site synchronization, only incremental changes in data need to be replicated regularly, cutting hardware, bandwidth and administration costs. You can choose between replicating data over Fiber Channel or native IP connections, depending on your unique business requirements.

Live Volume: Dynamic business continuity

Dell Compellent Live Volume enables organizations to move volumes on demand between Storage Center arrays within a local storage grid. All migration occurs transparently while applications remain online. And the functionality is fully integrated into the virtualized storage platform, eliminating the need for additional hardware or server-side agents. Live Volume supports any virtualized server environment. In fact, migrated volumes automatically map to associated hosts regardless of physical location to Dell complement leading virtual machine movement engines.



Dell Compellent Storage Center: Live Volume: dynamic business continuity
