1 Results based on March 2013 internal Dell testing with actual MTBF calculated from a run time total of 26 million+ hours (accumulated by 6724 systems). Run time and availability impacting failures for a 6 month period from 8/2012 thru 1/2013. Estimated weighted average MTTR of 6.6 hours for 12 hour part SLA. Actual performance will vary based on configuration, usage and manufacturing variability.

Disparate data protection for smaller operations

Benefit from ease of deployment and management, with a solution designed to scale with your business. Our versatile Dell PowerVault MD solutions are optimized for smaller-scale storage consolidation and virtualization projects, and are ideal for Remote Office/Branch Office environments.
  • PowerVault MD3 iSCSI and Fibre Channel SANs ensure a high availability of data and protection features can be tailored to meet the needs of your environment.
  • Virtual Disk Copy (VDC) provides full replication of an existing disk at any point in time, and reads and writes are supported while creating a virtual copy.
  • Additionally, remote replication provides data protection by replicating data to any global location via either Fibre Channel or over a common IP network.
