Dell Flash-Optimized Storage solutions enable IT administrators to target specific applications with optimized, high-performance, low-latency storage, resulting in more efficient VDI environments, OLTP, high-end structured databases (SAP, Oracle, SQL), and big data analytics. Combining the speed of flash SSDs with the capacity of HDDs has enabled faster access to hot data, while keeping cold data that is not critically needed on high-capacity HDDs. For easy management and maximized effectiveness, Dell Compellent software-based storage features automated intelligent data tiering between flash SSDs and the HDDs.  A major barrier toward all-flash or hybrid systems adoption has been cost, since flash traditionally has been more expensive per GB than HDD technology. Dell, however, is redefining the economics of enterprise storage with flash at the price of disk.*

Flash at the price of disk*

The innovative flash-optimized solutions from Dell offer up to approximately 2x the price advantage over competitive hybrid solutions and up to approximately 5x the price advantage over competitive all-flash solutions.* Now you can take full advantage of Dell software-based storage with automated intelligent data tiering. By cost-effectively keeping hot data on high-performance flash drives and cold data on high-capacity disk drives, you can reduce the cost of enterprise storage by optimizing performance for your data-intensive workloads without straining your budget or sacrificing capacity.
