Dell EMC Storage SCV3000 All Flash Storage Efficiency Guarantee

4:1 All-Flash Storage Efficiency Guarantee

SC Series arrays are efficient in ANY configuration (all-flash, hybrid and HDD) – but we know many businesses are especially concerned about expense when deploying all-flash arrays. That’s why we’re taking the risk out of AFAs by guaranteeing 4:1 efficiency for all-flash SC configurations. Dell EMC promises our all-flash arrays will provide an effective logical storage capacity at least four times the physical capacity of your purchased drives – or we’ll give you more drives at no charge.*
