Server SAN made simple
Dell EMC ScaleIO software on a PowerEdge server for software-defined, scale-out server SAN.
Extreme performance in software-defined storage
Dell EMC ScaleIO Ready Node is high-performance software-defined block storage powered by ScaleIO, with:
- 8x better IOPS compared to traditional SAN
- Linearly scaling performance as nodes are added
- Automatic optimization in the background
Unparalleled flexibilityDifferent workloads require infrastructure and software flexibility. You need the flexibility to choose the right solution now and adaptability to evolve as your needs change. You can select nodes optimized for different levels of capacity or performance, and mix and match different types of nodes in a single system, with:
- Configuration flexibility, with a choice of chassis types, including all-flash and hybrid
- Hypervisor- and OS-agnostic setup, using significantly lower resources
- Networking independence, that fits within your existing environment and provides the flexibility to procure your own switches
Massive scalabilityUnlike traditional storage systems, as the number of nodes grows, so does throughput and IOPS, eliminating bottlenecks. Performance scales linearly and cost/performance rates improve with growth. Dell EMC ScaleIO provides the exceptional ability to adapt and scale the infrastructure to support evolving application requirements and business priorities while lowering costs.
Compelling economicsDell EMC ScaleIO Ready Nodes are flexible and can scale as your business needs change. Storage and compute resources can be increased or decreased, together or independently, whenever the need arises. As nodes are added to a cluster, the ScaleIO software automatically rebalances with zero downtime. This means capacity planning and migrations are practically eliminated. Dell EMC ScaleIO Ready Nodes offer:
- Efficient infrastructure with 50% better power, cooling and space efficiency than traditional SAN
- Pay-as-you-grow infrastructure with no need to pre-pay for products you may not need
- Server-based SAN capabilities to avoid dedicated storage components
