    Dell EMC SC7020 - A new level of Storage Center OS efficiency

    A new level of Storage Center OS efficiency

    SCOS 7 is a groundbreaking leap forward in the evolution of Dell EMC SC platform, offering diverse environment the ideal access point to deploy uniquely adaptable, future-ready storage solutions. New capabilities include:
    • Over 10:1 capacity savings with intelligent deduplication and compression*
    • Federated data control with Live Migrate
    • Seamless business continuity with Live Volume auto-failover between arrays
    • Federated management and cross-platform replication between SC and PS Series arrays
    • Quality-of-Service (QoS), VMware Virtual Volumes (VVols) support,iSCSI Datacenter Bridging (DCB)
    See individual spec sheets and product documentation for additional features and specific platform support.
    Dell EMC SC7020 - Self-optimizing, automated storage

    Self-optimizing, automated storage

    Based on actual use and application performance requirements, SC Series Data Progression automatically optimizes your drive tiers and RAID levels for performance and cost savings. By default, all new data is written to fastest Tier 1 drives at RAID 10 performance levels, then converted to economical RAID 5/6 for subsequent reads.

    As data ages, it’s moved to less expensive storage until it becomes active again. All-flash and hybrid arrays can leverage the unique attributes of write- and read-intensive SSDs in combination. Data is precisely where it’s needed, when it’s needed – the perfect combination of high IOPS and cost savings.
    Dell EMC SC7020 - Space savings in the data center

    Space savings in the data center

    SC Series delivers unprecedented levels of platform efficiency, along with comprehensive data reduction and:
    • Conservation of rack space for future growth
    • Smaller footprint, which benefits power and cooling expenses
    • Intelligent deduplication and compression for all storage tiers and drive types
    Operating costs are reduced with advanced features like volume-level QoS, VVols support and departmental “charge-back” reporting, allowing instant visibility and control of a multi-terabyte, multi-location environment.
    Dell EMC SC7020 - Data center automation with leading technology partner integrations

    Data center automation with leading technology partner integrations

    SC Series features a vast array of integration points with VMware, Microsoft, Oracle, OpenStack, IBM, CommVault, Symantec, VERITAS, Veeam and more. VMware® vSphere™ plug-in, vCenter™ SRM adapter and VAAI support help you manage storage and virtual machines together.

    With the introduction of Application Protection Manager for Oracle and now enhanced for the Linux® environment, you can create application-consistent Replays for Oracle® databases. Combined with Storage Center Data Instant Replay (DIR), it will ensure reliable application, consistent backup and recovery of Oracle and Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) enabled applications (Exchange, SQL and Hyper-V) and VMware virtual machines (VMs).

    Dell EMC SC7020 - Eliminate expense of managing separate systems

    Eliminate expense of managing separate systems

    Manage the SC7020 with the Dell EMC Storage Manager (DSM, formerly known as Enterprise Manager). It provides comprehensive monitoring and management of all local and remote SC Series arrays. Easy-to-use data replication and migration between platforms gives PS customers flexibility to add SC arrays to their environment when they choose.*

    DSM streamlines SAN administration and reduces operating costs with advanced features like volume-level QoS, VVOls support and departmental “charge-back” reporting. Powershell and REST management APIs allow you to integrate the SC7020 into your business workflows

    Dell EMC SC Series expansion enclosures

    Supporting up to 500 total drives and 3PB raw capacity in a single array, the SC7020 offers five supported expansion enclosures that you can mix and match depending on your specific performance, cost or density needs.

    Options are available for ultra-dense (84 drives in 5U) with the SC280 and new high-performance 12Gb SAS SC400 and SC420 enclosures. Adding a new enclosure is simple – the new drives can be automatically assimilated into the existing virtualized pool or set up as their own standalone pool. Data-in-place upgrades make it easy to change controllers and other key components, or migrate from legacy SC Series arrays.
