Dell Technologies has announced the launch of a powerful and scalable storage solution, Dell PowerVault ME5, for high-value small-to-medium business (SMB) workloads. The latest resource is a series of three new entry storage models that have been purpose-built and optimized for SAN and DAS.
PowerVault ME5 aims to address a wide array of SMB challenges including keeping pace with data growth, enhancing operational simplicity, supporting newer and higher value workloads, and offering efficient business outcomes. It will address these challenges with the help of a modern software design offering "twice the performance, throughput, capacity and memory of its PowerVault ME4 predecessor - without compromise."
The latest solution will aid SMBs in enhancing productivity and economic growth by refining their access to data and staying competitive. It is supported within Dell's Open Management Enterprise (OME) framework particularly useful when PowerVault is installed alongside Dell networks, servers, and other Dell infrastructure in a data center.
Talking about Dell PowerVault ME5, COO, TIM AG, Jörg Eilenstein stated:
Dell PowerVault ME5 provides our resellers with significant refresh revenue while our customers will realize significant performance, capacity and throughput gains helping them achieve their business goals.
Users with ProSupport Services for PowerVault ME5 can access CloudIQ, Dell's cloud-based AIOPs that employs telemetry, machine learning, and other algorithms to deliver notifications and predictive analytics demonstrating the operational health of the array, remediation advice, anomalies, capacity projections, reclaimable storage, and so forth, at no extra charges.
Its design has been developed to support a wide range of application workloads, without compromising performance or availability SLAs, such as high-performance computing file systems with BeeGFS, PixStore and NFS file systems, safety and security (CCTV at the Edge), Microsoft and VMware Virtualization, up to 500 virtual desktops, and select edge use cases (oil and gas exploration and cloud gaming).
Starting at $12,000, Dell PowerVault ME5 with valid configurations has made entry storage "powerful, scalable and economical."
