Every business has a need for real-time data access, enterprise mobility and pervasive virtualization, so it’s no surprise that storage growth is expected to accelerate past 60% per year through 2020. The only way to tame the beast is to take a new approach; one that gives an unfair advantage by bringing together best practices in data management under a single umbrella – in this case Dell’s Intelligent Data Management (IDM) solutions as embodied in the latest Dell™ EqualLogic™ SANs.

EqualLogic’s automation can help save enterprises up to 45 days per year on common storage tasks and accelerate virtual machine deployments by over 70%. On top of this with automated storage tiering and intelligent load-balancing across multiple tiers, organisations are able to achieve 50% cost savings as compared to a single Tier-1 SAN and up to 76% reduction in network complexity. And by optimising storage functions within the virtual data centre EqualLogic’s snapshotting and copying operations can help to boost overall performance by 4 to 6 times and accelerate tasks like provisioning virtual machines by over 70%. Dell™ EqualLogic™ has even exceeded our expectations. We’re proud to announce that Dell’s EqualLogic PS6010XVS has been voted InfoWorld’s best storage system of 2011.

Transform your business with Dell™ EqualLogic™ Dell has the tools and experience that can help your organisation achieve the full value of your IT investments, keep protecting vital enterprise data, and ensure high business continuity, maintaining flexibility and scalability.

Improve your IT Performance We optimise the compute, processor, networking and storage resources that already exist in your IT infrastructure. Plus we’ll increase the overall utilisation by eliminating siloed or stranded resources. This reduces the total cost of ownership through standards-based solutions, simplified operations, virtualised storage and seamless scalability.
