Dell announces new networking and storage solutions

Firm uses Dell World to reveal new product releases.

By Joe Curtis

Dell used its annual event to announce a raft of new technology developments for the data centre this week.

The company, taken private by founder Michael Dell to the tune of $25bn in October, stressed its ‘end to end’ approach with a number of new releases encompassing storage and network solutions aimed at improving campus performance and reducing TCO.

The company recently told CBR it is the ‘world’s largest startup’, and appears to be focusing on enterprise solutions as it seeks to innovate in the latest chapter of its existence.

Its central storage announcement concerns the new generation of its Dell EqualLogic range, which Dell claimed offers flash at the price of spinning disk technology, while maximising the potential of SSD.

The six models are aimed to allow customers to scale from small environments to large data centres, with the PS6210 model providing up to three times higher performance than its predecessors and four times the memory, according to the company.

"Dell continues to pioneer new storage economics in response to customer needs to address the massive growth of performance-hungry applications while seeking affordable storage to support the rise of unstructured data, such as audio, video and digital images," said Alan Atkinson, VP of Dell Storage.

Its latest campus solutions surround the increasing trend of BYOD, with Dell claiming companies are not prepared for the extent of mobile working possible with their current campus network architectures.
