Taking a decades-old approach to storage—one that pre-dates virtualization—can keep you from realizing the benefits of the virtual data center.You need a storage architecture designed with your entireVMware infrastructure in mind—from servers and storage to networking and the cloud. Dell Fluid Data storage is designed from the ground up to address the unique challenges of virtualized data centers. This innovative, next generation storage architecture will help you reach a new level of efficiency in your virtual data center.Solving problems legacy storage vendors are still working on.Architected in the last decade with virtualization patents to address every need in a virtual server environment A Fluid Data architecture includes four areas of storage, each with different attributes: production, offsite recovery, archive and backup.Our Compellent and EqualLogic products provide virtualized, scale-out storage. Automated tiering and migration across disk/RAID types. Thin provisioned volumes and data copies. Non-disruptive upgradability, seamless scalability. While the PowerVault family includes object-based archiving. Scalable, cost-efModular storage solutions and innovative licensing scale on demand without downtime or forklift upgradesWith innovative Fluid Data technology, you can intelligently manage data throughout its lifecycle and automatically tier block and file data from end user to cloud
As a result of our innovative approach, we integrate tightly with all Vmware features including vSphere, View, VASA, and SRMMeaning you can accelerate virtualization across your environmentExperience truly comprehensive bi-directional infrastructure management–from desktops to servers to the cloudTake advantage of dozens of points of engineering integration to offload tasks to the SANWith Fluid Data storage, complex administration is automated and easyYour team can go from bare metal to new VM in a few steps
Dell Fluid Data solutions portfolio delivers a complete range of systems, software and services for every storage need in your virtual data centerFrom primary to archive and small business consolidation to large scale enterpriseWith Dell Storage, you can: Consolidate storageVirtualize DesktopsProtect and recover dataVirtualize Tier 1 ApplicationsBackup and Recover DataArchive and Retain DataRight-size storage capacity and performance for virtualized apps
