  2. 2. Data G rowth The Digital Universe will double every 18 months Of which 95% is unstructured data 1 Of which 90% is never accessed after creation 2 Sources:2 Confidential 1IDC, The Expanding Digital Universe 2Measurement and Analysis of Large-Scale Netw ork File System Workloads, UC Santa Cruz
  3. 3. Customer Pains in Detail Growing Data and Shrinking Budgets • 1800 New Exabytes by 2011. 3.5x more HCLS in 2012 vs. 2009 • Percentage of IT budgets for storage increasing from 10 to 17%* • Customers treating all data equal Increased Retention or Compliance Policies • 80% will have to produce content in response to litigation • Need to quickly discover and produce information • Infrastructure spending for info governance to reach $21.5B Custom ers are Seeking Intelligent Data Managem ent solutions Tiered Storage Build Out Technology Refresh Backup Redesign Consolidation Virtualization Adoption 0% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 35% Source: The Info Pro (June 2009).

All data is not the same Secure & Replicate & Dell helps you expand your data management strategy by: Protect Distribute Create Det ermining Archive • Ident ify and creat e rich met adat a about your informat ion Relevance • Eliminat e unnecessary dat a • St ore your informat ion based on it s at t ribut es Reducing Active Semi- Act ive Static • Policy based aut omat ion t hat moves, prot ect s, reduces, & removes dat a Complexit y • Consolidat e unst ruct ured dat a on a foundat ional plat form w here you can 10% 20% 70% non- disrupt ively expand capacit y & replace/ ret ire nodes • Reduce t he foot print , pow er cost s, & WAN bandw idt h Ext ract ing • Solut ions t hat allow you t o keep more dat a online Value • Tools and processes for rapid discovery & ret rieval Most is unstructured • Leverage online dat a for analysis, informat ion & compliance5 Confidential
  6. 6. What Does it Mean? Long- term unstructured data retention & governance introduces unique storage requirementsScale – Must be able to store billions of files on 1,000’s of disks – Can exceed file system & backup constraints and capabilitiesManageability & Accessibility – Large # of disks require new management and recovery paradigm – Highest availability requirements over large geographic footprint – Must manage content lifecycle – including deletion - automaticallyCost – Requires lower TCO both to acquire and manage – Must be capable of preserving content for years and decades Dell Confidential
  7. 7. Object Storage• What is it? – O bjec ts are data AND assoc iated metadata c ombined – The storage software assigns a unique ID to eac h O bjec t – ID’s are stored ac ross a flat address spac e. There is no hierarc hy.• What are the benefits? – Intelligent Management: automated data management including retention, distribution and deletion – Massive Scale: up to billions of objects and Petabytes of data – affordably – Powerful Access: overcomes traditional storage limitations and enables extracting value from data Enables you to reduce cost, complexity and risk 7 Dell Confidential
  8. 8. Object Storage Example If this is a File THIS is an Object then…. File Name: CATSCANJQSMITH Object ID: 12345 Created By: Technician 1 File Type: .DICOM Created On: 01- 01- 2001 Patient Name: John Q.

  12. 12. A better w ay to access, store and distribute unstructured content• Allows you to keep more data online and accessible to leverage digital assets• Automated and secure policy- based retention, replication, distribution & deletion• Self- replication and self- healing to minimize IT staff demands• Standards- based x86 hardware and integrated software in an end- to- end solution• Continuous migration and investment protection with non- disruptive security and capacity upgrades and node replacement/ retirement• Standard HTTP interface with future support for CIFS/ NFS and XAM• Selectable data immutability for compliance needs• Solutions for health care, archive, content management, eDiscovery, tiered storage, and cloud 12 Dell Confidential – For NDA use only
  13. 13. Flexible entry and scaling options Start with 2 storage nodes, either the 4 or 12- drive versions, then scale- out capacity and performance with either to meet your unique needs• 12- Drive Storage Node (DX6012S) • 4- Drive Storage Node (DX6004S) – 3 to 24TB raw capacity/ node – 1 to 8TB raw capacity/ node – Ideal for larger deployments – Enables placing a cluster in remote or branch offices – Good for large file sizes – Can serve as a central office cluster – Low entry point into DX solution – Can enhance performance for small file sizes versus DX6012S 13 Dell Confidential – For NDA use only
