Dell Debuts 3 New Storage Systems

During a time when managing disparate storage systems is key for luring
customers, Dell Monday
debuted three new storage
systems
geared for small- and medium-sized businesses and corporate
workgroups.

In the interest of supporting heterogeneous
environments, Dell’s PowerVault 775N, 770N and 725N network-attached storage
(NAS) systems enable the management of data between applications running
Microsoft Windows, Novell NetWare, UNIX, Linux, and Apple Macintosh
operating environments.

Dell claims the NAS systems can be set up in roughly 15 minutes with minimal
IT expertise, and can be managed remotely using intuitive Web-based
management software.

The concept of storage systems that accommodate software from a variety of
competing vendors has become increasingly important, as systems rivals such
as Dell, IBM, HP and Sun all practice it: they are willing to put aside competitive
fires to please CIOs who desire quick, easily manageable storage systems
that are flexible and won’t balk at running certain types of software. Cost
efficiency, in these trying economic times, is also a huge issue for the
CIOs, who abhor having to spend additional money on software that may not
work on their hardware systems.

Powered by Intel Xeon chips and Windows, the PowerVault 770N and 775N
systems are geared for file sharing, e-mail, multimedia, software
distribution and application server support. The systems can accommodate up
to 17 terabytes (TB) with the addition of SCSI drives, or up to 40TB by
connecting to Dell EMC storage either as a direct-attached array or through
a storage area network (SAN). This SAN Gateway allows customers to expand
their networks by adding to existing storage resources. Both systems offer
I/O slots, redundant power and Embedded Remote Access Management utilities
to MAKE WAY FOR fast, easy system configuration.

Geared for small offices, the PowerVault 725N is fitted with Intel Pentium 4
processors and ServerWorks’ Grand Champion SL core logic technology to offer
the performance and scalability growing businesses require. The centralized
network storage system supports up to 3GB of DDR SDRAM and dual-gigabit
ports for load-balancing and failover capabilities.

The 2U PowerVault 775N and 5U PowerVault 770N for rack and tower
environments are now available, starting at $4,999. The 725N will begin
shipping this month, starting at $1,799.
