Dell Technologies has today unveiled the new Dell PowerVault ME5, a series of three new entry storage models that are purpose-built and optimized for SAN & DAS and poised to address a wide range of business challenges for small and medium enterprises.
This includes keeping pace with data growth, improving operational simplicity, supporting newer and higher value workloads and delivering business outcomes much faster. PowerVault ME5 does this with a modern software design that offers twice the performance, throughput, capacity and memory of its PowerVault ME4 predecessor. PowerVault ME5 is set to help SMEs boost productivity and economic growth by improving their access to data and staying competitive.
“Our global Sales and Channel Partners have catapulted Dell Technologies into a leadership position within the entry storage segment with over 53,000 systems spread over 26,000+ very satisfied PowerVault customers” says Product Marketing Lead for Dell Technologies, Shannon Champion.
“Dell’s success can be credited to its legacy of knowing how to design cost-efficient solutions that can address numerous SMB challenges of data storage growth, management simplicity, performance and data protection. Significant technology investments coupled with a keen understanding of the customer’s business needs enables Dell to balance performance and cost for price conscious small and medium businesses.”
Champion continues: “PowerVault storage has always brought customers an all-inclusive experience of simplified operations, PowerEdge Server compatibility, rich data services, performance and cloud-based storage analytics. One of the reasons IT organizations will find PowerVault ME5 storage attractive is the overall management simplicity that starts with PowerVault Manager – a single ME5 array management (HTML5) GUI with intuitive user navigation and supported scripting with either a Redfish/Swordfish REST or CLI APIs.”
“PowerVault ME5 is also supported within Dell’s Open Management Enterprise (OME) framework that’s especially useful when PowerVault is installed alongside Dell networks, servers and other Dell infrastructure in a data center. Finally, customers with ProSupport Services for PowerVault ME5 can access CloudIQ at no additional cost. CloudIQ is Dell’s cloud based AIOPs that uses telemetry, machine learning and other algorithms to provide users with notifications and predictive analytics indicating the operational health of the array, remediation advice, anomalies, capacity projections, reclaimable storage, and more.”
PowerVault ME5’s design is highly suited to support a broad set of application workloads including High Performance Computing File Systems with BeeGFS, PixStore and NFS file systems, Safety and Security (CCTV at the Edge), Microsoft and VMware Virtualization, up to 500 Virtual Desktops, select Edge use cases (Oil and Gas Exploration and Cloud Gaming) and many more without compromising performance or availability SLAs. PowerVault ME5 is also well suited for the Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) with its OEM-ready design.
For SMEs looking to simplify their IT operations, reduce risk and deploy faster and more scalable storage platforms, the PowerVault ME5 arrays remain the simplest, most cost-effective way to meet their infrastructure requirements and desired outcomes.
Available now in various configurations, Dell PowerVault ME5 can provide a powerful, scalable and economical solution for businesses in need of an entry level storage.
