Dell EMC Brings Flash Support to Unity Storage Systems

Dell EMC is offering free software updates to the Dell EMC Unity family of storage systems, adding intelligent inline compression and support for the latest flash drives. Unity All-Flash now provides up to 384TB in a 2U rack through new support for 15.36TB 3D NAND (SAS Flash 4) flash drives, doubling Unity’s drive density. In addition, the Unity 600(F) doubles the number of drives supported, increasing total usable capacity up to 10PB.

Dell EMC also announced integrated file tiering to the public cloud (including Virtustream), along with intelligent and predictive analytics through its new CloudIQ cloud-based storage analytics platform.

In addition, Dell EMC has introduced a new generation of Dell EMC Data Domain protection storage systems that are flash-enabled to deliver greater speed and scalability as well as enhanced protection for virtual environments. The company says that Data Domain Cloud Tier establishes Data Domain as the only protection storage to natively tier de-duplicated data to public, private, or hybrid clouds for long-term retention, including Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage and Virtustream Storage Cloud.

The new Data Domain family features four new models: DD6300, DD6800, DD9300 and DD9800. The DD6300 is a turnkey, all-in-one appliance designed specifically for small and midrange customers.
