Dell/EMC Roll Out 3 New Storage Systems

Dell this week made available three networked storage systems in the Dell/EMC product lineup that replace three previous models.

The new products are the Dell/EMC CX300, CX500 and CX700. Dell officials position the products as simplifying environments, reducing costs and positioning customers for scalability.

The CX300 is for small data centers and departmental applications. Compared to the CX200, which it replaces, the new system boasts 100 percent more drive capacity (up to 60 drives) and 240 percent more bandwidth (680 MB/s). Dell says the system supports up to 50,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS). Using ATA drives, the system can hold up to 13.4 TB of data. The new model also adds support for snapshots.

The CX500, which replaces the CX400, is intended for midrange business-critical applications such as messaging and databases. It boasts a 100 percent increase over the CX400 in performance to 120,000 IOPS and in drive capacity to 120 drives. The CX500 scales to 28.4 TB with ATA drives.

The CX700 replaces the CX600 and is designed for large-scale database and transaction-intensive applications. Performance gets a 25 percent bump to 200,000 IOPS, and the system supports 256 servers, twice as many as the CX600. With ATA drives, the CX700 can store 58.4 TB of data.
