Dell has announced that its new enterprise class Dell Storage all-flash array (AFA) configurations starting at only $25,000 available globally. Along with this, the company will be offering lowest entry price for an all-flash mid-range solution by any major vendor.
Speaking about the same, Alan Atkinson, general manager, Dell Storage, said, “For years, price has been the number one barrier to enterprise flash adoption, and we’re knocking down these walls to make the high performance, reliability and smaller footprint of flash practical for almost any workload. As Dell continues to bring down the cost of enterprise class storage, we now offer customers the industry’s easiest to use and lowest cost entry point into mid-range, all-flash enterprise arrays.”
The new Dell Storage SC4020 AFA configurations offer an economical starting point for all-flash performance to support a wide range of applications and workloads. It comprises of six 480GB read-intensive SSDs for a total of 2.8 terabytes of raw capacity. Along with this, it also consists of 24 drive bays and dual controllers in a 2U chassis, plus all standard software, options, installation and three-years of Dell Copilot support.
The customers may increase their Dell Storage SC4020 AFA as an all-flash solution by adding additional read-intensive or write-intensive drives – or achieve additional cost savings at any time by automatically moving cold data to one or more optional tiers of traditional spinning disks.
