Dell Introduces PowerFlex Software-Defined Storage

Today, Dell Technologies introduced PowerFlex software-defined storage. The PowerFlex family, previously known as VxFlex, is now part of our Power portfolio, helping deliver consistent, predictable outcomes that drive business forward.

PowerFlex delivers sophisticated high-performance, scalable, resilient storage services, and its unmatched flexibility allows customers to use it in disaggregated, bare metal or multi-hypervisor deployments. It unlocks massive performance with the ability to scale capacity, IO performance and throughput linearly to 1000s of nodes and achieve six-nines (99.9999%) availability.

Thanks to PowerFlex’s software-defined architecture, disruptive and costly data migrations are a thing of the past. Nodes are easily swapped out with no downtime or performance/availability impact. This means no more fork-lift upgrades and brute-force data migrations. Customers can evolve their infrastructure as needed to meet key business objectives while freeing up IT organizations to focus on business-critical applications.

This release also brings a number of new data services that help our customers achieve predictable outcomes and greater availability. Notable new features include:

  • Replication and Disaster Recovery: Native asynchronous replication and fully operational disaster recovery with RPO as low as 30 seconds.
  • Secure Snapshots: For industries with specific corporate governance and compliance requirements, including healthcare and finance.
