Extend Your Storage Offerings with the New Dell EMC ECS EX-Series
- September 14, 2018
As the digital economy extends its reach, organizations are beginning to appreciate the value of data. Data is playing an increasingly important role in determining whether organizations will thrive in a digital-first world or not. According to IDC’s prediction, worldwide spending on digital transformation technologies is growing at 18.1% through 2021 to more than $1.8 trillion¹. To truly unlock the value of data, however, your customers need a fundamentally different approach to IT, as traditional infrastructure was not built to handle the magnitude of data. This is precisely why we built Dell EMC ECS, the modern object-storage platform that brings cloud scale and economics to our customers’ datacenters.
We are introducing the new ECS EX-Series platform, the next-generation ECS hardware that can help open up new sales opportunities for you to up-sell support and consultancy services.
ECS brings public cloud-like scalability and flexibility that can meet your customers’ data storage needs of today and tomorrow. The EX-Series release consists of two brand new offerings:
|1. Greater Flexibility: The EX-series provides organizations with unparalleled flexibility in starting with just the capacity they need, and growing as their needs change in the future.
2. Centera Modernization: With a minimum starting capacity of 60TB, the EX-series can help your customers accelerate Centera modernization efforts. Thanks to its native support of the CAS API, ECS supports seamless migration from Centera. It also honours governance, compliance and retention features that Centera customers rely on.
3. Future-Proof: The new EX-series provides open-standard based switches with up to 100GbE I/O per port connectivity and the ability to tune performance requirements.
4. Storage for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF): ECS enables developers to provision storage, providing a flexible, API accessible and persistent object storage system for PCF apps.
EX-Series offers you the flexibility to grow your business based on your customer needs. You can now offer your customers:
