In object storage, deduplication and unified storage areas
Dell has unveiled Intelligent Data Management offerings that address three storage technology areas such as object storage, deduplication and unified storage.
The company said that the new offerings including comprehensive services and systems, share principles based on integrated design, automated data management and partnered ecosystem.
According to Dell, the DX Object Storage Solution, built on peer-scaling architecture using industry standards-based hardware and integrated software, is designed to access, store and distribute files or other digital content, from archiving to the cloud. It helps customers to identify and retrieve information by using metadata and disk storage in a nearline setting and automatically manage data from creation through deletion.
