Compellent Launches SAN 4.0

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Compellent Technologies, Inc. (NYSE Arca: CML) today announced a new release of its award-winning storage area network (SAN), offering several industry-first technologies that can reduce the number of disk drives required by up to 80 percent.

Compellent Storage Center 4.0 is the first networked storage system to manage data inside the volume to automate tiered storage within every drive, amplify the storage utilization benefits of thin provisioning and reclaim unused disk space. New software applications like Fast Track, Thin Import and Free Space Recovery help eliminate disk drives from the data center, effectively reducing total cost of ownership and energy consumption for midsized enterprises.

Compellent is ushering in a new era of efficiency for networked storage systems,” explains Bruce Kornfeld, vice president of marketing, Compellent. “From software innovations like Fast Track to our third-generation controller, we framed the release of 4.0 around the business impact it would have on our end-users. By focusing on improving utilization and performance, we’ve delivered a storage platform that can significantly reduce disk drive requirements, and as a result cut power and cooling expenses. It’s the new TCO equation for the new data center.”
