Dell Intros SAN Array

SAN FRANCISCO -- Exponential data growth affects businesses of all sizes, but Dell CEO Michael Dell believes the IT industry has under-served small and medium-sized business customers in meeting their storage needs.

Speaking at an SMB customer town hall today, Mr. Dell said, Growing businesses are quickly reaching a breaking point in their ability to store and manage all this data being created. Historically, the industry has presented SMBs with two options for storage: either buy a rudimentary storage solution that lacks capacity and basic software or buy a ‘de-featured’ product originally designed for large businesses. So it either doesn’t do enough, or it costs too much. We will change that.”

Mr. Dell introduced the company’s newest storage area network (SAN) array, the MD3000i, a simplified storage consolidation solution designed specifically for SMB customers.

“We are committed to simplifying IT for our customers and changing the economics of storage,” he explained. “The MD3000i is a perfect example of how we drive out costs, drive up functionality, and drive industry adoption of technologies and standards to meet customer needs.”
