The Dell DX Object Storage Platform is built on peer-scaling x86 architecture with integrated software including Dell OpenManage featuring the Dell Management console and Lifecycle controller.
Dell DX object-based storage offers advantages over traditional disk-based storage because it creates, stores, and distributes variable-sized data objects and their associated rich metadata instead of data blocks that are placed on different tracks and sectors - making the data much more easily accessible.
By saving many more attributes that traditional disk-based storage, DX object-based storage allows not only for faster identification and retrieval of information, but also for more intelligent storage, protection and distribution. These intelligent capabilities all add up to the ability to better leverage your data for more informed decision-making.
Efficient Data Storage
Featuring a flat-address space design, DX Object Storage eliminates file system complexity as well as any need to manage LUNs and RAID sets. Also offering a space-efficient 2U rack mount chassis design, Dell DX object-based and meta data-aware disk storage also provides the advantages of policy-based, automated management, and advanced self-healing functionality.
