Use Dell EMC ScaleIO Ready Node to quickly deploy a software-defined storage for block storage needs. Create web-scale infrastructure and grow on demand.

Dell EMC ScaleIO Ready Node

Lay the foundation for scale-out, software-defined storage with Dell EMC ScaleIO Ready Node. You can use ScaleIO Ready Node to quickly deploy a new storage or hyper-converged software-defined storage (SDS) architecture. Great for enterprises and service providers looking to deploy web-scale, enterprise-ready storage infrastructure.

ScaleIO Ready Node is a block storage node that combines Dell EMC ScaleIO software-defined storage and Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with direct-attached storage (DAS). Cluster multiple nodes to centralize I/O and benefit from extreme application performance, massive scale, and supreme elasticity through automated load balancing.

Begin with as little as three nodes, offered in different combinations of CPU, storage (including all flash), and memory. Grow by the node. And the ability to pool storage resources eliminates data migrations and forklift upgrades in addition to reducing costs.

Key features:

  • Offers all-flash configurations optimized for capacity or density
  • Tuned, optimized, validated, and supported by Dell EMC
  • Combines Dell EMC ScaleIO software-defined storage and Dell PowerEdge servers
  • Supports a range of hypervisors and operating systems
  • Scales from 3 nodes to more than 1,000
  • Provides performance that scales linearly: 10 million+ IOPS
