Dell PowerFlex is a software-defined infrastructure platform that reduces operational and infrastructure complexity. It empowers organizations to move faster by delivering flexibility, elasticity, and simplicity with extraordinary predictable performance for mission-critical workloads, while also providing resiliency at scale. The Dell PowerFlex family provides a foundation that combines compute and high-performance storage resources in a managed, unified fabric.
Dell PowerFlex uses software to unlock the full potential of rapid advances in industry-standard hardware and deliver extreme SLA outcomes. It aggregates resources across a broad set of nodes, unlocking massive input, output, and throughput performance while minimizing latency. Its self-balancing architecture eliminates any hotspots and ensures consistency and simplicity over time. You can scale the system while linearly scaling performance from a minimum of four nodes to thousands of nodes, on-demand and without disruption. With its self-healing architecture, Dell PowerFlex can handle outages, upgrades, and maintenance without downtime, resulting in 99.9999 percent availability.
Dell PowerFlex delivers transformational agility that enables organizations to rapidly respond to changing business needs. It offers flexibility to mix and match storage, compute, and hyperconverged nodes in a dynamic deployment, allowing you to scale storage and compute resources together or independently, one node at a time.
Dell PowerFlex supports a broad range of operating environments simultaneously such as bare metal operating systems, hypervisors, and container platforms with a unified underlying infrastructure platform and management. You can also support heterogeneous workloads with varying requirements on a flexible shared infrastructure platform and modernize your application architectures on your schedule.
Dell PowerFlex offers full-stack IT Operations Management (ITOM) and Life Cycle Management (LCM) with Dell PowerFlex Manager. It provides extensive automation capabilities with Dell PowerFlex Manager REST APIs and custom Ansible modules to integrate with your infrastructure, application, and DevOps workflows. Dell PowerFlex Manager enables automated deployments and expansions with minimal time for the IT team, letting them focus on other strategic initiatives.
