Dell, Microsoft collaborate on storage

Dell and Microsoft have rolled out a new storage system for file and application data that integrates hardware and software from both vendors.

The system pairs Dell's PowerVault NX1950, a serial-attached SCSI (SAS) back-end storage array that can use up to 45 drives, with Windows Unified Data Storage Server 2003, a file server and package of management tools.

The companies say the paired products are aimed at the mid-range and include advanced management tools. Together, the products eliminate the need for separate licences for additional features such as snapshots, replication and resource management.

The system starts at US$17,000 with a configuration for 4.5TB of storage at $24,000. It will work with Windows, Unix, Linux and Macintosh systems.

Dell also announced a new member to its PowerVault line, the MD3000, aimed for high-performance tasks such as serving up video or applications with high transactional performance needs, such as databases and e-mail.

The company says the product is the first external redundant array of independent disks SAS array from a Tier 1 vendor.

The MD3000 is capable of 1400MB per second of throughput and approximately 90,000 input/output operations per second, Dell says. Pricing for the MD3000 starts at $6499.
