Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS)

ECS is one object storage designed for unlocking insights from data from both traditional and next-gen workloads. It features a flexible software-defined architecture that provides the simplicity and low cost benefits of the public cloud without the risk, compliance, and data sovereignty concerns. ECS provides significant value for enterprises and service providers seeking a platform architected to support rapid data growth. ECS combines the cost advantages of commodity infrastructure with high reliability, availability and serviceability.

Challenges with Traditional Storage Platforms

  • Giving each application its own file system leads to under-utilized storage capacity;
  • Handling large amounts of data creates costly complexity for developers;
  • Backup and disaster recovery consume physical and human resources;
  • Accessing data over the internet is hard;
  • Development teams must wait for storage admins to allocate new file systems.

Modernization Mitigates These Challenges

  • Reclaims expensive existing primary storage
  • Less on-going primary storage acquisition costs
  • Gets static data out of the recurring backup process
  • Less backup storage acquisition costs
  • Less management and operating costs
  • Short provisioning time

Why is ECS different?

  • Multi-tenant service
  • Geo-replication of data across multiple nodes
  • Metadata search and management
  • Multi-protocol support
  • Direct internet access to data via HTTP
  • Lower cost than public cloud
  • Unmatched combination of storage efficiency and data access
  • Anywhere read/write access with strong consistency simplifies finding and using archived assets
  • No single points of failure increases availability and performance
  • Universal accessibility eliminates storage silos and inefficient archiving processes
  • Comprehensive data types satisfy the broadest range of application needs
