The Dell Compellent SC8000 Storage Center Controller helps control data center operating expenses with Dell-driven efficiency, quality and durability. The SC8000 is a Storage Center controller built on the Dell PowerEdge 12th generation server platform with a custom configuration to support the needs of an enterprise datacenter. The SC8000 offers high density, exceptional processing power, excellent memory, and fast PCIe Gen3 IO bus. Dynamically scale to meet business requirements with the flexible, persistent SC8000 hardware platform.

A Storage Center SAN built with the SC8000 scales up to 960 SAS drives per dual controller system and scales-out to multiple systems across multiple sites, monitored by a single console. It supports simultaneous iSCSI, Fibre Channel (FC) and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) front-end interconnects to provide flexibility in your datacenter.

Unlike systems that require you to rip and replace technology as your business needs change, Storage Center supports the continual adoption of new technologies as you grow. You can easily mix and match SSD, SAS and FC drive technologies, upgrade storage array firmware and build a unified storage solution without ever worrying about a forklift upgrade. This allows you to use any combination of industry-standard technology at any time, and you can add capacity or make configuration changes without downtime or disruption. Incorporating the latest data center technologies is as simple as plugging in new components on the fly. Storage Center adjusts automatically, restriping data across all drives and updating the in-flight use characteristics.
