Once again shifting the spotlight away from PCs (and all that private business news), Dell is touting its enterprise storage portfolio — specifically a new set of all-flash storage solutions for big data-hungry applications.

The Round Rock, Texas-based company asserted that its new all flash storage options cost less than comparable hard disk drive alternatives on the market.

For example, Dell touted that its Compellent all-flash series “costs less than a comparable 15K disk drive solution” thanks to automated tiering capabilities.

When taking advantage of dual flash drives deployments compared to utilizing “traditional” spinning arrays, Dell boasted that its new Compellent branded solutions could reduce latency by up to 90 percent, the rack space by up to 84 percent, and costs by as much as 56 percent.
