The perfect blend of economy and density, the EX500 injects even greater flexibility into the ECS appliance portfolio. With rack capacity ranging from 120TB to 6.1PB, the EX500 is a versatile option for midsized enterprises looking to support either modern application or deep archive use cases.


ECS, the leading object storage platform from Dell EMC, boasts unmatched scalability, performance, resilience, and economics. Deployable as a turnkey appliance or in a software-defined model, ECS delivers rich S3-compatibility on a globally distributed architecture, empowering organizations to support enterprise workloads such as cloud-native, archive, IoT, AI, and big data analytics applications at scale.

Dell ECS is an enterprise-grade, cloud-scale, object storage platform.

With ECS, any organization can deliver scalable public cloud services with the reliability and control of a private-cloud infrastructure. ECS provides comprehensive protocol support for unstructured—object and file—workloads on a single modern storage platform. Using ECS, organizations can easily manage globally distributed storage infrastructure under a single global namespace with anywhere access to content. ECS features a flexible software-defined architecture that is layered to promote limitless scalability. Each layer is completely abstracted and independently scalable with high availability and no single points of failure. ECS also comes in a fullyintegrated turnkey appliance that bundles software and Dell PowerEdge servers into an easily deployed object system.

ECS is currently in its third generation of hardware appliances, the EX-Series, building on the legacy of the EMC Centera and Atmos object storage platforms which predated ECS. The ECS EX-Series is comprised of four unique hardware products: the EX300, EX500, EX3000 and the all-flash EXF900.

The perfect blend of economy and density, the EX500 is a versatile option for midsized enterprises looking to support either modern application or deep archive use cases.
