PowerStore utilizes Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, plus a flexible all-NVMe design featuring dual-ported Intel® Optane™ SSDs and NVMe-over-fabric networking (both FC and TCP), to deliver end-to-end low latency performance for any workload. Always-on data reduction, intelligent automation, active resource balancing, predictive analytics and nondisruptive software and hardware upgrades keep your storage environment continuously optimized, up-to-date and easy to manage, even as your needs evolve over time.

Performance optimized

Designed to leverage next-gen innovations such as end-to-end NVMe (both FC and Ethernet) and dual-port Intel Optane solid state drives (SSDs) as Storage Class Memory (SCM), PowerStore delivers up to 7x more IOPs3 and 3x lower latency4 for real-world workloads compared to our previous storage generation, giving you all the headroom you need to ensure long-term value through multiple solution lifecycles.

Scale up and scale out

Expanding the capabilities of your initial PowerStore configuration is simple and extremely efficient, as capacity and performance may be scaled independently. Each active-active PowerStore appliance can grow to over 2.8 PB effective capacity, and multiple appliances can be clustered for greater performance.

Efficiency without compromise

Regardless of how you grow, PowerStore costs remain consistently low. Deduplication and compression are “always on,” and thanks to Intel QuickAssist hardware acceleration, PowerStore systems provide a guaranteed average 4:1 data reduction6 without compromising performance.
