Dell also has an all-flash Compellent option that was GA as of Storage Center 6.4. And there was always an all-flash EqualLogic in the PS6xx0s, but it certainly wasn't this capable. It would be interesting to see how they obtained that 1.2m IOPS result. Some people buy flash expecting sub-millisecond access times from their apps, but some of us could live quite happily at 2ms especially if it's reasonably consistent and means expanding in cheaper increments.
I wonder how it would compete as far as features and $/IOPS vs. the rest of the flash market? I suspect some folks will need to either spread FUD (15MB page size, how does Dell sleep at night!) or cut costs significantly.
Add in the Force 10 switching providing low latency 10GbE with DCB for lossless Ethernet and you've got a pretty stout storage backend/fabric that shouldn't break the bank (although I'm looking at 300k for a flashy CML, so it's still steep even with the Dell price points).
Not a bad story for Dell tbh, especially existing EQL customers looking at a flash requirement. Now to pull a multi-controller Compellent out of the hat for Enterprise Tier 1 customers.
