Faster Data Recovery with Dell SC-Series Storage and Silver Peak (Video)

A financial institution with nearly 50 locations throughout California, Citizens Business Bank achieved faster data recovery by combining Silver Peak data acceleration software with Dell SC-Series Storage.

Today, at the Dell User Forum in Miami, Dell introduced the new Dell Storage SC4000 Series arrays. These bring high-end storage capabilities to mid-sized deployments, offering all-flash performance for up to 72 percent lower costs than competing pure flash arrays. Silver Peak also announced that our software has been certified to accelerate remote replication for the new Dell Storage SC4000 Series arrays.

When Silver Peak software is combined with the Dell Storage SC4000 Remote Instant Replay, companies can protect up to 20x more data over existing networks. Silver Peak complements the SC4000 by reducing TCO and enabling customers to deploy over existing, lower cost networks like Internet/VPN In collaboration with Dell storage.

“Silver Peak improved our usable bandwidth by more than 22x, providing headroom for future growth.” - Steve Borba, AVP network security manager at Citizens Business Bank.

The Dell Storage SC4000 Series can scale to more than 400 terabytes (TB) of raw capacity and can support a wide range of workloads. For example, the Dell Storage SC4020 can host up to 10,000 Microsoft Exchange 2013 user mailboxes in a single 2U SAN with 24 hard disk drives or can achieve nearly 120,000 IOPS (input-output operations per second) with less than one millisecond latency for OLTP or mixed workloads.

With the addition of Silver Peak, remote replication throughput over the WAN can be increased to accommodate up to 2 TB/hr of replication capacity without having to upgrade the existing infrastructure, which extends capacity for future growth.

Silver Peak’s software-based approach to data acceleration overcomes WAN impediments like distance, poor quality, and limited bandwidth helping storage and IT administrators easily meet recovery point objectives (RPO) while saving money on network infrastructure.
