The Total Economic Impact (TEI) of Dell EMC PowerScale OneFS Powered Systems
Dell EMC PowerScale is a scale-out network-attached storage (NAS) platform that enables organizations to store, manage, and analyze unstructured data. PowerScale clusters are composed of node types that scale from terabytes (TBs) to petabytes (PBs) in a single, easy-to-manage cluster. Clusters can also scale to edge locations and the cloud, and customers can run a variety of workloads on the same data set within a single platform.
Forrester’s study examines the cost savings and business benefits enabled by Dell EMC’s PowerScale, and the potential ROI of deploying Dell EMC’s PowerScale OneFS powered systems. The study also provides a framework for evaluating the potential financial impact of a PowerScale investment and helps you better understand the benefits, costs, and risks of a PowerScale implementation.
Participants noted that PowerScale required little training and that managing clusters with several PBs of data required just one full-time equivalent. Plus, along with scalability and cost effectiveness, the performance and resiliency of PowerScale clusters facilitated fast business growth and reduced downtime.
