Dell EMC XtremIO Replication and new entry price point
XtremIO X2 All-Flash arrays gain major updates with the new XIOS 6.1 operating system, including delivering the industry's most efficient replication across a wide area network (WAN). X2 metadata-aware native replication is highly efficient and provides an added level of data protection for application workloads. XtremIO replication sends only unique data to the remote site to minimize bandwidth requirements by 75% or more, enabling potential network cost savings. XtremIO replication requires up to 38% less storage space at disaster recovery sites and operates with predictable performance to achieve recovery point objectives of 30 seconds.
Dell Technologies also introduced a new Dell EMC X2 entry model for customers, at up to 55% lower cost than the previous generation. Designed with XtremIO's unique metadata-centric architecture with full data services including inline data reduction (in-memory space-efficient copies, deduplication and compression), XtremIO can also achieve over "five nines" availability, offering customers enterprise-grade capabilities that start at midrange prices.
