  • Features and Benefits

    The Challenge

    It’s critical that key business applications run with maximum efficiency because they directly affect time-to-market, revenue, and customer satisfaction. Due to these factors, data centers are continually looking for ways to improve the speed and responsiveness of the applications that control their mission-critical business operations.

    One way to differentiate your organization from the competition and accelerate time-to-market is to extract value and insights quickly and reliably from a range of mixed workload environments.

    The Challenge

    The Solution

    The compact 2U Lenovo ThinkSystem DE6600F all-flash mid-range storage array will turbocharge access to your data to increase its value.

    This all-flash array combines industry-leading, enterprise-proven availability features with up to 2M IOPS, sub-100 microsecond response times, and up to 44GBps of bandwidth.

    ThinkSystem DE Series All Flash Array availability features include:

    • Seamless transition to next generation NVMe
    • Redundant components with automated failover
    • Intuitive storage management with comprehensive tuning functions

    • Snapshot copy creation, volume copy, and asynchronous mirroring for data protection.
    • Data assurance for data integrity and protection against silent data corruption
    • Industry-leading price/performance for enterprise workloads
    The ThinkSystem DE Series all-flash storage subsystems optimize price/performance, configuration flexibility, and simplicity, enabling you to process your critical business data faster and with better insights, for more effective decision-making.

    The Solution

    All-Flash Performance and Value

    The DE6600F delivers 2.0M sustained IOPS and response times measured in mere microseconds. It generates up to 44GBps of read throughput, enough for even your most bandwidth-intensive workloads.

    To protect your investment in storage networks, the DE All-Flash Series supports a wide range of high-speed IO interface options to meet future performance demands.

    • 200Gb NVMe/IB, NVMe/RoCe, SRP/IB and iSER/IB
    • 100Gb iSER/IB, SRP/IB
    • 32Gb NVMe/FC
    • 32Gb FC
    • 25Gb iSCSI 
    With support for up to 367TB of capacity in a 2U form factor, the ultra-dense DE6600F ensures you can meet the demand for today's workload requirements and address future business and demands without costly hardware upgrades.

    All-Flash Performance and Value

    Protecting Your Competitive Advantage

    Dynamic drive pool (DDP) technology allows storage administrators to simplify RAID management, improve data protection, and maintain predictable performance under all conditions.

    This innovative technology minimizes the performance impact of a drive failure and can return the system to optimal condition up to eight times faster than with traditional RAID.

    With shorter rebuild times and patented technology to prioritize reconstruction, DDP capabilities significantly reduce exposure to multiple disk failures, offering a level of data protection that cannot be achieved with traditional RAID.

    With DE Series, all management tasks can be performed while the storage remains online with complete read/write data access. Storage administrators can make configuration changes, conduct maintenance, or expand the storage capacity without disrupting I/O to attached hosts.

    DE Series nondisruptive administration features include:

    • Dynamic capacity and volume expansion
    • Dynamic segment size migration
    • Dynamic RAID-level migration
    • Non-disruptive firmware updates

    DE Series all-flash arrays protect against data loss and downtime events, both locally and remotely, using advanced data protection features, including:

    • Snapshot / Volume copy
    • Full drive encryption

    Eventually, all drives get redeployed, retired, or serviced. When this happens, you do not want your sensitive data going out the door with them. Combining local key management with drive-level encryption gives you comprehensive security for data-at-rest with no impact to performance.
