Dell PowerStore addresses increasing workload demands with flexible quad-level cell (QLC) storage and performance enhancements.


QLC-based storage: Provides enterprise-class performance at a lower cost per terabyte compared to triple-level cell (TLC) models. Customers can start with 11 QLC drives and scale up to 5.9 petabytes of effective capacity per appliance. PowerStore’s intelligent load balancing improves workload placement across mixed TLC and QLC clusters.

Increased performance: Enhances hardware performance by up to 66% through new data-in-place higher model appliance upgrades.

Dell PowerStore software advancements offer improved efficiency, security, and cloud mobility:


Software-driven performance boost: Non-disruptive software updates, available at no additional cost, deliver up to a 30% higher mixed workload performance and up to 20% lower latency.

Improved data protection: Offers more choices for safeguarding critical workloads with native synchronous replication for block and file workloads and native metro replication for Windows, Linux, and VMware environments.

Increased efficiency: Software enhancements provide up to 20% better data reduction and 28% improved power efficiency.


Multi-cloud data mobility enhancements: Simplifies workload mobility by connecting PowerStore to Dell APEX Block Storage, enhancing multi-cloud strategies.

“Dell PowerStore is helping Fulgent Genetics transform patient care in pathology, oncology, reproductive health, as well as infectious and rare diseases, by significantly accelerating data processing speed so that our physicians can deliver faster genetic insights and test results to our patients,” said Mike Lacenere, vice president, Applications, Fulgent Genetics. “PowerStore enhances our commitment to sustainability by minimizing energy use and reducing the size of our data centers while providing us considerable cost savings. With PowerStore’s new advances, we expect this trifecta of performance, efficiency, and cost savings to continue to increase which will help us improve patient care.”
