Exabyte-scale. Extreme performance. Enterprise-grade.
ECS, the leading object storage platform from Dell EMC, boasts unmatched scalability, performance, resilience, and economics. Deployable as a turnkey appliance or in a software-defined model, ECS delivers rich S3-compatibility on a globally distributed architecture, empowering organizations to support enterprise workloads such as cloud-native, archive, IoT, AI, and big data analytics applications at scale.
With ECS, any organization can deliver scalable public cloud services with the reliability and control of a private-cloud infrastructure. ECS provides comprehensive protocol support for unstructured—object and file—workloads on a single modern storage platform. Using ECS, organizations can easily manage globally distributed storage infrastructure under a single global namespace with anywhere access to content. ECS features a flexible software-defined architecture that is layered to promote limitless scalability. Each layer is completely abstracted and independently scalable with high availability and no single points of failure. ECS also comes in a fullyintegrated turnkey appliance that bundles software and Dell PowerEdge servers into an easily deployed object system.
ECS is currently in its third generation of hardware appliances, the EX-Series, building on the legacy of Dell EMC’s Centera and Atmos object storage platforms which predated ECS. The ECS EX-Series is comprised of four unique hardware products: the EX300, EX500, EX3000 and the all-flash EXF900.
