Dell Launches Ocarina Compression Enabled Storage Product

Computer maker Dell has started integrating the storage, networking and archiving technologies it had acquired, with its existing product line-up.

Dell has spent a considerable amount of money acquiring technologies that would enable it to offer a complete solution portfolio for enterprise users.

The company announced plans how it is planning to integrate the enterprise storage technologies it acquired from Compellent, networking technologies from Force10 and database archiving technologies from Orcarina Networks.

According to ZD Net, the company will be introducing the new DX6000G Storage Compression Mode on October 18. This latest product, which will be offered alongside the DX6000 range, is based on the compression and deduplication technology Dell acquired from Orcarina Networks.

Dell also plans to integrate the technologies it acquired from Compellent and Force10 in its vStart virtualisation hardware and software product offerings. The new integrated solutions will be made available sometime in 2012.

"We are moving more and more as an industry toward application-specific solutions," Dave Johnson, Dell's senior president for corporate strategy, told ZDNet UK.
