Dell has introduced new storage solutions designed to make use of its fluid data architecture.

The company launched the new storage appliances at the Dell Storage Forum that took place in London.

According to an article on Information Week, the company released the DR4000 Disk Backup Appliance at the forum, designed for small business and medium-sized enterprises. The appliance has been designed for deduplication and compression.

The appliance, which can be managed using a browser based user interface, comes with the requisite license for replication and Symantec Open Storage Technology.

The company also launched a new storage solution for Microsoft SharePoint Infrastructure Optimization, which brings enhanced performance and management. Dell also announced the Dell Compellent Storage Center 6.0 software, which comes with 64-bit support.

"Today's IT organizations are moving faster than ever down a road that is constantly changing. That's why their data needs to be as dynamic as their business," said Darren Thomas, vice president and general manager, Dell Enterprise Storage.

"With Dell's new primary, archive and backup storage solutions, the Dell Fluid Data architecture delivers the storage intelligence customers need to deal with a sea of constant IT change without driving up costs, wasting time or continually replacing infrastructure," he said.
