Dell PowerStore Boosts Security, Scalability & Energy Efficiency

Dell Technologies has announced significant security enhancements and increased productivity with their PowerStore intelligent all-flash data storage array. The latest software-driven features include Zero Trust adoption support, simplified backup, and improved energy efficiency. These innovations are aimed at helping customers better protect, prevent, and respond to cyberattacks while streamlining their multicloud data protection strategies.

Accelerating Zero Trust Adoption

PowerStore features new security software enhancements designed to help businesses adopt a Zero Trust model—a security architecture providing continuous verification of users and resources to authorize only known entities and actions. Some notable improvements include:

  • STIG-hardening – Adhering to the most stringent configuration standards defined by the U.S. federal government and the Department of Defense.
  • Secure and immutable snapshots – Preventing unauthorized deletion or modification of snapshots before their expiration date.
  • Streamlined file permissions – Allowing storage administrators to manage access directly from PowerStore to respond quickly to security threats.
  • Multi-factor authentication – Protecting administrative access to PowerStore by requiring increased verification of a user’s identity.

Increased Productivity and Cost Efficiency

PowerStore now offers software automation and multicloud advancements to help customers maximize their existing IT investments while minimizing operational and energy costs. The new features include:

  • Dell PowerProtect native integration – Providing customers increased simplicity and choice in multicloud data protection strategies with convenient backup to the cloud capability.
  • DevOps workflow enhancements – PowerStore now supports integrations with Ansible and Terraform, giving DevOps workers easy-to-use storage automation tools and the ability to build repeatable processes across diverse environments without low-level coding or help desk support.

Enhanced PowerStore Energy Efficiency

PowerStore now delivers up to 60% more IOPS (input/output operations per second) per watt, with ENERGY STAR certified configurations. As the most energy-efficient PowerStore system to date, it addresses the increasing demand for energy efficiency and sustainability in IT buying decisions, as highlighted in a recent IDC survey.

In addition to PowerStore, new software innovations address a range of advancements across the Dell Storage portfolio, including Dell PowerMax, PowerFlex, ObjectScale, CloudIQ, and Unity XT.

Dell Technologies aims to provide customers with the most innovative technology and services through software-driven innovation. The updated Dell PowerStore security features demonstrate the company’s commitment to powering customers’ multicloud journeys while strengthening cyber resiliency and meeting industry security requirements.
