Data Protection and Disaster Recovery SAN Storage Enclosure
The Dell Compellent Series C40 CT-040 SAN Storage Enclosure provides several data protection and disaster recovery features to ensure the safety and availability of your data. Here are some of the key features:
- Snapshots: The C40 CT-040 supports snapshots, which are point-in-time copies of your data. You can take snapshots at regular intervals to create restore points that allow you to quickly recover data in case of accidental deletions, logical corruptions, or other data loss scenarios.
- Replication: The C40 CT-040 supports asynchronous and synchronous replication of data between multiple storage systems. You can use replication to create disaster recovery copies of your data and to maintain copies of data in geographically dispersed locations.
- Thin provisioning: The C40 CT-040 supports thin provisioning, which allows you to allocate storage capacity to applications and hosts on-demand. Thin provisioning can help you optimize your storage usage and reduce your storage costs.
- Data compression: The C40 CT-040 supports data compression, which can help you reduce your storage costs by compressing data before it is written to disk. Compression can also help you improve your storage performance by reducing the amount of data that needs to be written and read from disk.
- Redundant components: The C40 CT-040 comes with redundant controllers, power supplies, and fans, which ensure high availability and data redundancy. In case of a failure in any of these components, the C40 CT-040 can automatically switch to the redundant component without any interruption in service.
- RAID protection: The C40 CT-040 supports several RAID levels, including RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID 10, and RAID 10 DM. These RAID levels provide data protection against drive failures and can help you maintain data availability in case of hardware failures.
