All in all this series great in addressing issues applications that need flash storage as a backend storage supply. It addresses the need for fast, responsive servers that need to boot quickly. It is easy to use and for the most part there are few issues and none that can't be addressed/fixed quickly.

This type of array works excellent in small environments that don't have high I/O usage servers. Once the servers start to become more and more high intensity I/O, you can begin to tell that this array cannot handle the spikes. This mainly can cause issues when doing snapshot-based backups, and the I/O is high when the consolidation occurs. We have seen this happen a good amount with the SC9000 but not the Vmax array.

Dell Compellent has a decent portfolio of products for varying sizes of business. Their licensing model is suited for those not wanting total a la carte fare, and administration is intuitive as compared to other storage arrays. This combined with Co-Pilot support gives Dell a good presence in a vast number of scenarios where networked storage is required over a DAS solution. It's only fallback is its own NAS solution, which itself may be better suited to smaller environments.

Compellent fits very well in the mid-sized business market. I wouldn't call it a system that would do well with a company the size of Google or Apple. The cost, features, and speed is what makes Compellent a perfect fit for any business that needs a quality SAN that can scale as needed.
