Overview

Faction has partnered with Dell Technologies to combine the benefits of compute and processing services in the cloud with the unmatched scalability, performance and efficiency of Faction CCVs on Dell storage hardware, while maintaining control and security of their data.

This service delivers a higher bandwidth (up to 200 Gbps), lower latency connection (as low as 1.2 ms) to the Microsoft Azure cloud using Azure ExpressRoute Local. There are also no outbound data traffic costs for data written to Dell Isilon from within Azure.

Benefits

  • Scale up without adding complexity

    Enjoy cloud-attached storage that scales as your applications require, without the need to add costly compute nodes.

  • Flexible performance tiering

    Storage performance tiers allow you to optimize your storage design, matching access frequency and throughput capabilities to your specific workloads, while reducing costs to store less frequently accessed data.

  • Decrease risk with durable and persistent storage

    Faction storage is persistent, unlike many of your other options. Most public clouds leverage hyper-converged infrastructure, so if a software-defined data center is shut down, all data is lost as the node is deleted. You can avoid that scenario with Faction cloud storage.

  • Efficient, high performance

    Dell EMC, Azure, and Faction combined allow for the right combination of compute and storage for data-intensive, high I/O throughput, file-based workloads that require high compute performance on a periodic and/or unpredictable basis.

Use Cases

  • Big Data

    As your data grows it becomes more valuable to your business. Public clouds offer AI and machine learning capabilities to process, manipulate, and analyze your data to create competitive advantages.

  • Multi-Cloud Storage

    Avoid vendor lock-in, support high-availability architectures, and leverage different clouds that best meet business use cases.

  • Multi-Cloud Resilience

    Plan and provide your business with more options to restore operations in the event one cloud provider experiences an outage.

  • Data Center Extension

    Add compute power and capacity. Comply with data sovereignty requirements. Reduce costs by vacating an existing data center.

Take control of your cloud data.
