Dell Debuts New PowerVault NAS for SMBs

Dell has once again beefed up its server and storage portfolio for small and medium-sized business (SMB) customers with a new PowerVault NAS system and a pair of PowerEdge small business servers. According to this report from Small Business Computing, Dell is betting that the official end to the recession will prompt smaller customers to finally refresh their storage and server systems.


“In a move to reach more small and midsized businesses (SMB), Dell has announced that it is delivering a network attached storage (NAS) device, two new small business servers, and new wireless gear aimed at providing the same powerful technology that enterprises use, at a reasonable price.

“Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) introduced the PowerVault NX200 Network Attached Storage tower, the R415 and R515 servers, and a line of PowerConnect wireless solutions called the W-Series. The two servers are due to be available on Oct. 11, while the NAS tower and the wireless solutions are available now, the company said.

“While the recession is officially over, many small businesses have yet to see commerce turn up significantly. However, they have another problem.

“‘The economy still continues to be challenging, but businesses are finding they can no longer postpone technology updates,’ Erik Dithmer, vice president and general manager of Dell Americas small and medium business, said in a statement.

“Dell’s PowerVault NX200 is a NAS device that the company says was designed with small businesses in mind.

“Dell’s new NX200 runs on a single Intel dual-core Celeron processor with a clock speed of 2.26 GHz. In addition, the NX200 comes with 2 GB of RAM. The NAS unit can be configured with from 1TB to 8TB of hard disks.”
