Dell EMC now offers all-flash arrays as low as $0.45/GB net effective capacity.

Source: Dell internal analysis, March 2016.  Net effective capacity after applying a 4:1 compression and dedupe ratio. Customer’s price may vary based on a variety of circumstances and data should be used for comparison purposes.

SC4020 $25K AFA can achieve over 100,000 IOPs in its initial six-drive configuration, and can reach over 300,000 IOPs when populated with 24 SSDs.

Source: Internal tests performed by Dell in December, 2014 with Storage Center v6.5.20. Actual performance will vary based on configuration, usage and manufacturing variability.
