Dell has added file access to its DX6000 object storage platform.

The DX6000 is shipped by Dell with object storage software from Caringo. Dell has said it is going to add Ocarina file optimisation and compression to it and possibly scale-out NAS (network-attached storage) based on the IP from its Exanet acquisition.

The optional DX6000G Cluster File Server is a 1U rackmount filer gateway that supports NFS and CIFS protocols and is meant to aid the use of the DX6000 as a target for files that need to be archived. It can use up to four 3.5-inch nearline SAS drives that come in 500GB or 1TB capacities.

DX6000G pricing starts at $20,882. It is available now in Europe and North America, but shipping in Asia will begin in in mid-May. ®
