The Dell Storage Validation Request Form can be used to request large deployment opportunities that may be using a device that is not currently listed on the Dell Storage Compatibility Matrix (DSCM). While Dell provides full contractual support for the Dell Storage solution regardless of whether a device is listed in the DSCM, Dell's ability to provide guidance and resolution for performance and optimization requests may be limited due to limited experience with an untested device. 

Customers should work with their Dell Storage sales professionals to determine if it may be beneficial to submit a validation request.
