The new, combined Dell Storage Compatibility Matirx (October 2016) is now available here: PDF
 The DSCM provides guidance on host and switching devices have been validated for use with SC Series (Compellent), PS Series (EqualLogic) and FS Series (FluidFS) storage solutions.
 
This list is not an exhaustive list of what works with any of these solutions.  Dell Storage solutions are based on storage industry standards for Fibre Channel and iSCSI and can work with almost any host adapter or switch that adheres to these standards.
 
Please review the Support Policy Statement for clarification on how Dell will provide support for validated and non-validated components.

  • is there an updated version of it with Windows 2016 compatibility... I've already seen SC Series Best practices for Windows 2016 and Nano Server... is it right that when you create a server object, you need to choose Windows 2012 MPIO and no Windows 2016 yet? please confirm. Thanks.
