EqualLogic PS6010XVS iSCSI Storage Array

Dell EqualLogic PS6010XVS

The PS6010XVS reinforces the EqualLogic principles of intelligence, automation and scalable performance, with the addition of optimized data response for your applications through intelligent data tiering. Using a combination of low-latency SSD and performance-oriented SAS drives, the PS6010XVS automatically places data on the appropriate disk technology using historical I/O (input/output) and performance patterns and helps optimize data response for your applications, while maximizing efficiency. The ability to sense and intelligently respond to data requirements is a valuable feature for applications like virtual desktops. Virtual desktops can benefit from a low-latency SSD during desktop initialization (such as Bootstorm) and often require cost-effective, performance-oriented storage for user data files. For applications that also require increased bandwidth, the PS6010 line features a redesigned 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) dual-port controller, delivering up to 10 times the bandwidth per port and two and a half times the bandwidth per array compared to previous generations.
