  • Virtualizes SAN resources
  • Enables peer scalability of up to 16 arrays
  • Provides intelligent data management functionality
  • Automatically adjusts system resources
  • Optimizes performance
  • Reduces manual intervention

Also included in the firmware is the EqualLogic Manual Transfer Utility that provides a non-network replication capability to minimize the time required to transfer large amounts of data between replication partners.

EqualLogic’s latest firmware (release 7.0) includes enhanced functions for PS Series arrays such as:

  • Robust and scalable Access Control Policies for simplified administration
  • Newly redesigned GUI with search functionality
  • RAID policy recommendations to help promote RAID best practices
  • New technologies with backward compatibility including a 64-bit kernel firmware version for newer arrays and support for 4K sector volumes and 4K native sector (4Kn) drives
VMWare Host SoftwareEqualLogic Host Integration Tools

This family of host-based software provides tight integration between the EqualLogic array and the host. Dell provides host integration tools for Microsoft®, VMware® and Linux® environments, providing customers with the following benefits:

  • Comprehensive data protection and availability
  • Integrated storage management
  • Reliable performance
  • Streamlined array configuration

SAN HQEqualLogic SAN Headquarters

Dell EqualLogic SAN Headquarters (SAN HQ) is a centralized monitoring and reporting tool that gathers and provides in-depth information on performance, capacity and alerts across multiple groups of EqualLogic PS arrays, helping improve performance and effective allocation of group resources.

With Dell SupportAssist functionality, SAN HQ 3.0 can automatically create support cases based on system faults, and it allows you to view your open Dell Support cases for EqualLogic arrays monitored by SupportAssist.
