The Dell™ EqualLogic™ PS65010X is a virtualized iSCSI SAN that combines intelligence and automation with fault tolerance to provide simplified administration, rapid deployment, enterprise performance and reliability, and seamless scalability.
With 10,000 RPM SAS disk drives, the PS6510X array provides up to 43.2TB of storage for a great balance of cost-effective performance and capacity. A PS Series SAN built with PS6510X arrays can scale up to 691.2TB under a single, intuitive management interface.
The PS6510 line features a redesigned 10GbE dual-port controller delivering up to 10x the bandwidth per port and 2.5x the bandwidth per array compared to previous generations.
The PS6510X is an intelligent storage array that is designed to provide rapid deployment, simple management and seamless expansion.
EqualLogic PS Series arrays are based on a virtualized modular storage architecture that enables IT managers to purchase only the storage they need, when they need it — helping to prevent both underutilization and over-provisioning.
Using innovative data movement technology, all EqualLogic PS Series arrays in a SAN work together to automatically manage data, load balance across all resources, and expand to meet growing storage needs.
The EqualLogic SAN line is designed to meet and exceed the rugged requirements of today’s data center. The PS6510X includes fault tolerance capabilities through fully redundant and hot-swappable components — dual-controllers, three fan trays and power supplies, and disk drives with hot spares.
The EqualLogic PS Series arrays represent a breakthrough in storage economics, from purchase and setup to operation and upgrades.
The PS Series scales on-demand — and online — allowing storage growth without disrupting applications. As a result, EqualLogic PS6510X arrays provide exceptional flexibility at a low total cost of ownership.
Whether consolidating a direct-attached storage (DAS) infrastructure, migrating data from an existing SAN or NAS system, streamlining data protection processes, or simply adding storage capacity, the EqualLogic PS Series from Dell offers a family of proven, high-performance, self-managing storage arrays designed to meet the requirements of today’s critical datacenter environments.
