Dell EqualLogic PS4000X

Dell EqualLogic PS4000X

The Dell EqualLogic™ PS4000 Series of virtualized iSCSI SAN arrays are designed to bring enterprise-class features, intelligence, automation and reliability to remote or branch office, departmental and small-to-medium business (SMB) storage deployments.

The PS4000 Series addresses branch office and SMB storage needs with simplified administration, rapid deployment and an affordable price, while providing a full set of enterprise-class data protection and management features, solid performance, scalability and fault-tolerance. With 10,000 RPM SAS disk drives, the PS4000X array provides up to 9.6 TB of storage for a great balance of cost-effective performance and capacity. To grow storage capacity and performance for remote office needs, two PS4000 arrays can be combined in a SAN group. To further scale out the SAN, EqualLogic PS6000 arrays can be added seamlessly without sacrificing the initial investment in PS4000 arrays.
Exceptional Ease of Use

Exceptional Ease of Use

All PS Series storage arrays include SAN configuration features and capabilities that sense network connections, automatically build RAID sets, and conduct system health checks to help ensure that all components are fully functional. The PS4000X is designed to be installed, configured, and serving storage in less than one hour. To improve enterprise-wide storage management, the EqualLogic SAN HeadQuarters software tool provides centralized performance and event monitoring of EqualLogic SANs across multiple sites, for instance monitoring PS4000 deployments at branch offices and PS6000 deployments in corporate data centers.
Modular Design with Enterprise Reliability

Modular Design with Enterprise Reliability

To help prevent both under-utilization and over-provisioning, 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. Using innovative data movement technology, all EqualLogic PS Series arrays within 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 the enterprise data center and remote office. The PS4000X includes fault-tolerance capabilities through fully redundant and hot-swappable components — optional dual-controllers, standard dual fan trays, dual power supplies, and disk drives with hot spares.
