Modular Design With Enterprise Reliability

The Dell EqualLogic PS Series’ virtualized, modular architecture enables IT managers to purchase only the storage that is needed when it is needed – helping to prevent both under utilization and over-provisioning.

EqualLogic PS6500x - Enterprise Interconnection
Using patented data movement technology, all PS Series arrays can work together to automatically manage data, load balance across system resources and expand to meet growing needs. The PS6500X can only be in a pool with other PS5500E, PS6500E and/or PS6500X systems.
EqualLogic PS6500x - Design
All PS Series arrays are designed to exceed the rugged requirements of the data center. The PS6500X is fault-tolerant with fully redundant and hot-swappable components — standard dual controllers, triple fan trays, triple redundant power supplies and disk drives with hot spares.
EqualLogic PS6500x - High Performance
Self-tuning, write-back caches are battery-backed and mirrored across controllers for ultimate protection without compromising performance.

Flexibility With Low Cost of Ownership

Dell 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 arrays provide exceptional flexibility at a low total cost of ownership.
