The PowerVault NX3600 and NX3610 implement Dell™ Fluid File System (FluidFS), a key component of the Dell Fluid Data™ architecture that delivers solutions that give people the right information at the right time for the right cost.

FluidFS is an enterprise-class distributed file system that is implemented across Dell Storage product lines. It is designed to optimize file access performance and hardware utilization while eliminating capacity constraints all within a single namespace for easy administration. FluidFS presents a storage pool as a single file system with a single IP address to the client(s). It uses cache efficiently to provide fast, highly reliable reads and writes.
