iSCSI Storage Area Network (SAN)

Internet SCSI (iSCSI) storage area network (SAN) is an IP-based network interconnect between servers and storage, built upon the SCSI and TCP/IP protocols. It is the dominant standard for storage and networking in use today, and Dell is recognized as its #1 provider. Virtualized iSCSI takes the protocol further by enabling the fully virtualized data center.

Dell has high-performance options to suit both environments, including:
  • Dell Compellent Storage Center SAN — Automated data tiering, integrated space-efficient snapshots, thin replication and dynamic business continuity software combine to provide high availability for enterprises and the cloud. It supports the continual adoption of new technologies and allows you to choose the network fabric — iSCSI or Fibre Channel.
  • Dell EqualLogic PS series — Virtualized SAN platform built from the ground up using iSCSI; automates complex tasks and enables rapid storage provisioning.
  • PowerVault MD series — Easy deployment for entry-level SAN implementations. It features a suite of intuitive, intelligent storage management software applications.
