Dell EqualLogic PS6510E

Dell EqualLogic PS6510E

The Dell™ EqualLogic™ PS6510E 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.

The PS6510E delivers the lowest cost-per-gigabyte in the PS6010 Series with up to 144TB of storage in a high-density 4U chassis. A PS Series SAN built with PS6510E arrays can scale up to 2.3PB 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.

Exceptional Ease of Use

Exceptional Ease of Use
The PS6510E is an intelligent storage array that is designed to provide rapid deployment, simple management and seamless expansion.
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 the array is fully functional out of the box.

Modular Design with Enterprise Reliability

Modular Design With Enterprise Reliability
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.
Modular Design With Enterprise Reliability
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.
Modular Design With Enterprise Reliability
The EqualLogic SAN line is designed to meet and exceed the rugged requirements of today’s data center. The PS6510E 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.
