 Exceptional ease of Use
A PS6010E can often be installed, configured and serving storage in less than 1 hour.

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 the data center. The PS6010E includes fault tolerance capabilities through fully redundant and hot-swappable components — standard dual-10GbE controllers, dual fan trays, dual power supplies, and robust Solid State Disk drives with hot spares.

ENTERPRISE DATA SERVICES WITHOUT ADDITIONAL COST

The PS6010E has built-in storage features once available only to top-tier data centers, enabling best practice storage for every size organization.
