Dell EqualLogic PS6510X
Exceptional Ease of Use
The PS6510X is an intelligent storage array that is designed to provide rapid deployment, simple management and seamless expansion.
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
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.
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.
The EqualLogic SAN line is designed to meet and exceed the rugged requirements of today’s data center. The PS6510X 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.
FLEXIBILITY WITH LOW COST OF OWNERSHIPThe EqualLogic PS Series arrays represent a breakthrough in storage economics, from purchase and setup to operation and upgrades. Unlike traditional SANs, the EqualLogic PS Series includes software and applications expected from an enterprise-level SAN at no extra cost. The PS Series scales on-demand — and online — allowing storage growth without disrupting applications. As a result, EqualLogic PS6510X arrays provide exceptional flexibility at a low total cost of ownership. Whether consolidating a direct-attached storage (DAS) infrastructure, migrating data from an existing SAN or NAS system, streamlining data protection processes, or simply adding storage capacity, the EqualLogic PS Series from Dell offers a family of proven, high-performance, self-managing storage arrays designed to meet the requirements of today’s critical datacenter environments.
