The Dell EqualLogic PS6000E 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. With SATA disk drives the PS6000E delivers good cost-per-Gigabyte with up to 32TB s of storage.
The PS6000E is an intelligent storage array that provides rapid installation, simple management and seamless expansion. All PS Series storage arrays include SAN configuration features and capabilities that sense network topology, automatically build RAID sets and conduct system health checks to help ensure that all components are fully functional. The PS6000E can often be installed, configured and operating in less than one hour.
EqualLogic PS Series arrays are based on a virtualized modular storage architecture that enables IT managers to purchase only the storage that is needed, when it is needed — to help prevent both underutilization and over-provisioning. Using patented data movement technology, all PS Series arrays can work together to automatically manage data, load balance across system resources and expand to meet growing needs. The EqualLogic PS Series is designed to meet and exceed the ruggedness requirements of the data center. The PS6000E includes fault tolerance capabilities through fully redundant and hot-swappable components — standard dual-controllers, dual fan trays, dual power supplies and disk drives with hot spares. Self-tuning write-back caches are battery-backed and mirrored across controllers for ultimate protection without compromising performance.
The PS6000E has built-in storage features once available only to top-tier data centers, enabling best practice storage for every size organization. EqualLogic PS Series arrays include the following enterprise data services and software features with no additional software licensing fees:
Data Protection, Availability and Recovery
Server Management and Protection Integration
Dell 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 arrays provide exceptional flexibility at a low total cost of ownership.
Whether consolidating a direct-attached storage (DAS) infrastructure, migrating data from and existing SAN, streamlining data protection processes or simply adding storage capacity, the Dell EqualLogic family of proven, high-performance, self-managing storage arrays is designed to meet the requirements of today’s critical datacenter environments.
