Dell equallogic ps4110 connections

Hello,

does the  equallogic ps4110 supports direct connection using iSCSI 10G without using SAN switches? and how many servers can be connected directly?

Thanks

Hello Moe,

No, direct attachment is not supported with the EQL product line.  You need to have at least one 10GbE switch.  Two is recommended for redundancy and you can't use 10GbE uplink ports on a GbE switch either.  

You'll end up with horrible performance and dropped connections.
