PS6510e - Adding SSDs

we have an PS6510e which appears hitting the I/O limit of the array - Is it possible to upgrade it by replacing some of the 7.2k SAS HDDs with SSDs?

RE: PS6510e - Adding SSDs

Hello,

No. Dell/EQL doesn't support changing drive types on existing arrays.  You would also have to reset the array to accomplish this change anyways.  Since only RAID6-Accelerated would work with the combination of SSD and SAS.  

Have you opened a support case to determine if you are in fact hitting the limit on that array?  What makes you believe you are hitting the limit?

Regards,

Don
