    EqualLogic PS4000x iSCSI SAN Array
    Dell EqualLogic PS4000X

    Dell EqualLogic PS4000X

    The Dell EqualLogic™ PS4000 Series of virtualized iSCSI SAN arrays are designed to bring enterprise-class features, intelligence, automation and reliability to remote or branch office, departmental and small-to-medium business (SMB) storage deployments.

    The PS4000 Series addresses branch office and SMB storage needs with simplified administration, rapid deployment and an affordable price, while providing a full set of enterprise-class data protection and management features, solid performance, scalability and fault tolerance. With 10,000 rpm serial attached SCSI (SAS) disk drives, the PS4000X array provides up to 9.6 TB of storage for a great balance of cost-effective performance and capacity. To grow storage capacity and performance for remote office needs, two PS4000 arrays can be combined in a SAN group. To further scale out the SAN, EqualLogic PS6000 arrays can be added seamlessly without sacrificing the initial investment in PS4000 arrays.

    Exceptional Ease of Use

    Exceptional Ease of Use

    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 all components are fully functional. The PS4000X is designed to be installed, configured and operational in less than one hour. To improve enterprise-wide storage management, the EqualLogic SAN HeadQuarters software tool provides centralized performance and event monitoring of EqualLogic SANs across multiple sites — for instance, monitoring PS4000 deployments at branch offices and PS6000 deployments in corporate data centers.
    Modular Design with Enterprise Reliability

    Modular Design with Enterprise Reliability

    To help prevent both underutilization and over-provisioning, 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. Using innovative data movement technology, all EqualLogic PS Series arrays within 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 ruggedness requirements of the enterprise data center and remote office. The PS4000X includes fault tolerance capabilities, through fully redundant and hot-swappable components — optional dual-controllers, standard dual fan trays, dual power supplies and disk drives with hot spares.

    EqualLogic Array Software

    Each EqualLogic array ships with a powerful set of software features that help you manage, protect and optimize your data. The EqualLogic Group Manager helps streamline storage and data management across both PS Series SAN arrays and FS Series NAS appliances. EqualLogic PS Series Firmware is the foundation of the EqualLogic software family. Integrated across the entire family of EqualLogic PS arrays, the EqualLogic PS Series Firmware is a SAN operating system based on a unique peer storage architecture that:



    • Virtualizes SAN resources 
    • Enables peer scalability of up to 16 arrays 
    • Provides intelligent data management functionality 
    • Automatically adjusts system resources 
    • Optimizes performance 
    • Reduces manual intervention

    Also included in the firmware is the EqualLogic Manual Transfer Utility that provides a non-network replication capability to minimize the time required to transfer large amounts of data between replication partners.

    EqualLogic’s latest firmware (release 7.0) includes enhanced functions for PS Series arrays such as:



    • Robust and scalable Access Control Policies for simplified administration
    • Newly redesigned GUI with search functionality
    • RAID policy recommendations to help promote RAID best practices 
    • New technologies with backward compatibility including a 64-bit kernel firmware version for newer arrays and support for 4K sector volumes and 4K native sector (4Kn) drives


    VMWare Host SoftwareEqualLogic Host Integration Tools

    This family of host-based software provides tight integration between the EqualLogic array and the host. Dell provides host integration tools for Microsoft®, VMware® and Linux® environments, providing customers with the following benefits:

    • Comprehensive data protection and availability
    • Integrated storage management 
    • Reliable performance 
    • Streamlined array configuration

    SAN HQEqualLogic SAN Headquarters

    Dell EqualLogic SAN Headquarters (SAN HQ) is a centralized monitoring and reporting tool that gathers and provides in-depth information on performance, capacity and alerts across multiple groups of EqualLogic PS arrays, helping improve performance and effective allocation of group resources.

    With Dell SupportAssist functionality, SAN HQ 3.0 can automatically create support cases based on system faults, and it allows you to view your open Dell Support cases for EqualLogic arrays monitored by SupportAssist.
