Dell EqualLogic™ PS6500 and PS6510 Series arrays are designed to meet the performance and availability needs of virtualization environments in medium to large enterprises. These virtualized iSCSI SANs combine intelligence and automation with fault tolerance to provide simplified administration, rapid deployment, enterprise performance and reliability, and seamless scalability.
EqualLogic PS Series virtualized SANs enable cost-effective enterprise storage solutions for virtualized server environments. Providing similar benefits for load-balancing and seamless growth as virtualized servers, EqualLogic SANs have a patented virtualized peer storage architecture. EqualLogic arrays in a SAN work together to dynamically manage and move data, load balance across system resources, and expand online to meet growing storage needs. This virtualized modular storage architecture scales performance with capacity. Enabling IT managers to meet the needs of growing virtualization deployments by purchasing only the storage that is needed, when it is needed.
The EqualLogic PS6500ES and PS6510ES arrays incorporate high-speed, low-latency solid state drives with high-capacity hard disk drives in one array to provide performance and density without compromise. With the enterprise power and everyday simplicity of EqualLogic software, the PS6500ES and PS6510ES bring you auto-tiering that keeps your hot data readily accessible on low-latency SSD and your colder data on high-capacity, near-line SAS (NL-SAS), all within one array. For tiered workloads, PS6510ES can process up to 360% more IOPS with 75% reduced IO average latency when compared to PS6510X.1
