The PS5000XV 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 senses network topology, automatically builds RAID sets, and conducts system health checks to ensure that all components are fully functional. A PS5000XV can often be installed, configured and serving storage in less than 1 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 – preventing both underutilization and over-provisioning. Using patented data movement technology, all EqualLogic PS Series arrays in a SAN work together to automatically manage data, load balance across all resources and expand to meet growing storage needs.
