Dell EqualLogic PS6000S SSD iSCSI Storage Array

Virtualized iSCSI SAN with SSD for affordable and easy access to low latency and high-I/O storage

* As little as 1/3rd the latency of a 15K RPM SAS array
* Up to 3X the IOPS of a 15K RPM SAS array
* Good for intense, moderate-capacity workloads, such as SQL or Oracle tempdbs or consolidated virtual desktop environments like VMware View with linked clones

The Dell EqualLogic PS6000S is a virtualized iSCSI SAN that combines intelligence and automation with fault tolerance to provide simplified administration, rapid deployment, enterprise performance and reliability, and seamless scalability. With Solid State Drives (SSD) the PS6000S array provides low-latency, high-IOPS transactional performance.

The PS6000S 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 sense network topology, automatically build RAID sets, and conduct system health checks to help ensure that all components are fully functional. A PS6000S 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 – to help prevent both under utilization and over-provisioning. Using patented data movement technology, all PS Series arrays can work together to automatically manage data, load balance across system resources and expand to meet growing needs.
