Dell EqualLogic PS6000XV Virtualized iSCSI SAN Array

The Dell EqualLogic PS6000XV 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 15,000 RPM SAS disk drives the PS6000XV array provides high transactional performance with up to 7.2TB of storage capacity per array.

The PS6000XV 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 PS6000XV 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.The EqualLogic PS Series is designed to meet and exceed the rugged requirements of the data center. The PS6000XV includes fault tolerance capabilities through fully redundant and hot swappable components – dual-controllers, standard dual fan trays, dual power supplies and disk drives with hot spares. Self tuning write-back caches are battery-backed and mirrored across controllers for ultimate protection without compromising performance.
