Dell EqualLogic PS6010XVS
The PS6010XVS reinforces the EqualLogic principles of intelligence, automation and scalable performance, with the addition of optimized data response for your applications through intelligent data tiering. Using a combination of low-latency SSD and performance oriented SAS drives the PS6010XVS automatically places data on the appropriate disk technology using historical I/O and performance patterns and helps optimize data response for your applications while maximizing efficiency. The ability to sense and intelligently respond to data requirements is a valuable feature for applications like virtual desktops that can benefit from low-latency SSD during desktop initialization (i.e. Bootstorm) and often require cost effective, performance-oriented storage for user data files. For applications that also require increased bandwidth, The PS6010 line features a redesigned 10GbE dual-port controller delivering up to 10x the bandwidth per port and 2.5x the bandwidth per array compared to previous generations.
Exceptional Ease Of Use
The PS6010XVS 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.
Modular Design With Enterprise Reliability
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 PS6010XVS 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.
