Modular Design with Enterprise Reliability
The DellTM EqualLogicTM PS Series’ virtualized, modular architecture enables IT managers to purchase only the storage that is needed when it is needed – helping to 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 PS6500X can only be in a pool with other PS5500E, PS6500E and/or PS6500X systems.
All PS Series arrays are designed to exceed the rugged requirements of the data center. The PS6500X is fault tolerant with fully redundant and hot swappable components – standard dual-controllers, triple fan trays, triple redundant 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.
