The Dell EqualLogic family of virtualized iSCSI SANs are designed to provide responsive, reliable support to end users; while increasing efficiency and decreasing the cost of data management. The PS6100XS virtualized iSCSI arrays are ideal for optimizing responsiveness of applications through intelligent tiering of data, within the array, across low-latency SSD drives and performance sensitive 10K RPM SAS hard disks.
- Optimize performance of tiered application workloads, such as virtual desktop or applications delivered as a service
- Intelligent data placement across SSD and 10K RPM SAS helps deliver excellent user responsiveness for tiered workloads
- Balance cost and performance with 13TB1 using a combination of SSD and 10K RPM SAS in a single array
- 2.5” disks configured in a 2U chassis optimizes performance per rack U and reduces its storage footprint
The PS6100XS 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 PS6100XS 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.
All PS Series storage arrays include SAN configuration features and capabilities that sense network connections, automatically build RAID sets, and conduct system health checks to help ensure that all components are fully functional. A PS6100XS is designed to be installed, configured, and serving storage in less than one hour.
