The Dell EqualLogic PS6510E 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. The PS6510E delivers the lowest cost-per-gigabyte in the PS6010 Series with up to 144TB1 of SATA II, NL-SAS, or NL-SAS SED storage in a high-density 4U chassis. A PS Series SAN built with PS6510E arrays can scale up to 768TB1 under a single, intuitive management interface. The PS6510 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 generations2.
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 PS6510E is designed to be installed, configured, and serving storage in less than one hour.
The EqualLogic SAN line is designed to meet and exceed the rugged requirements of the data center. The PS6510E includes fault tolerance capabilities through fully redundant and hot-swappable components — dual-controllers, three fan trays and power supplies, and disk drives with hot spares.
With built-in storage features once available only to top-tier data centers, the PS6510E enables best practice storage for every size organization. Unlike traditional SANs, the EqualLogic PS Series includes software and applications expected from an enterprise-level SAN at no extra cost. The PS Series scales on-demand — and online — allowing storage growth without disrupting applications. As a result, EqualLogic PS6010E arrays provide exceptional flexibility at a low total cost of ownership.
