The Dell EqualLogic PS6510X 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 10,000 RPM SAS or SAS SED disk drives, the PS6510X array provides up to 43.2TB1 of storage for an excellent balance of cost-effective performance and large capacity. A PS Series SAN built with PS6510X arrays can scale up to 691.2TB1 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 PS6510X 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 PS6510X 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 PS6510X 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 PS6010X arrays provide exceptional flexibility at a low total cost of ownership.
