Dell EqualLogic PS5000E
Dell EqualLogic PS5000E 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 SATA disk drives the PS5000E delivers great cost-per-Gigabyte and up to 16TBs of high capacity storage.
EXCEPTIONAL EASE OF USE
The PS5000E 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 senses network topology, automatically builds RAID sets, and conducts system health checks to ensure that all components are fully functional. A PS5000E can often be installed, configured and serving storage in less than 1 hour.
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 – preventing both underutilization and over-provisioning. Using patented data movement technology, all EqualLogic PS Series arrays in a SAN work together to automatically manage data, load balance across all resources and expand to meet growing storage needs.
The EqualLogic PS5000 Series is designed to meet and exceed the rugged requirements of the data centre. The PS5000E includes fault tolerance capabilities through fully redundant and hot swappable components – standard dual-controllers, 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.
