Always ready for the next big thing

Help accelerate storage infrastructure performance with high-speed SSDs and high-capacity NL-SAS HDDs combined in EqualLogic™ PS6510ES/PS6500ES hybrid arrays.

 

Dell EqualLogic PS6510ES/PS6500ES – Great for:

  • Multi workload environments with critical data sets and huge user shares: data warehousing, online transactional databases & media applications
  • High virtualisation performance with high I/O, low latency: large virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) implementations
  • Consolidating multi-tier workloads into a single array
  • Scale-out capacity and performance

Maximise your resources

Keep pace with your changing data-storage needs and make efficient use of your IT resources. Take full advantage of the high-speed hybrid design of the PS6510ES and PS6500ES to store and deliver data efficiently.

  • Enable efficient auto-tiering that keeps your hot data readily accessible on low-latency SSDs and your colder data on high-capacity, near-line SAS (NL-SAS) HDDs, all within one array.
  • Help consolidate multiple workloads with up to 84.8TB capacity.
  • Enhance network throughput with 10GbE connectivity in the PS6510ES array (1GbE connectivity with PS6500ES).
  • Accelerate performance up to 430 percent while lowering average I/O latency by up to 79 percent.

Hyper-enable your virtual environment

Manage multi-workload applications that have critical data sets and huge user shares. By deploying PS6510ES and PS6500ES hybrid arrays, you can cost-effectively facilitate major operations, such as:

  • Data warehousing
  • Online transactional databases
  • Large media operations
  • Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) implementations

Scale without fail

Simultaneously add capacity and computing power to your SAN environment without disruption through EqualLogic’s peer-scaling architecture.

  • Auto load balancing automatically redistributes data across Dell EqualLogic group resources to help maximise use and performance of all arrays.
  • Synchronous replication and volume undelete enable real-time data protection.
  • SAN Headquarters monitoring and analysis tools help optimise your existing storage infrastructure and help you plan for future expansion.


Enable enhanced SAN functionality

Automatically virtualise and optimise storage resources with EqualLogic Array Software 6.0, featuring:

  • Real-time data protection with synchronous replication
  • Increased efficiency with snapshot borrowing, volume unmap and volume undelete
  • Improved data security, incorporating self-encrypting drives and Internet Protocol Security (IPsec)
