Dell EqualLogic PS Series
Simple and efficient storage management is critical to addressing the increasingly complex IT challenges from trends such as server virtualization, and exponential growth of application data. Applications, whether they are running in physical or virtual environments, continually demand more from their storage systems—as performance, capacity, availability, backup, and disaster recovery needs intensify, so do expectations of the servers and storage that support them. As a result, IT professionals need a storage solution that integrates a full complement of high-end management capabilities, includes data protection, and operates intelligently. They need a reliable storage system that expands transparently and provides consistent data availability regardless of the server configuration, operating system, or application.
Dell EqualLogic PS Series iSCSI storage arrays offer a fundamental change in the way enterprises think about purchasing and managing storage. Built on a patented peer storage architecture, these solutions offer enterprise-class performance and reliability, intelligent automation, and seamless virtualization of storage for simplified storage management. The PS Series combines an intelligent, automated management framework and a comprehensive set of enterprise data services with a fault-tolerant hardware architecture that supports many major operating systems. It delivers a modular and cost-effective solution that can be deployed in appropriate increments for small and medium businesses, while also being cost-effective for large enterprises requiring scalable capacity and high-end performance.
Peer Storage Architecture
The EqualLogic PS Series is based on a unique, peer storage architecture. In this context, peer describes the collaboration and equal partnership of a single, simple architecture; components and arrays function as peers, working together to share resources, evenly distribute loads, and collaborate to help optimize application performance and provide comprehensive data protection.
