PS6100

Scale out enterprise storage solutions built for performance

PS6100 Default

Dell™ EqualLogic™ PS6100 Series arrays are designed to meet the performance and availability needs of virtualization environments in medium to large enterprises. These virtualized iSCSI storage area networks (SANs) combine intelligence and automation with fault tolerance to provide simplified administration, rapid deployment, enterprise performance and reliability, and seamless scalability using innovative Fluid Data™ technology.

The PS6100 Series continues the EqualLogic tradition of performance scaling linearly with capacity. With up to 60% IOPS improvements on typical workloads over previous-generation EqualLogic arrays, the new arrays are designed to grow with data demands. PS6100 arrays fit your needs with 2.5” or 3.5” drives in 2U or 4U form factors—all while delivering an increase in drives per array of up to 50% over the previous generation.
