Dell Updates EqualLogic Storage, Expands Linux Focus
February 28, 2012: As part of this week’s data center announcements, Dell is unveiling the next generation of its midmarket EqualLogic PS Series storage arrays, featuring 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) networking bandwidth, with increased storage capacity in a smaller footprint. The company says customers can improve performance for applications and workloads by 69% compared to previous-generation 10GbE EqualLogic arrays. In addition to two new models, Dell is also enhancing its software, and announcing the acquisition of AppAssure, a developer of application protection.
With up to 72 Tbytes in a single array and 1.2 petabytes in a single group, the PS6110 Series is configured with both optical (SFP+) and copper (10GBASE-T) 10-GbE networking. The PS4110 Series, Dell’s first 10-GbE EqualLogic entry-point arrays, provides the same benefits and features as the PS6110, supporting up to 36 Tbytes in a single array and 72 Tbytes in a single group.
