Dell introduced two new storage options that take performance and management to new levels, the Dell EqualLogic PS6000 and Dell NX4. The EqualLogic PS6000 is a iSCSI-based product line, that includes PowerVault and Dell|EMC, with SAN implementation. The PS6000 is available in five models, including the PS6000S, which features EqualLogic’s first solid-state disk (SSD) array. Also includes support for RAID 6, and a redesigned controller including a fourth GbEport per controller. For software improvements, added Microsoft Hyper-V Smart Copy snapshot support in the EqualLogic Auto-Snapshot Manager/Microsoft Edition.
Dell NX4 is a network-attached storage (NAS) product that supports Windows, Linux and Unix file data and helps consolidate disparate storage systems by offering connectivity to NAS, iSCSI and Fibre Channel solutions.
