Intelligent Data Tiering

One major advantage that the Dell EqualLogic PS6510 series provides these environments is data tiering. This allows PS6510 storage arrays to automatic place data on the appropriate disk technology by using historical I/O and performance patterns to make an intelligent decision.


Enhanced Bandwidth

The Dell EqualLogic PS6510 storage array series provides exceptional bandwidth because it features a newly redesigned 2 10GbE port controller, which allows for the 10x per-port and 2.5x per-array increases in bandwidth.

Purposeful Design

Dell EqualLogic PS6510 iSCSI SAN arrays perform best in virtualized small to medium enterprise environments for applications including capacity-intensive, business critical and tiered storage applications as well as streaming media, data backups and data protection.
