This new storage array series is aimed at enterprise customers and offers increased performance and advanced virtualisation capabilities, according to the vendor. The PS6000 series integrates seamlessly into existing EqualLogic storage area networks (SANs) to form a virtualised pool of storage. The appliances offer up to 2048 hosts per SAN port, or 512 per pool, and up to 8-48 drivers per array. In addition to the hardware, Dell has unveiled SAN Headquarters, a centralised dashboard that monitors performance and events for dozens of PS Series groups, potentially more than 10PB of SAN storage. SAN Headquarters is available to any EqualLogic customer with a support agreement at no additional cost. Part of a product refresh that also included workstations, and servers, Dell has released its Dell Management Console (DMC), a software solution powered by Altiris from Symantec, designed to unite systems management across IT environments into a single console. Dell’s standards-based, open approach to manageability includes tight integration with world-class systems management solutions.
