Storage
EqualLogic Solutions deliver the benefits of consolidated networked storage in a self-managing, iSCSI storage area network that is affordable and easy to use, regardless of scale. By eliminating complex tasks and enabling fast and flexible storage provisioning, EqualLogic solutions dramatically reduce the costs of storage acquisition and ongoing operations.

Patented page-based volume management enables automatic movement of data while it is in use. This technology provides the foundation for online expansion, automatic configuration and load balancing, performance optimization, and advanced software functionalities, all with continuous access to data. That means no downtime for increasing capacity, moving data between storage tiers, or load balancing storage, and most management tasks are handled by the array, not the administrator. As a result, EqualLogic makes enterprise-class shared-block storage practical for all servers and applications.
  • Unique Peer Storage Architecture. With EqualLogic's patented peer storage architecture, "peer" means collaboration and equal partnership in a single, simple architecture where components and arrays work together to share resources, distribute loads, and collaborate for maximum performance, total data protection, and seamless scaling. This architecture enables the array to perform numerous functions that eliminate complexity. These include:
    • Peer deployment, which enables PS Series arrays to be fully functioning 20 minutes after opening the box.
    • Peer control, which enables the array to continuously monitor resources and automatically manage configuration, load-balancing, capacity expansion, storage pools and tiers, volume snapshots, and replication.
    • Peer provisioning, for online, on-demand capacity expansion without disruption, including dynamic allocation of disk space, connectivity, security, and performance for every application.
    • Peer protection, which delivers comprehensive system monitoring, proactive disk drive scanning, group event notifications, multipathing, instant recovery, and disaster protection.
  • Modular Design and Enterprise Reliability. With the modular design of the EqualLogic PS series, you can buy only the amount of storage you need today and seamlessly scale in the future without disrupting business operations. Enterprise reliability features include fault tolerance; fully redundant, hot-swappable components (including disks, controllers, network interfaces, power supplies, and cooling fans); self-tuning, battery-backed, mirrored controller caches; hot sparing; support for RAID 5/10/50 and 99.999% availability.
  • Standards-Based Design Means Savings and Full Compatibility. EqualLogic solutions leverage both the cost advantages and management simplicity of Ethernet technology. PS Series arrays use industry-standard protocols, disk drives, and network interfaces to provide low connection costs and high performance access to data. In addition, EqualLogic solutions support all leading operating systems and host applications, eliminating application incompatibility problems.
With its unique peer storage architecture, EqualLogic's PS Series delivers high performance and availability in a flexible environment with low cost of ownership. Whether you are seeking to consolidate storage, migrate from SAN or NAS, streamline data protection, or expand capacity, the PS Series of proven, self-managing storage arrays will meet the demanding requirements of your business-critical environment.
