The Dell EqualLogic PS4000E is a virtualized iSCSI SAN array that’s designed to bring enterprise-class features, intelligence, automation and reliability to remote or branch offices, departmental and SMB storage deployments. The PS4000E provides simplified administration, rapid deployment at an affordable price while providing a full set of enterprise-class data management features. With up to 16 SATA drives, the PS4000E offers outstanding capacity value for an entry enterprise storage array.

The PS4000E includes SAN configuration features and capabilities that sense network connections, automatically build RAID sets, and conduct system health checks to help ensure that all components are fully functional. The PS4000E is based on a virtualized modular storage architecture that enables IT maangers to purchase only the storage they need, when they need it – to help prevent both underutilization and over-provisioning.
