PS5500E 4U - 48 x 3.5" 7.2K SATA


PS5500E 4U - 48 x 3.5" 7.2K SATA


Dell EqualLogic PS5500E is a virtualized iSCSI SAN that combines intelligence and automation with fault tolerance to provide simplified administration, rapid deployment, seamless scalability, enterprise performance and reliability. The PS5500E can support up to 48TB of storage when loaded with SATA drives in a high-density 4U chassis. All PS Series storage arrays include SAN configuration features and capabilities that sense network topology, automatically build RAID sets, and conduct system health checks to help ensure that all components are fully functional.

The PS5500E array is based on virtualized modular storage architecture that enables IT mangers to purchase only the storage they need, when they need it – helping to prevent both underutilization and over-provisioning. All PS Series arrays in a SAN work together to automatically manage data, load balance across all resources, and expand to meet growing storage needs. The PS5500E includes fault tolerance capabilities through fully redundant and hot-swappable components – dual controllers, standard dual fan trays, dual power supplies, and disk drives with hot spares. The PS5500E’s dual controllers provide a total of 2GB of battery-backed memory with up to 72 hours of data protection.
