PS6100 series

The FS7500 extends the EqualLogic architecture to provide an integrated unified storage architecture compatible with all existing EqualLogic iSCSI arrays. All block and file data are stored on the backend EqualLogic PS Series group. File services are provided by the FS7500 through industry-standard CIFS/SMB and NFS protocols over standard Ethernet interfaces. Storage administrators may scale a single file share up to the capacity of the EqualLogic deployment and manage the unified storage infrastructure through a single interface.

The FS7500 fully supports classic EqualLogic family values, including pay as you grow scalability, ease-of-use and all-inclusive software licensing. File services performance can be seamlessly expanded on the fly by scaling out, i.e., adding an additional FS7500 NAS head into the EqualLogic group, without disrupting the storage system or applications. Management of the FS7500 is integrated directly into the EqualLogic Group Manager to improve productivity, making it easy to configure and manage iSCSI, CIFS and NFS storage.
