Simplified management

Dell Storage PS Series Array Software enables sound strategies for data protection, storage management, virtualization and optimization for the Dell Storage PS4210 arrays. This easy-to-use software allows IT generalists to manage more data with fewer resources and includes: 

  • EqualLogic Host Software to extend the functionality of the array-based software and enable cooperation with host operating systems, hypervisors and applications
  • Host Integration Tools for Microsoft, VMware and Linux products
  • SAN HQ management software with an interface for monitoring groups of PS Series arrays to ensure storage resources are utilized for maximum benefit and integrated into Dell Services with SupportAssist
  • Support for block and file data along with FS Series network attached storage (NAS)
  • Dell Storage Update Manager for simplified firmware updates of PS Series platforms

Economical and flexible

Dell Storage PS4210 Series includes four models that retain the simplicity and reliability of the EqualLogic PS Series product line but are right-sized and priced for small to medium businesses. The PS4210XS hybrid-flash array enables high performance and HDD capacity in a single array by automatically tiering hot data to SSDs and colder data to HDDs. The hybrid array is ideal for mission-critical workloads
such as VDI and OLTP deployments.
