PS4210 Series

With new hybrid arrays, the next-generation Dell Storage PS4210 Series offers up to 6x the performance improvement of the previous generation arrays.

Source: Based on August 2014 Dell performance testing the PS4210XS hybrid-flash arrays and the PS4110XV HDD arrays using IOmeter with 4KB block and 100% random read IOs. Actual performance will vary depending on the workload and drive type.

Dell Storage PS4210XS arrays provide up to 80,000 IOPS for random read performance.
