PS6210XS

A flash-enabled EqualLogic SAN can provide 1.2 million+ random read IOPS with less than 2-millisecond latency.

Source: Performance may vary depending on the workload and drive type. Based on September 2013 Dell performance testing using 8 PS6210XS arrays with Dell PowerEdge R620 and R610 servers and Dell Networking switches, using 100% read workloads.

The Dell EqualLogic PS6210XS hybrid array can host 2,000 VMware Horizon View desktops, a 2.4 times improvement over the Dell EqualLogic PS6110XS.

Source: Performance will vary depending on the VDI workload. Based on October 2013 Dell performance tests using LoginVSI VDI workload generator tool.
