PS6610

The Dell Storage PS6610 Series combines the power of 10GbE and dense storage, offering up to 3.5 times more capacity* compared to the previous generation.

*Source: Based on internal Dell analysis of total capacity in October 2014 comparing PS6610 arrays to PS6510 arrays.

With next-generation controllers and advanced software, the PS6610 offers 16 times more memory than previous generation, and up to 50% space savings with compression of snapshots and replicas.

Source: Based on September 2014 internal Dell analysis of the EqualLogic Array Software 8.0 compression feature with PS6210 arrays, using real-world home share environment comprised of snapshots and replicas. Requires a PS6210 or PS6610 in the environment. Results will vary based on configuration, data types and usage.
