PS6100 series

Deduplication and compression technology new with Version 4 of the Fluid FileSystem!

Bring fully integrated, end-to-end unified storage to your EqualLogic storage systems with the FS7600 and FS7610 NAS appliances. These solutions work with EqualLogic PS Series arrays to deliver the core benefits of the EqualLogic platform, including peer scaling, ease-of-use features and all-inclusive software licensing. The EqualLogic FS Series features:

  • 2U dedicated NAS platform with two highly available active-active controllers and a PCIe backplane for intercontroller communication
  • FS7610: Four 10GbE ports for SAN connectivity and four ports for the client network
  • FS7600: Eight GbE ports for SAN connectivity and eight ports for the client network

Store more in less space

New deduplication and compression technologies found in FluidFS v4 can decrease the capacity you’ll need to store common data by up to 48%. Fluid Data Reduction technology also has the ability to automatically compress data, further reducing your data footprint and TCO.

Protect data with enterprise-class featuresFS7600 GUI

FluidFS v4 also protects your data through:

  • File-level, user-restorable snapshots
  • Asynchronous, file system-level, snapshot-based replication to peer FS7600 or FS7610 systems
  • Full replication of the entire file system, including shares, exports and permissions, to help ease data recovery following a disaster
  • Common Internet File System (CIFS) anti-virus support through any ICAP AV server and certified partner software
  • Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) for backup and disaster recovery

Manage growth intelligently

Manage your storage growth with the flexibility to scale both performance and capacity independently without disruption.

  • Seamlessly incorporate with existing or new EqualLogic PS Series arrays and eliminate forklift upgrades.
  • Expand block and file storage capacity within a single namespace up to 509TB with a storage backend of EqualLogic PS arrays.
  • Improve scalability, performance and security with expanded protocol support.
  • Easily increase performance by adding a second FS7600 or FS7610 appliance.
  • Intuitively manage block and file operations with EqualLogic Group Manager or CLI.

Dependability built in.

For dependability day after and day, EqualLogic FS7600 and FS7610 NAS appliances include:

  • Active/active clustering and cache mirroring for controller pairs
  • Integrated backup power supply to protect cached data in case of controller failure
  • Fully redundant and hot swappable controllers, power supplies and fans
  • Automatic controller failover
  • Checksums and failsafe journaling to protect file metadata
