Dell Scale-out Unified Storage
Unified, virtualized IP storage. Versatile and uncomplicated.

The Dell EqualLogic FS7500 adds Network-attached storage (NAS) capability to the EqualLogic product line to provide a high performance, scale-out, unified storage solution. The FS7500 is powered by the Dell Fluid File System (FluidFS), Dell's high-performance, clustered, and network-accessible file system. Dual active-active controllers, redundant power supplies and fans, and battery-backed cache make the FS7500 an ideal solution for NAS deployments requiring high availability and high reliability.

The FS7500 extends the EqualLogic architecture to provide an integrated unified storage architecture compatible with all existing EqualLogic iSCSI arrays. All block and file data are stored on the backend EqualLogic PS Series group. File services are provided by the FS7500 through industry-standard CIFS/SMB and NFS protocols over standard Ethernet interfaces. Storage administrators may scale a single file share up to the capacity of the EqualLogic deployment and manage the unified storage infrastructure through a single interface.
