Dell EqualLogic Array Software
The Dell EqualLogic Array Software, including EqualLogic Firmware, EqualLogic Group Manager and EqualLogic Manual Transfer Utility, gives you the functionality to meet your current needs while preparing for future demands.
EqualLogic Array Software provides you with advanced SAN (Storage Attached Network) functions that enable virtualised storage and data protection. EqualLogic Host Integration Tools integrate the functionality of your array with your host platforms and applications for efficient data protection and simplified management. EqualLogic SAN Headquarters (SAN HQ) is a feature-rich management software for monitoring and analysing your SAN.
With EqualLogic Array Software, you don’t need to choose between data protection, capacity, performance and advanced management. EqualLogic Array Software features all the tools required for developing a sound data protection strategy and automatically virtualises and optimises resources within the SAN to deliver consistent application performance.
EqualLogic Firmware is a full-function SAN operating system integrated across the entire family of EqualLogic storage arrays that virtualises SAN resources and provides Fluid Data™ functionality. An essential component of the software is the capability to automatically adjust system resources—optimising performance and capacity and reducing IT administrative effort.
v6.0 Firmware – Enterprise Power with Everyday Simplicity
Dell EqualLogic Firmware 6.0 offers new features so your hardware can continue to meet your current needs and grow with you as the demands of the virtual era increase. In addition to the features you have come to rely on over the years, release 6.0 brings you new functionality, including:
- Enhanced data protection and SAN management with Synchronous Replication
- Increased efficiency with Snapshot Borrowing, Volume Unmap and Volume Undelete
- Improved data security, incorporating full-encrypting SED drives and IPSEC
And, as in all previous updates, array software 6.0 will run on your legacy EqualLogic systems under active service agreement with Dell, allowing you to bring these advanced enterprise-class SAN features into your existing environment without additional licensing costs. EqualLogic is multi-generational, so as your storage and business requirements grow, your existing SAN resources receive continuous advancements and capabilities.
Control your Infrastructure
EqualLogic Group Manager is a SAN management tool integrated with the EqualLogic Firmware that provides you with detailed information on your SAN configuration, and provides you with an easy-to-use tool for storage provisioning, replication scheduling and array management. The EqualLogic Group Manager is available as a command-line interface (CLI) or graphical-user interface (GUI) that can be accessed from Microsoft® Internet Explorer®, Mozilla® Firefox®, Safari® or Google Chrome® web browsers with a connection to the EqualLogic SAN.
EqualLogic Manual Transfer Utility is a host-based tool that enables the secure transfer of large amounts of data using removable media.
