Optimise file storage with Dell EMC EqualLogic FS7600 and FS7610 NAS appliances and the scalability, flexibility and efficiency of the new FluidFS v4 file system.
The Dell EMC EqualLogic FS7600 Series second generation, network-attached storage (NAS) appliances work with new and existing EqualLogic block storage systems to help provide highly scalable unified storage solutions. With unified storage, your EqualLogic system stores block and file data on a single platform, improving productivity and streamlining your IT infrastructure.
File services are provided by the FS7600 Series through industry-standard CIFS/SMB and NFS protocols over standard Ethernet interfaces. The Dell EMC EqualLogic FS7600 supports 1GbE connectivity to the SAN and client network while the FS7610 supports 10GbE connectivity for even faster access to file data and larger file systems.
The Dell EMC EqualLogic FS7600 Series uses the Dell EMC Fluid File System (FluidFS) v2 to optimise file access performance and hardware utilisation while eliminating capacity constraints. It presents a single file-system namespace through a virtual IP address, regardless of cluster size, and it enables you to expand a single file system up to the capacity of the EqualLogic deployment (maximum of 509TB usable storage).
As your needs grow and change, you can easily scale your Dell EMC EqualLogic Unified SAN/NAS system for both capacity and performance without disrupting the storage system or applications. For more capacity, simply add more EqualLogic arrays; for increased performance, add more FS7600 Series systems.
Deployment and management of the FS7600 Series is fully integrated into Dell EMC EqualLogic Group Manager, including administration, monitoring and maintenance operations. Group Manager automates the initial setup and configuration of your FS7600 system, simplifying the process of creating volumes and shares.
