"We are committed to simplifying IT and EqualLogic will help us realize that vision for our customers worldwide," said Michael Dell, chairman and CEO, Dell.
"Together, Dell and EqualLogic will deliver storage and server virtualization solutions that enable customers of any size to build resilient, flexible datacenters."

Dell EqualLogic PS5000 Series storage arrays share a revolutionary architecture to serve as the backbone of virtual datacenters. This dynamic architecture can deliver advanced storage functionality, simultaneous scaling of performance with capacity and enterprise-class management for one upfront price - eliminating upsells and hidden licensing fees. Using the iSCSI interconnect, the Dell EqualLogic architecture creates a flexible, virtualized environment for dynamic volume creation and movement, thin provisioning, scalability, remote replication, and easy interoperability within any IP-based datacenter.

"Networked storage has been too complex for too long. Dell EqualLogic helps solve that problem," said Darren Thomas, vice president and general manager.
"This is virtualized, consolidated storage that is self-managing, affordable and easy to use, regardless of scale. We're automating complex tasks, enabling fast and flexible provisioning while seamlessly integrating into the existing IT network. That's simplifying IT and this is the future of storage."
