Dell EqualLogic PS6110XS Review

The Dell EqualLogic PS6110XS is a 24-bay SAN that derives its storage capacity and performance from 17 x 2.5" SFF 600GB 10K RPM SAS HDDs and 7 x 2.5" 400GB SSDs and features dual storage controllers, each with 4GB of memory. As with other offerings in the Dell EqualLogic family, the PS6110XS reflects a major commitment from Dell to both advanced functionality and ease of use. The PS6110XS's ease of use and management is highlighted by a few key features like automated load balancing, to allow data migration across free storage, as well as intelligent data pooling that tiers data between the SSDs and HDDs based on usage.

Synology RackStation RS10613xs+ Review

The RackStation RS10613xs+ offers the greatest maximum capacity and performance in Synology’s network storage portfolio with the ability to manage total raw capacity as high as 424TB and maximum throughput specified at 2,000MB/s with 400,000 IOPS when both SSD caching and optional dual aggregated 10GbE interfaces are enabled. Running its DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system, Synology is marketing the device as a convergence of NAS and SAN capabilities. As with the RackStation RS3412xs we benchmarked at the beginning of the year, Synology’s approach with the RS10613xs+ is to unify file-level NAS storage with block-level SAN functions while providing hooks and integrations for a wide spectrum of common enterprise and SMB applications.
