EqualLogic FS7600/FS7610

EqualLogic FS7600/FS7610

Unify your datacenter with the FS7600 and FS7610

The Dell™ 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 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 FS7600 Series uses the Dell 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 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 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.

Scale-out EqualLogic unified storage

Deploy highly available scale-out NAS and unified storage systems with Dell™ EqualLogic™ FS7600 and FS7610, and EqualLogic™ PS Series arrays

Bring fully integrated, end-to-end unified storage to your Dell EqualLogic storage system with the FS7600 and FS7610 NAS appliances. These solutions work with EqualLogic PS Series arrays to deliver the core benefits of the EqualLogic platform, including peer scaling, ease-of-use features and all-inclusive software licensing, plus newly introduced features to the EqualLogic FS Series:

Key Benefits

  • Unified IP storage solution (iSCSI, CIFS, NFS)
  • Single file share scalability up to the full capacity of the EqualLogic deployment, currently validated to 509TB
  • Asynchronous, file system-level, snapshot-based replication to peer FS7600 Series systems
  • User-restorable snapshots
  • NDMP Back-Up
  • Compatible with all EqualLogic arrays running a current firmware version
  • Integrated with Group Manager, easy-to-use EqualLogic management software, or use the Command Line Interface (CLI)
  • Inclusive software delivery model
  • Single namespace with load balanced IO
  • Mirrored, battery-backed write cache
  • RAID 5, 6, 10, 50C

Dell Fluid File System (FluidFS) advantage

Help eliminate many of the limitations of traditional file systems with the exceptional innovations of Dell FluidFS v2.

  • Scale beyond the file system and file share capacity limits of conventional file systems
  • Manage growth with non-disruptive scaling of capacity and/or performance
  • Utilise a single namespace for easy administration
  • Present a storage pool as a single file system with a single virtual-IP address to the storage clients

Designed to grow

Efficiently manage your storage growth with the flexibility to non-disruptively scale both performance and capacity.

  • Seamlessly incorporate with existing or new EqualLogic PS Series arrays and help eliminate forklift upgrades.
  • Expand block and file storage capacity within a single namespace up to 509TB with a storage backend of EqualLogic PS arrays
  • Increase performance by adding a second FS7600 or FS7610 appliance
  • Intuitively manage block and file operations with EqualLogic Group Manager or CLI

Built in protection

Help guard your most valuable business assets with several data protection features, including user-restorable snapshots, asynchronous replication and NDMP backup capabilities.

  • File-level, user-restorable snapshots
  • Asynchronous, file system-level, snapshot-based replication to peer FS7600 or FS7610 systems
  • Full replication of the entire file system, including shares, exports and permissions, to help ease data recovery following a disaster
  • Backplane cache mirroring (over x8 PCIe link)
  • Common Internet File System (CIFS) anti-virus support
  • Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) common data network for localised backups and disaster recovery

Enhanced dependability

Streamline installation and enhance dependability with the many key benefits of the dedicated FS7600 and FS7610 high-availability NAS appliance.

  • Active/active clustering and cache mirroring for controller pairs
  • Integrated backup power supply to protect cached data in case of controller failure
  • Fully redundant and hot swappable controllers, power supplies and fans
  • Automatic controller failover
  • Checksums and failsafe journaling to protect file metadata

The right fit for small and midsize businesses

Unify block and file data within your existing storage infrastructure or deploy a new unified storage or NAS system with the FS7600 and FS7610. For example, you can:

  • Add NAS service to an existing deployment or create new unified and file-only storage systems
  • Consolidate Windows® / Linux file servers
  • Simplify deployment and management of both block and file storage using a single management interface
