Some of the new features include what they call auto-tiering, where data that needs to be on a faster storage, it would automatically detect that and move it to the faster storage or the most frequently accessed area. Data that doesn't move that much or is not accessed that often would go on a slower storage. It's more efficient, helps a company to maximize what they spend. This kind of storage costs a lot of money; they build that into the newer functionality and into newer SANs. If you are going to go with all-flash then it's very expensive but it has a lot of performance benefits and a lot of improvement in reliability. Some companies can afford leading edge. My company cannot afford leading edge, so we probably have to go one generation below. View full review »

Block size, controllers, failover mechanism in general for the controllers. 6510 and 6610 have two iSCSI connections in each controller. Why do 6110xxx members have only one, and why do the same members have the possibility of having an active iSCSI interface in the passive controller? It could make a lot of noise with a failover.

They may already have a product, but I would be interested in either hybrid-flash or possibly an all-flash option. View full review »

* Why is it not possible for both controllers to be simultaneously active (load balancing)? * The searchable online documentation is missing. View full review »

* Performance and vision for the product were lacking. * DELL was taking on too many storage solutions, and it felt like the EqualLogic series was not aggressively supported. View full review »
