Laz Vekiarides, executive director of software engineering for Dell EqualLogic, said the software upgrade allows a single management console for managing snapshots across server clusters, both physical and virtual.
"For example, we will do snapshot of all servers using HyperV. Before, it had to be done manually on each server, forcing you to take 16 different snapshots for 16-node cluster," he said. "This also brings a completely new use case to the Linux server community."
Pricing for the PS6110 starts at around $39,000 and the PS4110 starts at around $18,700. Both include three-years of Dell ProSupport services.
