Bought one of their PS6100XS hybrid arrays just before christmas.

Excellent device, not the highest IO ever, but it delivers around 10K IOPS, and good storage space, runnning raid6.
No 10GigE for me tho, unfortunately the investment in 10GigE must wait until next hardware cycle in the datacenter.. 2014 is just around the corner ;-)

Ive actually thought about it, Infiniband might not be such an bad idea, but there is a long time to 2014, and the turnaround on new technologies in the datacenter is alot higher than it used to.

Hi Brian. My name is Scott and I work for the Dell best practices team for EqualLogic. I am very happy you appreciate your new storage device and I would like to ask you if would share your testing parameters that gave you your 10k IOPS results. I am working with our 6100XVs right now so I may not quite get the performance results you did, but I love to see how customers like you take the time to performance test, as my team works very hard to make sure we write best practices to serve you guys. 10GigE comes out next week on those 6100 systems so we are testing them here like crazy. I hope you get a chance to check them out!

You can see some of that work here.

Nice to meet you,

Scott@Dell
