What the letters on the Equallogic model mean


What the letters on the Equallogic model mean

by Trey Lester

Have you ever wondered what the Letters on the Equallogic model numbers actually mean? Well here is a little sheet to help you out. I’m going to us a PS6000 as my example. 


PS stands for Peer Storage, which is the concept of having members join together to create a group.

PS6000E – The E is the Slowest model. Not sure what E actually stands for, but some people think E-Z or express.

PS6000X – X is roman numeral 10; this model has 10k RPM drives – almost twice as fast as the E.

PS6000XV – XV is roman numeral 15; this model has 15k RPM drives – more than twice as fast as the E.

PS6000S – S means Solid State

PS6000XVS – XVS is split evenly between 15k drives and Solid State drives


So when you have to  purchase you next Equallocic array, you can have a good guide to what all those letters actually mean.
