Dell EqualLogic PS4000XV Storage Area Network

One of my customers recently purchased a Dell EqualLogic PS4000XV Storage Area Network (SAN). Here are some pictures of the unit.

This seems to be a very cool piece of hardware for the SMB sector. I plan to write additional blogs in the near future on the configuration and performance of this unit.
