Dell recently announced that the PS5000 series was end-of-life as of April 22. Of course, the push was convenient given April 30 was their end of quarter. Nothing like an end-of-life deadline to drive in last minute deals!
Well, it turns out there a few more PS5000s lying around than they thought so the product line has a bit more life left. We are now hearing that June is most likely the phase out period. The good news is that the PS6000, which also includes the new solid-state iscsi model, is quickly taking the 5000’s place with an additional Gb connection and Gig of cache per controller.
So, until sometime in June…”PS5000, Get your PS5000s here while they last!” I’ll have a coke with mine.
