Dell Storage PS Series is an ideal solution providing reliable, high-speed, SAN-based disk storage using iSCSI. The iSCSI protocol leverages Ethernet to provide a network medium for storage area networks (SANs). The PS Series, used in conjunction with Dell PowerEdge 13th generation servers, can be coupled to provide a boot-from-SAN solution over iSCSI. This offers the flexibility and efficiencies of similar SAN-based booting solutions without the added expense of another SAN technology.

An administrator can configure PowerEdge 13th generation servers to use SAN-based volumes for booting the system. These steps are applicable to any common operating system installation, including Microsoft® Windows Server®, VMware® ESXi®, Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® (RHEL), and SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server (SLES).
