EqualLogic NFS? How?

I found this quote on an EqualLogic site:
"EqualLogic PS Series iSCSI SANs offer multi-protocol NAS connectivity including NFS, CIFS/SMB, AFP, FTP, and HTTP."

I have a PS4000X but I have no idea how one would address it via anything other than iSCSI.  What am I missing?

When I talked to a Dell representative last week.  He mentioned that those NAS features were coming out any time now and would be a part of a new Firmware release.   Check the support site to see if your model has a new firmware version available.

I'm actually running the 5.0.0 firmware so my guess is it's coming sometime after that.

Thanks for the update.

The PS series arrays are currently block level storage devices only.  They do not support NAS protocols so that they run faster and more efficiently.  You will need to set up a server or dedicated NAS device such as EMC Celerra or NF/NX series Dell storage devices running Windows Storage Server.  I believe NetApp storage devices support NAS protocols as well.
