Expansion Capabilities* 
MD3800f/MD3820f expand up to 192 drives with the MD1200 and MD1220*
MD3860f expand up to 180 hard drives with two of the MD3060e dense enclosures

MD3060e Dense Enclosure
EBOD expansion enclosure designed for use with the MD3 dense array series only (MD3260i, MD3860i, MD3860f)

Dimensions are identical to the dense array series (MD3260i, MD3860i, MD3860f)

Controllers on the MD3 dense series arrays have either one 6Gbps SAS Out port (MD3260i) or one 12Gbps SAS Out port (MD3460, MD3860i, and MD3860f) for connecting to the MD3060e enclosure expansion for additional capacity (maximum of 2 per dense array). For systems without premium feature activation, the physical disk limit is 120.

MD3060e contains two hot-swappable enclosure management modules (EMMs).
