Adding capacity to your data center As data needs continue to grow and capacity expansion becomes a necessity, you have to address the delicate balance between the need for additional storage and the finite space within your data center. The answer is to seamlessly expand your PowerEdge servers or Dell Storage arrays with Dell’s direct attached storage (DAS) options. The new MD1400 and MD1420 enclosures are designed to offer high-efficiency DAS for the 13th generation of PowerEdge servers, with configurations ranging from 12 x 4TB HDDs to 24 x 12Gb 2.5" SSDs.
Introducing the new DAS for the latest generation of PowerEdge servers Versatile, reliable and cost effective, the MD1400 and MD1420 enclosures provide high-density and performance-optimized DAS configurations for the latest generation of Dell PowerEdge servers. Up to eight MD enclosures can be connected to each server using a 12Gb SAS host bus adapter (HBA) or the PowerEdge RAID Controller 9 (PERC9) card. Scaling capacity behind innovative next-generation servers enables end-to-end 12Gb solutions, including all-flash configurations, offering exceptional storage flexibility and IO performance for such applications as:
• High-performance databases • Streaming digital media • Storage-intensive applications
High-density MD3060e expansion enclosure Server expansion is affordable with the MD3060e dense expansion enclosure. The compact 4U form factor enables you to dramatically increase capacity and efficiency behind PowerEdge rack servers, supporting 6Gbps SAS connectivity with a host bus adaptor (HBA). With up to four attached expansion enclosures, the MD3060e can maximize capacity to almost a petabyte of storage per server while saving space, power and cooling expenses. It is an ideal solution for:
• Hosting companies that need affordable and dense storage • Work groups within a large IT organization, such as an R&D department • Universities or government agencies with high performance computing (HPC) deployments that require high-density storage • High-bandwidth or modular infrastructures, such as manufacturing, oil and gas, and video surveillance • Financial institutions that need to process volumes of data without increasing their data center footprint
Specifically engineered to work with the latest generation of PowerEdge servers using the newest line of PowerEdge RAID Controller 9 (PERC9) 12Gb SAS cards, these DAS enclosures have the flexibility to mix and match NL-SAS, SAS and SSD drives. Configurations range from high-density 12 x 4TB 6Gb HDDs (MD1400) to performance-optimized 24 x 12Gb 2.5" SSDs (MD1420).
A 6Gb SAS dense enclosure that is designed to add capacity for the Dell PowerEdge servers, models R620, R720 and R720xd. The compact 4U form factor increases capacity and efficiency with a small footprint. It supports up to 60 NL SAS, SAS HDDs or SSDs. This model requires a two-port LSI 9207-8E 6Gb SAS HBA.
An energy-efficient storage-expansion array that provides the performance to satisfy demanding single server applications. Mix SAS and near-line SAS drives to combine both performance and capacity. It supports up to 24 x 2.5" SAS HDDs or SSDs, including self-encrypting drives (SEDs), in a 2U array.
Offers versatility and high -capacity storage for mainstream applications with optimal performance in sequential (streaming) applications. It supports twelve 3.5" or 2.5" SAS HDDs or SSDs in a 2U array, with the flexibility to mix drives behind a single PERC H800 Host- RAID adapter.
Dell PowerVault MD3 storage arrays help you cost-effectively address the challenges of data growth with versatile solutions that are optimized for smaller-scale storage consolidation, flexible virtualization projects and high business continuity.
