*
Multiple SC8000 arrays may be deployed in “clustered” configurations of any size using the SC Series Live Volume feature. Transparent, non-disruptive volume movement among arrays is enabled, allowing the combined capacity and cache of the entire cluster to be seamlessly utilized for maximum performance and scalability in expanding data centres.

For example, a cluster of eight SC8000 arrays can provide a total of 7,680 drives (up to 24PB raw capacity) with over 1TB of system cache. Live Volume acts as a “storage hypervisor,” preserving server-side mappings as users quickly redistribute workloads among any number of additional controller pairs without I/O interruption. Best of all, the SC Series Volume Advisor feature recommends the best initial data placement within the cluster when new volumes are created, constantly monitoring all arrays to proactively recommend optimization changes as needed over time, based on customizable performance and capacity policies.
