Disk Processor Enclosure (DPE) includes storage drives, storage processors, link control cards, power supplies, and fan modules. 2.5 " and 3.5 " are form factor or size of the storage drives. For example, a DPE 2.5  can accommodate a higher number of smaller 2.5 " size drives compared to a DPE 3.5 for the same storage array.
