    Dell Storage MD1420 - Expand and accelerate data access

    Expand and accelerate data access

    The Dell Storage MD1400 and MD1420 direct-attached storage (DAS) enclosures with 12Gb SAS throughput have been specifically engineered to work with the 13th generation of PowerEdge servers using the newest line of PowerEdge RAID Controller 9 (PERC9) 12Gb SAS HBA cards. Scaling capacity behind innovative next-generation servers enables end-to-end 12Gb solutions with exceptional storage flexibility and IO performance for such applications as:
    • High-performance databases
    • Streaming digital media
    • Storage-intensive applications
    Dell Storage MD1420 - Match your data requirements

    Match your data requirements

    With twice the data throughput as previous generation enclosures and flexibility to mix and match NL-SAS, SAS and SSD drives, the MD1400 and MD1420 offer you a wide variety of options that can fit your exact specifications. From the high-density MD1400 with up to 12 x 10TB 12Gb HDDs to the performance –optimized MD1420 with up to 24 x 12Gb 2.5" SSDs, whatever configuration you choose provides a viable storage solution for your particular workload.

    Directly connect up to eight MD enclosures behind your PowerEdge server using a 12Gb SAS host bus adapter (HBA) or the PERC H830/H840 card. Provide up to 960TB maximum capacity (eight MD1400 enclosures, each with 12 x 10TB 7200 rpm 3.5" SAS HDDs) or up to 192 high-speed SSDs (eight MD1420 enclosures, each with 24 x 12Gb SAS 2.5" SSDs) for each server.
    Dell Storage MD1420 - Manage and secure with ease

    Manage and secure with ease

    Dell OpenManage storage manager software allows you to manage both the in-server storage and external DAS as a single interface, optimizing with the end-to-end 12Gb connectivity. If drive security is a priority, the option to include self-encrypted drives (SEDs) with drive-level encryption ensures your data is secure, even when the drive is removed. What's more, the SEDs support instant Secure Erase, which permanently removes data when repurposing or decommissioning drives.

    The MD series complements the existing Microsoft® Windows Server® software currently operating on the PowerEdge servers, allowing users who are familiar with, or have standardized on, the Windows OS management tool to take advantage of their tightly integrated management tools.

    Keep your budget low

    Both PowerVault MD1400 and MD1420 use the same hot-swappable drives, fan, and power supplies to help you simplify and minimize the cost of replacements. The simple design, multiple configurations and shared technology with the host servers helps make the MD1400 and MD1420 reliable, cost-effective DAS for virtually any data center need, including critical applications such as backup and disaster recovery storage.
