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.
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.
