    Dell Storage SC Series expansion enclosures

    Supporting up to 500 total drives and 3PB raw capacity in a single array, the SC7000 Series offers five supported expansion enclosures that you can mix and match depending on your specific performance, cost or density needs.

    Options are available for ultra-dense (84 drives in 5U) with the SC280 and new high-performance 12Gb SAS SC400 and SC420 enclosures. Adding a new enclosure is simple – the new drives can be automatically assimilated into the existing virtualized pool or set up as their own standalone pool. Data-in-place upgrades make it easy to change controllers and other key components, or migrate from legacy SC Series arrays.
