Match your data requirements
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.
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
Each uses the same hot-swappable drives, fans and power supplies as the 13th generation of PowerEdge servers, helping you simplify upkeep 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.
