Expansion Capacity

Can be combined with other PS Series arrays in the same SAN group online. A maximum of two PS-M4110 blade arrays can be in a group, up to four blade arrays per blade chassis. Additionally, the PS-M4110 can scale outside blade chassis to traditional PS Series arrays for up to sixteen in a SAN group. Additionally, PS and SC Series offer common management and cross-platform replication capabilities between arrays, providing PS Series customers the flexibility to add SC Series arrays to their environment, if and when they choose.Can be combined with other PS Series arrays in the same SAN group, online with a maximum of 16 total arrays per group that can support up to 2 PS4xxx arrays and 14 PS6xxx arrays. A maximum of two arrays can be in a group of PS4xxx series with up to 144TB. Additionally, PS and SC Series offer common management and cross-platform replication capabilities between arrays, providing PS Series customers the flexibility to add SC Series arrays to their environment, if and when they choose.Can be combined with other PS Series arrays in the same SAN group online; maximum of 16 total arrays per group that can support a maximum of 384 drives and up to 1.536PB with the PS6210 Series. With multigenerational capabilities, you can support up to 10 cross-generation types of controllers with multiple network configurations and drive types in a new or existing PS Series SAN resource pool, all managed by a single interface. Maximum number of drives and capacity varies based on configuration model and drive types. Additionally, PS and SC Series offer common management and cross-platform replication capabilities between arrays, providing PS Series customers the flexibility to add SC Series arrays to their environment, if and when they choose.Can be combined with other PS Series arrays in the same SAN group, online.
