Support Library - SC9000 Series (Compellent)

Product Overview:

The SC9000 is massively scalable with up to 1024 total drives and 6PB raw capacity in a single array.  All data is managed through the primary storage controller, deployed in redundant pairs. To expand capacity, you can mix and match from any of the five supported expansion enclosures, depending on your specific performance, cost or density needs.

Options are available for ultra-dense (84 drives in 5U) and new high-performance 12Gb SAS 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.
