Expansion Capabilities*
Up to 192 drives with MD1200/MD1220 expansion enclosures on the MD3400 and MD3420 arrays
Up to 180 drives with MD3060e expansion enclosures on the MD3460 array

Connectivity
Hot-swappable controllers
MD34x0 and MD38x0x controllers are not compatible with the older generation arrays (MD32x0x and MD36x0x).

Single controller models:
MD3400/MD3420: Directly connect up to two high-availability (HA)-configured servers or eight non-HA-configured servers to a single MD3400 or MD3420 storage system. Available with 4GB cache controllers.

Dual controller models: MD3400/MD3420/MD3460
Directly connect up to four HA-configured servers or eight non-HA-configured servers to a single SAS storage system. Available with an option of 4GB or 8GB cache controllers.

MD3060e
contains two hot-swappable enclosure management modules (EMMs)

Controller features
Each controller provides four 12Gbps SAS ports (MD3400/MD3420/MD3460); a total of eight for dual controller models
Each controller contains 4GB or 8GB of battery-backed cache
Dual controllers operate in an active-active environment mirroring each other’s cache
Cache protection is provided via flash memory for permanent data protection
Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP)* eliminates the need for complex RAID management while optimizing data protection, and can be used with existing RAID configurations
Dual controllers are required for the MD3460 dense array
