Part Number

All storage systems are highly reliable, versatile, and able to scale its performance by adding more drive chassis and data drives. Depending on the system configuration, the drive chassis offerings support SAS-interface disk and solid-state drives.

High performance

  • Dual controller configuration distributes processing to each controller
  • Equipped with high capacity cache to provide a total of 256 GB or128 GB of high-speed processing
  • Flash drive configuration increases I/O processing speeds
  • Equipped with 32/16-Gbps Fibre Channel or 10-Gbps iSCSI interface facilitates high-speed data transfer

High reliability

  • Main system components are configured with redundancy to maintain continued service
  • RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 6 support (RAID 6 including 14D+2P)
  • Provides data security by transferring data to cache flash memory at the time of a power outage

Scalability and versatility

  • Supports small form-factor drive trays (DBS/DBSE) requiring 2U of rack space and up to 24 2.5-inch HDDs and/or flash drives can be installed
  • Supports large form factor drive trays (DBL/DBLE) requiring 2U of rack space and up to 12 3.5-inch HDDs can be installed
  • Supports high-density intermix drive tray (DB60) requiring 4U of rack space and a selection of up to 60 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch HDDs can be installed
