The Dell Storage MD3060e dense enclosure makes it easy to accommodate your growing PowerEdge server or SAN workloads efficiently and affordably. The PowerVault MD3060e is a 4U, 60-bay high-density JBOD (just a bunch of disks) that allows mixing of 2.5” and 3.5” drives in a single chassis. Up to four enclosures can scale behind a single server or SAN (R620, R630, R720, R730, R720XD, R730XD or MD3x60x models only) for up to 240 SAS or Nearline SAS hard drives or solid state drives. Beyond saving rack space in the datacenter over multiple enclosures with the same number of drives, the Dell MD3060e also offers lower power and cooling costs. The MD3060e seamlessly compliments Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 with tightly integrated management tools through Storage Spaces. Starting with twenty-drive configurations, start with the capacity you need, leaving plenty of room to expand without disruption as your capacity and application needs change.
