MD3060e Expansion Enclosure

The MD3060e is a 60-drive expansion enclosure specifically designed for the MD3 dense array series.  The MD3060e dense enclosure is an eBOD (expansion bunch of disks), which operate in the same fashion as a JBOD (just a bunch of disks). There are two hot swappable enclosure management modules (EMM) that allow for management of the expansion drives via the MD3 Dense Array controllers. Up to 2 expansion enclosures can be daisy chained to an MD3 Series array.

  • Options for mix and match of 3.5″, 2.5″, SED or SSD hard drives
  • Add 2 MD3060e enclosures (max) for up to 180 drives in just 12U, providing up to 1.8PB of raw capacity
  • Dual EMM controller option only, using the enclosure management modules
