MD3200 modular, high-performance and high-capacity arrays are ideal for consolidation and virtualization deployments. MD1200 Series direct-attached expansion enclosures can connect to MD3200 Series arrays and Dell PowerEdge™ servers to provide additional capacity for high performance and data-intensive applications. The MD1000 expansion enclosure is optimized to support high-capacity applications and easy expansion for pay-as-you-grow flexibility. Designed to pair perfectly with PowerEdge servers, the MD family uses the same components; as a result, you only need to stock a single type of spare drive, fan or power supply, enhancing support and service.
