Dell PowerVault MD3060e Dense Enclosure

Affordable density for Dell servers

When it comes to expanding DAS in your server deployment, there are several important questions to consider:
  • How much space do you need?
  • How quickly you can add more storage?
  • How can you add capacity while keeping power and cooling costs under control?
Your answer is the Dell PowerVault MD3060e dense enclosure, or JBOD (just a bunch of disks). The high-density storage solution in a compact 4U chassis enables quick expansion for PowerEdge R630, R730 and the R730xd servers while saving space, power and cooling expenses.2 The versatile design allows you to:
  • Mix and match up to 60 HDDs and SSDs in one chassis
  • Scale to 240 HDDs (with four MD3060e enclosure) per server
  • Maximize capacity to almost 2PB per R630 or R730 server3
  • Store over 1.9PB of data in less than one-half of a standard rack4
