Dell PowerVault MD3060 Direct Attached Storage

The MD3060e dense enclosure makes server expansion affordable. It increases capacity and efficiency behind Dell™ PowerEdge™ server workloads. The versatile mix and match hard drive option supports more capacity than ever, allowing you to save space within your data center, and decrease power and cooling expenses. Administrators can non-disruptively scale to meet application demands and easily manage data through the host server.

As data needs continue to grow, there is a delicate balance of expanding capacity with additional storage and the finite space within
a data center. The MD3060e dense enclosure or JBOD (just-a-bunch-of-disks) offers Dell servers a new affordable storage option that can also lower power and cooling expenses because of its smaller footprint. You can scale capacity without incurring the expense of additional servers or traditional storage. With the modular design of the MD3060e, you can choose the amount of capacity you need now,
knowing that you can easily expand later. Plus, the 4U high-density enclosures take up less space than if you purchase the smaller form
factor enclosures with the same number of hard drives.

Key Features:

  • 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 2.4PB per R630 or R730 server*
  • Store over 2PB of data in less than one-half of a standard rack
