Dell: High-Density Storage Support For Microsoft Storage Spaces
Dell at TechEd said it is the biggest OEM storage supporter of Microsoft Storage Spaces technology for pooling storage capacity into virtual drives, and does so via a variety of servers, controllers, JBOD enclosures and more.
It expanded on that support with the news that its Dell PowerVault MD3060e enclosure now supports its PowerEdge R620, R720 and R720xd servers. The MD3060e is a 4U, 60-drive, high-density enclosure that expands to up to 240 hard drives behind a single server. Together with a fully configured R720xd with 50 TBs of internal capacity, this packs over a petabyte of capacity in under a half-rack of standard server rack space while supporting Microsoft Storage Spaces.
