Designed for flexibility, the MD3 iSCSI array series support a range of drive types, enclosures and RAID levels all within a single array. PowerVault MD3 iSCSI arrays offer exceptional performance and flexibility for storage consolidation and scalability to meet your business demands. Now it's simple to improve storage utilization by combining storage resources, increasing availability with redundant hardware, and streamlining the backup process. ISCSI storage, ideal for virtual server environments.Implement your high performance network storage solution for less with MD3 iSCSI array series using low-cost 10GBASE-T Ethernet technology. Along with significant savings in hardware, IP SANs can also lower training investment. Ethernet is a familiar technology, so there's usually no learning curve. Now you can effectively consolidate storage to support the value of your virtual environment with the performance to meet both IOPS-intensive as well as high bandwidth applications. MD3 storage systems are fully-qualified for use in virtualized application environments with VMware ESX and Microsoft Hyper-V software.
Keep pace with the latest technology. MD3 iSCSI arrays offer maximum performance and capacity at an affordable price. They easily handle the application demands of large databases with increased processing capability.
These arrays also support solid-state drives (SSD) to meet the most demanding I/O requirements. An optional High-Performance Tier (HPT) feature is available to increase array I/O and throughput performance and enables the SSD cache feature to improve your read performance by storing frequently read data and making it quickly accessible. A maximum of 16GB cache is available with the dual controller option, leveraging 8GB cache per controller.
Gain a new level of management efficiency. MD3 iSCSI arrays are managed by the advanced MD Storage Manager software, an intuitive client-based Java application designed for easy user interaction with the system no matter what your level of familiarity with storage systems. It offers two different management paths and features an enterprise window that monitors multiple arrays through a single interface.With the MD Storage Manager, all administrative tasks, including configuration, reconfiguration, expansion, maintenance and performance-tuning, can be performed without system downtime or interruption to array performance. MD Storage Manager's configuration flexibility includes the ability to mix RAID levels, segment sizes, array sizes and cache policies all within a single storage array.
Scale easily: Up to 64 servers can be connected to a single MD3 10Gb iSCSI array. Storage capacity can be expanded up to a base of 120 hard drives1 on all MD3 iSCSI models. If additional capacity is needed, the 2U models can scale by simply hot-plugging additional PowerVault MD1200 or MD1220 expansion enclosures to grow capacity up to 192 hard drives.
1 4U dense arrays can scale up to 180 hard drives1 in just 12U using two MD3060e expansion enclosures. Mix and match drives: 2U arrays hold up to 12 x 3.5" or 24 x 2.5" drives, and support additional expansion through the MD1200 enclosure (12 x 3.5") or MD1220 enclosure (24 x 2.5").
