PowerVault MD1200:PV MD1200 The DellPowerVault MD1200 expansion enclosure is optimized to satisfy applications that use lots of capacity and move large amounts of data. It is the first Dell enclosure that allows you to mix and match 2.5 and 3.5 inch drives in a 2-unit, 12-drive solution.

  • Seamless server expansion for 6Gb/s SAS environments
  • Supports mainstream and capacity-intensive applications such as e-mail, backup to disk, and video streaming
  • Deployment and drive versatility good for investment protection and data tiering

PowerVault MD1220: The PowerVault MD1220 expansion enclosure is PV MD 1220designed to support high-performance applications such as e-mail or database applications that store active and frequently changing information. The PowerVault MD1220 is Dell’s energy-efficient modular storage array and the first modular enclosure that can expand to support 192 drives including Solid State Drives (SSDs).

  • Seamless server expansion for 6Gb/s SAS environments
  • Supports performance-intensive applications such as Web server, database, and e-mail
  • 2.5-inch small-form-factor (SFF) array, energy-efficient array
