Product Description
The FibreCAT SX40 SAS storage subsystem is a passive, directly connectable system for data storage or for expanding the hard disk capacity of connected PRIMERGY servers. With a height of 2U, the FibreCAT SX40 subsystem meets the requirements for a compact design with high hard disk capacity in 19-inch rack infrastructures. The FibreCAT SX40 storage system with its SAS technology enables flexible expansion with powerful and highly available hard disks as storage requirements grow. Up to 12 SAS and / or SATA hard disks offer a total maximum capacity of 12 Tbytes in an external housing. Cascading of up to 3 FibreCAT SX40s via the second SAS x4 port permits expansion to a maximum of 36 Tbytes of external hard disk capacity. In the FibreCAT SX40 storage subsystem, the active components – hot-plug hard disks and hot-plug power supply modules – can be replaced while the server is running. The redundant hot-plug power supply units can be connected with phase redundancy via separate power lines. Optimum and secure cooling of the hard disks is ensured by two independent fans in each power supply unit. For more detailed information please refer to the data sheet at:
