Product Description
The FibreCAT SX40 SAS storage subsystem is a passive, directly connectable system for data storage or 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. Depending on the model, the maximum internal hard disk capacity of a server can soon be exhausted. 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 hard disks offer a total maximum capacity of 3.6 Tbytes in an external housing. Cascading of up to 3 FibreCAT SX40s via the second SAS x4 link permits expansion to a maximum of 10.8 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 2 independent fans in each power supply unit. The FibreCAT SX40 storage subsystem provides information on the operating status of the subsystem and the most important internal modules via LED displays on the front panel. Hard disks and I/O and power supply units also indicate their operating status directly on the module by means of light-emitting diodes.
