The Dell PowerVault MD1220 direct-attached storage is the second generation of small form factor (SFF), 2.5-inch drive expansion enclosures. The PowerVault MD1220 provides seamless extension for PowerEdge servers and Dell Storage arrays, as well as the input/output operations per second (IOPS) required to support performance-intensive applications.
6Gbps SAS: With twice the throughput of the previous generation of direct-attached storage, the PowerVault MD1220 can accommodate the most performance-intensive applications, including web, database, and email hosting.
• Solid-state drives (SSD): Combine the enhanced IOPs and throughput of 6Gbps SAS with SSD support for an ideal solution for applications that rely on random-block access.
• Automated I/O load balancing: To further optimise the performance of the PowerVault MD1220, the PERC H810 HostRAID adapter offers automatic I/O load balancing that detects when a single lane becomes saturated and distributes I/O traffic across both paths.
New 80 PLUS Silver-certified power supply increase the energy efficiency of the PowerVault MD1220 over the previous generation. This upgrade augments the existing power, heat, and space efficiency of the SFF array. In actuality, 2.5-inch discs consume less energy and take up 70 percent less space than 3.5-inch drives.
In conjunction with variable-speed and temperature-controlled fans, the MD1220 is optimised to provide both performance and energy-efficiency in a single array.
