Disk Enclosures

Finding it difficult to keep up with the growth in unstructured data? Looking for a cost-effective high capacity direct attach storage (DAS) option? The HPE D6020 Disk Enclosure with 12 Gb/s SAS architecture extends and redefines DAS for ProLiant servers and BladeSystems, The D6020 Enclosure, designed for data-intensive environments, is a storage enclosure for dense, cost-effective external storage expansion for massive data capacity applications, at low $/GB. The D6020 Enclosure can be used not only as a standalone DAS enclosure, but can also be used for expansion in storage applications like Microsoft Storage Spaces, Lustre, Cloud backup, data protection or big data environments. The zoned direct-attach capabilities of the D6020 Enclosure allows server administrators to build local storage on the fly according to their configuration requirements.

Features

High-density, Low-cost External SAS Storage for HPE ProLiant Servers and BladeSystems

The HPE D6020 Disk Enclosure with dual I/O modules provides a 12 Gb/s SAS unit that is designed with two pull-out disk drawers to support Large Form Factor (LFF) SAS, SAS midline drives or SSDs in just 5U of rack space for customers needing a dense storage option with a low acquisition cost.

The simplicity of an in-rack storage solution reduces your expense and complexity from the storage architecture; just a Smart Array P441, P841, P741m Controller or the H241 HBA, 6 Gb/s SAS BL Switches in the blade enclosure connect up to six D6020 Enclosures.

Supports up to six D6020 Enclosures from a single BladeSystem enclosure providing up to 3360 TB (with 8 TB HDDs) of in-rack storage for customers requiring high-density, low-cost storage.

Ability to daisy-chain two enclosures increases the capacity up to 140 drives.

Microsoft Windows Storage Spaces Support enable software defined storage capability.

Build Local Storage on the Fly for BladeSystem Servers

The HPE D6020 Disk Enclosure with dual I/O modules uses the management software of the 6 Gb/s SAS BL Switch to group D6020 Enclosure units disk drives and assign them to individual blade servers. These drives now appear as local storage to that server.

With the D6020 Enclosure models zoned direct-attach capabilities server administrators can build local storage on the fly according to their configuration requirements.

Just add additional drives to the D6020 Enclosure and zone to a newly deployed blade server, or add capacity to the zone of an existing blade server configuration. No need for complex configuration or rewiring.

High-Performance 12 Gb/s SAS Connectivity to External Storage

The HPE D6020 Disk Enclosure with dual I/O modules delivers 12 Gb/s host connectivity enabling higher performance, eases configuration/deployment and broadens supported features of a D6020 Enclosure using HPE Smart Array P441, P841 or the P741m Controllers or HPE 6 Gb/s SAS BL Switches.

With the D6020 Enclosure, applications and storage are installed in the same rack. Latency is reduced as data does not travel over large distances.

Solid State Drive support with integrated “wear gauge” helps improves application performance and allows customers to reduce their operating costs by reducing foot prints and power consumptions.
