DELL POWERVAULT MD1220
High-performance, energy-efficient direct-attached storage (DAS):
Customers seeking a direct-attached, energy-efficient storage array that provides the performance to satisfy demanding applications.
Expansion for Performance-Intensive, Single-Server Applications:
PowerVault MD1220 direct-attached storage (DAS) enclosure is the second generation of Dell's energy-efficient, small-form-factor (SFF), 2.5-inch drive expansion enclosure. The PowerVault MD1220 offers seamless expansion for Dell PowerEdge servers and various Dell Storage arrays, providing IOPs needed to satisfy performance-intensive application. This expansion array can support 24, 2.5-inch SAS hard-disk drives (HDDs) or solid-state drives (SSDs)* in a 2U array and expands up to 8 arrays per adapter, so you don’t have to trade capacity for performance.
Optimizing Performance, Enhancing Security While doubling the Throughput: The PowerVault MD1220 leverages SAS 2.0 technology, which enables double the throughput over previous generation, with a 6Gb/s SAS interface and offers performance optimization with automatic I/O load balancing across redundant paths and enhanced security, over previous generation with new self-encrypting drive (SED) support.
Improved efficiency: The PowerVault MD1220 improves energy efficiency over previous generation, with new 80PLUS® Silver Certified power supplies. This enhancement augments the efficiencies already gained with 2.5-inch drives and variable speed fans.
Satisfying Even the Most Performance-Hungry Applications:
The PowerVault MD1220 direct-attached storage array offers compelling performance.
6Gb/s SAS: With improved throughput from the last-generation, the PowerVault MD1220 can satisfy even the most performance-intensive applications, such as Web hosting, database and e-mail.
Solid State Drives: Pair the increased IOPs and throughput of 6Gb/s SAS with support for solid state drives (SSD), an ideal solution for applications that rely on random block access.
Automatic I/O Load Balancing: Further optimizing the performance of the PowerVault MD1220, the PERC H810 Host-RAID adapter has automatic I/O balancing between the server and storage array. The PERC H810 can detect when a single path starts to get saturated and then balance the I/O traffic across both paths.
The PowerVault MD1220 can deliver the speed, performance and reliability to satisfy performance intensive single server applications that store active and frequently changing information.
Leveraging the PERC H810 RAID Controller:
The PowerVault MD1220 leverages the latest PCI Express 2.0 interface, offering excellent performance for enterprise.
The configuration of the PERC H810 Host-RAID adapter helps to increase reliability and fault tolerance by enabling the software to recognize the entire array as a single unit, regardless of how many disks are activated for storage in the array. With the PERC H810, customers can choose the RAID option that supports their application. The PERC H810 supports RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 and 60.
Dell PowerVault MD1220 storage array is engineered to work optimally with Dell PowerEdge servers. Dell OpenManage Storage Manager Software can manage both the external array and internal storage within the server itself. See PERC H810 server compatibility matrix for a list of currently supported servers.
Streamlining storage management through a single, common interface helps reduce resource load on the system, and is easier to navigate for the user as well. The PowerVault MD1220 utilizes the same 2.5-inch drives as PowerEdge servers, and the same power supplies and fans as the PowerVault MD1200, helping to reduce the number of spares required.
