    Dell Powervault Md3220i 292GB (2 x 146GB HDD) 24 Bay Hard Drive Array Product Description

    The PowerVault MD3200i series is an iSCSI SAN solution that is ideal for entry-level storage consolidation in virtualized environments that require high availability. PowerVault MD3200i arrays are designed for environments that need higher capacity solutions while PowerVault MD3220i arrays are ideal for deployments that require increased density and higher performance.

    Ethernet-based network storage
    PowerVault MD3200i arrays offer exceptional performance and flexibility for storage consolidation and scalability to meet unexpected business demands. Now it's simple to improve storage utilization by combining storage resources,increasing availability with redundant hardware,and streamlining the backup process. A single management interface and a single system to back up also reduce management complexity.

    Consolidation = efficiency
    Reduce the effort required to store and manage your data. MD3200i series arrays can support up to 32 physical servers when connected to one or more 1Gb Ethernet switches. Storage capacity,up to a maximum of 96 hard disk drives,can be expanded by attaching a PowerVault MD1200 and/or MD1220 expansion enclosure.

    iSCSI storage,ideal for virtual server environments
    Implement your network storage solution for less with MD3200i series arrays using low-cost,well understood 1Gb Ethernet technology rather than typically complicated and expensive Fiber Channel solutions. Along with significant savings in hardware,IP SANs can also lower training costs. Ethernet is a familiar technology,so there's usually no learning curve.

    Keep pace with ever-increasing storage demands
    MD3200i arrays deliver an excellent performance/price ratio. Take advantage of a next-generation array with four (4) iSCSI ports per controller that offers a 2x performance improvement compared to earlier MD storage arrays. They easily handle the application demands of large databases with increased processing capability. These arrays also support solid state drives (SSD) to meet the most demanding I/O requirements.

    Gain a new level of management efficiency
    MD3200i series arrays are managed by the advanced MD Storage Manager software,an intuitive client-based Java application. Designed for easy user interaction with the system no matter what your level of familiarity with storage systems,it offers two different management paths and features an enterprise window that monitors multiple systems,including previous generation MD3000i arrays,through a single interface.
