Notes

  1. SF100 and SF300 support scale up to any model within the SF family.
  2. All SF Series models consists of up to 21 HDD drives and 3 DFCs (holding up to 6 SSDs).
  3. Raw, usable, and effective capacities are shown in TB (10^12) and TiB (2^40 bytes). Usable and effective capacities take into account space used for parity, spares, SSD cache, and system overhead.
  4. Effective capacity is a range from minimum in the base array to maximum in the array plus expansion shelves. Assumes data reduction of 18:1 (18x) from compression and dedupe.
  5. Each array controller has 2x 10GbE ports built in. Optional ports are 1GbaseT, 10GbaseT or 10GbE SFP+ iSCSI, along with 8Gb or 16Gb Fibre Channel.
