Some servers were delivered to work the other day... two Dell PowerVault MD1000s "tethered" to two Dell PowerVault NF600s. We're using one of these as a disk target for our backup systems and the other as an offsite mirror.
What does this add up to? Well, take a look at the pictures and follow along with me:
- NF600 - fully populated with eight 1Tb
- MD1000 - fully populated with fifteen 1Tb drives
- That subtotals - 23Tb
- Multiply that times two, since we got a matched pair - that's a whopping 46Tb
