Connectivity topology

The E1012 and E1024 support single and dual expansion module configurations. Standard models of the E1012 and E1024 ship with one or two expansion modules (see Table 2). Single module configurations can be upgraded to dual module configurations non-disruptively.

Each expansion module has two 6 Gb SAS x4 ports (Mini-SAS SFF-8088 connectors) labeled IN and OUT. These ports are used for connections to a supported RAID adapter installed in a server and for daisy chaining the E1012 and E1024 enclosures between each other. The external port on the RAID controller is connected to the IN port on the expansion module, and the OUT port on the expansion module is connected to the IN port on the expansion module in the adjacent enclosure and so on.

Single I/O module configurations can be used with a supported RAID adapter or HBA. In this topology, each port on the adapter is connected to a separate chain of single I/O expansion enclosures, as illustrated in the following figure.


Figure 5. Single I/O module connectivity topology

Dual I/O module configurations can be used with 2-port RAID adapters for high availability and performance. In this topology, each port on the RAID adapter is connected to a different I/O module chain within the same chain of dual I/O enclosures.

Dual I/O connectivity topology without enclosure redundancy is shown in the following figure.

In general, the types of Lenovo warranty service upgrades for the E1012 and E1024 are as follows:

  • Warranty and maintenance service upgrades:
    • Onsite support for 9x5 NBD coverage
    • 4-hour target response time with onsite, 9x5 or 24x7 service coverage
    • Up to five years of warranty extension for all service levels in one or two year increments
  • Hard Drive Retention

    Lenovo's Hard Drive Retention service is a multi-drive hard drive retention offering that ensures your data is always under your control, regardless of the number of hard drives that are installed in your Lenovo system. In the unlikely event of a hard drive failure, you retain possession of your hard drive while Lenovo replaces the failed drive part. Your data stays safely on your premises, in your hands. The Hard Drive Retention service can be purchased in convenient bundles with our warranty upgrades and extensions.
