Did you know?

The D3284 expansion enclosures support 12 Gbps SAS connectivity, which doubles the data transfer rate compared to 6 Gb SAS solutions to maximize performance of storage I/O-intensive applications.

With support for daisy chaining, the D3284 expansion enclosures can be scaled up to 3.36 PB for capacity-optimized configurations.

The D3284 expansion enclosures allow daisy chaining with D1212 and D1224 expansion enclosures: Up to two D3284 and two D1212 or one D1224 drive enclosures is supported in a single chain.

Key features

Key features and benefits provided by the D3284 storage expansion enclosures include:

  • Versatile, scalable storage expansion with dual Environmental Service Module (ESM) configurations for high availability and performance
  • Flexible host connectivity to match diverse client needs for direct attach storage with support for 6 Gb or 12 Gb SAS RAID adapters for advanced data protection or 6 Gb or 12 Gb SAS Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) for maximum JBOD performance
  • 12 Gb SAS drive-side connectivity and storage density with support for 84x 3.5-inch large form factor (LFF) drives in a 5U rack space
  • Scalability of up to 336 drives per HBA with the attachment of up to four D3284 daisy-chained expansion enclosures to satisfy growing needs for storage capacity and performance
  • Flexibility in daisy chaining of up to two D3284 and two D1212 or one D1224 drive enclosures
  • Flexibility in storing data on high performance SAS SSDs or capacity-optimized enterprise NL SAS HDDs; mixing and matching drive types on a single HBA to perfectly meet performance and capacity requirements for various workloads
  • Support multiple host attachments (application-specific)

The D3284 drive enclosures are designed to support a wide range of data storage requirements, from highly utilized applications to high-capacity, low usage applications.

The following SAS drives are supported by the D3284:

  • High-capacity, archival-class nearline disk drives: 4 TB, 6 TB, 8 TB, and 10 TB 7.2K rpm
  • High performance solid-state drives: 400 GB

Additional drives and expansion units are designed to be dynamically added with virtually no downtime (operating system dependent), helping to quickly and seamlessly respond to growing capacity demands.

The D3284 expansion enclosures are designed to offer high levels of system and data availability with the following technologies:

  • Dual ESMs provide redundant paths from a supported HBA to the drives in the enclosures for I/O load balancing and failover
  • Dual-port drives (both HDDs and SSDs) with automatic drive failure detection
  • Redundant hardware, including host ports, ESMs, power supplies, and cooling fans
  • Hot-swappable and customer replaceable components, including ESMs, power supplies, cooling fans, and drives

Host connectivity

The D3284 drive enclosures support dual environmental service module (ESM) configurations. Each ESM has three universal 12 Gb SAS x4 ports (Mini-SAS HD SFF-8644 connectors) labeled A, B, and C. These ports are used for connections to a supported SAS RAID controller or SAS HBA installed in a server and for daisy chaining the D3284 enclosures between each other or with the D1212 or D1224 enclosures.

Port A on each ESM is used for connecting the host's external SAS ports to the enclosure, or for connecting Port C on each ESM in the adjacent enclosure for daisy chaining.

Port B on each ESM is used for connecting the host's external SAS ports to the enclosure. Daisy-chaining does not use Port B for connections between adjacent enclosures.

Port C on each ESM is used for connecting the host's external SAS ports to the enclosure, or for connecting Port A on each ESM in the adjacent enclosure for daisy chaining.

Up to four D3284 drive enclosures, or two D3284 and two D1212 drive enclosures, or two D3284 and one D1224 drive enclosures can be daisy-chained with support for up to two hosts attached to the chain. Without daisy-chaining, a standalone D3284 drive enclosure can support up to three directly attached hosts.

Note: Attachment of more than one host to the same enclosure is supported with HBAs only (RAID controllers are not supported). While all attached hosts are capable of accessing all drives in the enclosures, the clustering software running on the hosts controls which cluster nodes have access to the drives at any given time.

The following figures illustrate different host connectivity topologies.
