Make SAN & DAS storage simple, fast and affordable

The PowerVault Series is a entry-level block storage array that’s purpose-built and optimized for price-sensitive SAN & DAS environments with the simplicity, performance and affordability you expect from Dell EMC.

The Dell EMC PowerVault Series brings the essential features of high-end storage to small-medium businesses — simply and affordably. These storage systems drive application performance higher for a wide range of businesses and applications. With its flexible connectivity options, the PowerVault arrays offer significant advantages for SAN/DAS workloads with outstanding IOPs, bandwidth, scale and latency. An all-inclusive software model helps to reduce OPEX and improve operational efficiencies — making the ME4 Series hard to beat. If you’re looking for raw power and absolute simplicity in a small footprint; if you’re cost-conscious and need storage availability and reliability, then Dell EMC PowerVault Series – starting in either 2U or 5U – is for you. Designed to deliver the performance of flash with the best economics of disk, the PowerVault systems are the perfect fit for small-scale storage consolidation, application acceleration, and business continuity.


Designed for capacity and performance
The MD Series offers the versatility needed to meet both your storage capacity and performance requirements. The MD1400 and MD1420 models are specifically designed to work with the latest PowerEdge servers using the PERC H830 or H840 RAID controllers with 12Gbps SAS offering unmatched I/O performance for database applications, streaming digital media environments and storage intensive applications

Seamless integration and management
Leveraging the technology and design of PowerEdge servers, the MD1400 and the MD1420 use the same hot-swappable drives, fans and power supplies to minimize the cost of spares. If drive security is a priority, the option to use self-encrypted drives (SED) with drive-level encryption ensures your data is secure, even if the drive is removed. Additionally, SEDs support instant Secure Erase of drives which permanently removes data when repurposing or decommissioning drives.

Data can be managed simply through Dell OpenManage™ system management technology, leveraging iDRAC (Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller) to help simplify and automate your most essential management tasks across server, storage and networking platforms in multi-hypervisor and OS environments.

Expand and accelerate data access

PowerVault MD1400 and MD1420 Direct-Attached Storage (DAS) enclosures with 12Gb SAS throughput have been specifically engineered to work with the 13th and 14th generation of PowerEdge servers
