Global enterprise businesses continue to generate enormous amounts of data at record growth rates. They use this data to help create business opportunities with valuable insights and to streamline business processes. As enterprise data increases year over year, so has the need for high-capacity, cost-efficient and dense data storage. Dell’s PowerVault MD Series for PowerEdge Server DAS, extend the value of each server investment with flexible capacity expansion to multiple petabytes per server when running databases, virtualization, business and web applications, test/dev and other workloads.

Above all, PowerVault MD Series is designed to future proof your investment, with support for emerging technologies such as 24Gb SAS host connectivity and PERC SAS4 controllers. PowerVault MD and PowerEdge server products have united to provide businesses with a future-ready path that will ensure continued value into the distant future.

PowerVault JBODs are ideal for high-capacity workloads and are available in three affordable enclosures including MD2412 (2U), MD2424 (2U) and MD2460 (4U). The MD2412 and MD2424 2U models use 3.5” HDDs and 2.5” SSDs respectively while the MD2460 4U dense model uses 3.5” HDDs and will scale up to 2.4PB. Systems administrators can use iDRAC to monitor and manage each MD model connected to PowerEdge servers, even when the server is turned off. iDRAC simplifies local and remote management tasks for administrators with a choice of using web-based or command line interfaces.

Better Together: PowerEdge Servers & PowerVault Storage

Adding external storage to servers can create many tangible benefits for IT organizations. Separating servers from storage means you won’t be faced with server upgrades or server swaps due to lack of capacity. When connected to an MD system, server upgrades and maintenance can occur without data disruption as data remains in place. PowerEdge servers connected to PowerVault MD products give IT organizations a dynamic and scalable infrastructure for any size business – flexibly and economically



-Affordably scale up capacity to 2.4PB1 for a single Dell PowerEdge server.
-Keep data on a single device vs splitting up files and workloads.
-Maintain your compute performance while easily adding storage capacity.
-Multiple PowerEdge server generation support.
-Familiar local and remote server management with iDRAC.
-OEM-ready from bezel to packaging.

Match your data requirements

PowerVault MD Series doubles host connectivity from previous generation enclosures to support a broad range of SAS, NL-SAS and SSD drives to fit your exact specifications of any workload.

Experience a valuable and reliable storage capacity solution for your PowerEdge workloads with options like the high-density MD2460 with up to 60 x 3.5" drive slots, the performance-optimized MD2424 with up to 24 x 2.5" drive slots for 10K HDDs and SSDs, and the low-cost dense MD2412 with 12 x 3.5" drive slots.

PowerEdge server management with iDRAC allows you to manage both the in-server storage and external DAS as a single interface, optimizing your 24Gb connectivity. The option to include self-encrypted drives (SEDs) in the MD Series enclosure with drive-level encryption allows you to prioritize drive security by ensuring your data is secure--even when the drive is removed. The SEDs also support instant Secure Erase, which permanently removes data when repurposing or decommissioning drives.
