Dell Powervault 220S SCSI Storage Array - 14 Bays, Dual Fans, Dual Power Supplies, Dual U320 Controller Cards - Brand New

Dell PowerVault 220S systems are reliable, flexible, external SCSI expansion enclosures designed to support multiple Dell storage environments and RAID configurations. Each system offers maximized drive-spindle count, hot-plug hard drives, optional redundant power, redundant cooling, rackmount capability, systems management features, and a modular design for easy upgrades. Most major components, including hard drives and power supply/cooling modules are hot-pluggable and can be removed and replaced easily. The enclosure management module (EMM), split-bus module, and SCSI terminator card are "warm-pluggable." This means they can be removed or inserted while the power is on, but all I/O activity has ceased.

Uses Dell 9D988 trays / caddies.
